No, unfortunately there isn't. Translation sites are set up for the Japanese, who can't use transcribed translations.

You have no choice but to learn writing and reading Japanese if you want to use translation engines.

Well, just when you figure you're gonna make it, just when you think you're really close, it all goes to hell again.

In this case it's my own fault, I applied for a job, and actually managed to get it. Unfortunately this means I don't know when I'll be able to finish the Grammar section.

Between now and 1,5 weeks I'll be leaving for Iraq. I will stay there for at least 4 months as a liaisons officer and interpreter/translator between the Japanese and Dutch army.

I will keep working on the Grammar section when I have the time, and I will also keep webmastering for The Foreigner, but other things will have priority as you can probably understand.

If you'd like more info on what things are "really" like in Iraq, then feel free to leave a message on The Foreigner's forum.

After a long wait, now finally the first half of the Japanese grammar section is online. This section will be expanded upon over time, but in essence already deals with every aspect of the Japanese grammar.

The introduction of this section lifts Japanese 101 above the level of a mere online course, and brings it to being a reference point for those who wish to know more.

As an alternative to the grammar section of Japanese 101 I recommend TheJapanesePage.com and A Logical Japanese Grammar, though these are still far from finished.

Well, being in Japan was not really a culture shock to me like it is most americans that are with me, yet I came here knowing no japanese..... and I've moved on to talking like a 7 month old baby since then.

I'm not so interested in learning the way other people do.... they learn though books that teach you only the politest little phrases and sayings, but when speaking like that to japanese people.... you get the hehe look.

With that being said..... I'm wondering if anybody has any suggestions through websites or what not, where I can teach myself conversationalism.

Thanks.

Im a long time view of this site and first time poster! I use to use this site alot to find help and such for my language learning. I have recently put together my japanese language learning website and people have started to email me saying thanks for your help its very helpful, why dont you tell others about it.

The unique thing i have on my website at trancefuel (www.trancefuel.com) is online internet live television you can watch. With a growing list and over 40 countries, and specifcially over 10 channels just from japan, its enjoyable and you can practice your listening comprehension and watch japanese tv shows from anywhere in the world. (VERY HELPFUL IN LEARNING A LANGUAGE)

Applaud

If any of you are having trouble learning the language or would like to improve your skills I suggest you to submerge yourself in the language. Being from california, US its kind of hard to do this. I usually spend time watching many japanese movies as well as japanese tv shows. how do you watch japanese tv shows 24hours a day 7 days a week in the US. ONLINE TV IS THE ANSWER. I started making this site for my self just to help me with keeping up my studying and indexing online tv stations from japan. But the growing demand from viewers to this site and increased interest and people emailing me, thanking me for having such a site, I decided to invest all my free time into maintaining this site and keeping it up to date. The site is trancefuel located at www.trancefuel.com. Once you arrive here you click on the Japanese link. Or you can go directly by typing japanese.trancefuel.com which will take you directly there. There is tons of online java based quiz software and other stuff. I have put together practice sheets in adobe pdf form so you can download, print them out, and practice them. Answers are included for checking yourself.

Also tons of software to quiz you on your ability to read kana and kanji. But my favorite is the tv shows. I can watch japanese tv shows any time of the day. simply goto www.trancefuel.com and click on the movie link, then on international tv viewing page. There are over 40 countries listed with their channels available. i have at least 10 stations directly from Japan that you can watch. I find that this is very helpful in getting a proper pronounciation of the words as well as praticing your listening comprehension. If you have any questions or need help with your learning of the language feel free to ask me. I am more than willing to help. as this helps me learn and reinforce my knowledge as well.

email is

Good Luck with your studies of the Japanese language. It is a self rewarding task and very valuable.

Japanese is the most COST benificial language to know in the world. With china coming in second and german in third!


Please let me know if I can be of help, i am a student of japanese myself but i love helping others that have a similar interest (main reason for creating this site) so make use of my free site. Post any questions you have or if the site is helpful or how i can make it better. I have been helped so much from you other forum members here, so i'd like to give back a little.

good luck with your language studies! hehe

your site sounds very promising - i've always wanted to see what shows airs in Japan Smile

i'm gonna check out your site when i get the chance.

and i agree with what you said, about watching TV shows and etc. to help you with learning another language. i, myself, am very interested in learning about the Japanese language and culture. it has always been my dream to go visit Japan one day and experience all the things they have to offer. Japan is a really beautiful country.

but sadly, i doubt i'll ever go visit Japan. with all the current financial problems i'm in and the "education" i've recieved, my chances are very slim. it's near impossible for me to study the Japanese language..

who knows, maybe my luck will one day turn around.

At the page below you can enter a URL to any Japanese Site and once the site has been opened, you can mouse over Kanji you don't understand and it will give you a pop-up with the Hiragana-reading of the kanji and English translations.

What is the best way to learn Japanese? My favourite learning method is conversation exchange. This way you can practice your second language by speaking to a native speaker (have a look at the website below).

What about you? What do you think is the best way to learn Japanese?
