Hi everyone. I just joined the team. It looks like it is a bit sleepy in here so I am going to see if it will wake up :)
I have a pal in Japan. She is native and married to my church's missionary. Because of her and a life long interest in Asian things...language, religions, Anime, people..you name it...i am seriously trying to learn the language.
I recomment Pimsleurs's language course. It is really useful but youtube has all sorts of people that post how to speak Japanese. It is ok for starting out. At the moment I can understand 95% of Katakana. I play 2 online games to learn. One is called Knuckle's in Chinaland and the other is called Slimeland.
I know some romanji and stuff but don't think it is good to learn that so much as needing to know hiragana and kanji..that might take some time. I am trying to learn how to speak...that is mostly what I need to know when I head to Japan in a few years. I am on Sparkpeople to get thin enough so when I got to Japan and walk up Mt Fuji I don't die. But lately I have either been sick or lazy. So now I am starting to be healthy so will have to stop being lazy :)

I believe to be extra-ordinary I can't do it without God and I have to do what the ordinary person refuses to do.
I also think we can do anything if we are willing to pay the price and take the time that our goal requires. Are you willing to pay the price and spend the time to gain your goal?
