Learning Japanese! - August 30th 2010, 08:05 PM

I've been using a program called Rosetta Stone (google it!) and it's been going really well to aid me in learning Japanese. But since it is all computer based, like answering questions and speaking, I feel like I'm missing a vital part of learning a language.

Can anyone reccommend a good Japanese learning textbook? Preferably not a really expensive one, and one that I could purchase from a shop in the UK. I don't mind buying online if that's the only way, though. I don't quite know exactly what type of book I'm looking for, but something easy and simple for learning the language.

Thanks

If you don't want to buy anything, there's probably free online sites that teach the Japanese language. Right now I'm learning Tagalog and Korean and found awesome learning sites for those so I bet you can find some for Japanese!

And if you really want to get engrossed in the language, there's also this site that you can join http://asianlanguagepals.worldfriends.tv/ it's a site where you can meet other Asians


You can lose yourself. Everything. All boundaries. All time.

And just when the sweet confusion is so intense you think you're gonna die... you kind of do.

Leaving you alone in your separate body, but the one you love is still there.

That's a miracle.

You can go to heaven and come back alive. You can go back anytime you want with the one you love.

I don't mind spending some money, just not a lot. I've been through a lot of the websites for learning Japanese and they've all been really helpful! I would just like a textbook to physically have and read. I think I would benefit a lot more from reading a book as well as using the Rosetta Stone program.

Thanks

Well, I don't know of any good textbooks but if you have a DS you can get My Japanese Coach. It's really good, although I've been using the Chinese one more than the Japanese one. I find it really easy to learn with since usually I suck at learning languages.

Have you tried going into a bookstore and asking if they have books that will help you? I usually search on amazon for books because they seem to have reasonable prices

I agree with Jen, have you tried asking in a bookshop?? Or if you know anyone who has done Japanese you could ask them....my friend started learnning Japanese for the Leaving Certificate a couple of years ago so I'll ask them what textbook they used, although it may be Irish
