    I know there is no "Easy way" .

    I have a couple of books and I'm looking into some audio books.

    If I knew someone who spoke I could be corrected.



    Well, it not for a job or anything I just figured another language would open more doors for me.

    Plus I really like the language compared to others.

    Yeah,I'm not as old as you thought :outcold.

    I can only tell you one thing as a person who is also learning Japanese. You can't really fully learn it without someone else who could help you out.

    http://nihongoresources.com/

    http://guidetojapanese.org/

    Those two sites have help me very very much. Use them.

    Luckily,. the internet is full of wonderful resources! Take a peek at these;

    ManyThings (Link) - Wonderful sources of quizzes,. games,. and all sorts of information on the written/spoken language.
    ChipChat Quiz (Link) - Another Hiragana / Katakana site with quizzes over the Kana you specify.
    All About Kanji Radicals (Link) - When you do start learning Kanji,. this becomes a lifesaver. All Kanji have radicals that can help you decipher meaning / pronunciation if you know where to look.

    As far as the spoken language goes; I'd look into the "Pimsleur" units,. I've reached the second level of Japanese through that and its' worked miracles.
    http://www.pimsleurapproach.com/learn-japanese.asp ( ... Of course you can find it elsewhere free ...)

    hope that helps! best of luck!

    thanks for the sites. i've been learning Jap for the past 2 years and i must say, those sites are a big help.

    RamenGuy, I've been trying to learn Japanese too. The site I'm using is this:

    http://www.thejapanesepage.com/news.php

    They teach you the 3 system of the Japanese alphabet (hiragana, katakana, and kanji), how to write them, how to pronounce them, etc. They also teach you Japanese grammer.

    Hope it helps!

    You're quite welcome,. Knowledge is free .. (or so they say)

    Speaking of which,. Here is the first two Lessons from the Pimsleurs set of Japanese I. Enjoy & Best of luck!

    {MEGAUPLOAD} Japanese Unit I - Lesson 01
    {MEGAUPLOAD} Japanese Unit I - Lesson 02

    Let me know how those work out for you; I'll try looking for some more in the future.

    I think the best way is buying a self-didacted (I dunno if it's called right in english) and look if you are really ready to start learning all those gramatic and kanjis and everything...

    About going to Japan, all I heard is that if a student goes there to study the language, he learns a lot more if he's a newbie than if he's expert (and being a newbie you get a really strong basical things).

    I hope I'll go the next summer to Japan, I've been only 2 years studying but I think I can go there and stay without having to speak english in any moment

    Edit: Btw, take a look at www.realkana.com , it has simple quizzes about the hiragana and katakana you specify
