Trying To Learn Japanese.

Hey guys, I'm currently Trying to learn some Japanese. I really admire the culture and I'm just trying to get atleast some of the language down. Maybe even visit over in Tokyo someday. I just bought a cheap Japanese immersion 5 CD set. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried that roseta stone software ?? Before i spend houndreds of dallors on just the first set witch i belive about 200 bucks ? then theres like 3 other lessons, and thats almost like 400 or so dallors. Just wanted to see what you guys think of this. What sucks for me right now is i live about 40 miles away from almost any civilisation and college is alittle bit of a hassle to afford to get back and forth.

Do you guys think its possible to atleast speak fluent Japanse using CD software ?

Thank you all for your time.

Kody Hughes

Ha... I d/l'ed rosetta 4 lesson with 21 other languages hahaa.... Don't bother with none of that stuff.... First watch more anime and and japanese drama... Watch those like 3 hours a day especially dramas. Then start watching eps without subtitles and see how much you get out of it....

Then move onto rosetta stone and stuff like that.... I personally am very visual and in rosetta stone and other programs lacks emotion which humans have better retention. Then do rosetta stones for the basics... You gotta get used to the language and culture and immerse yourself... then start learning... Otherwise you lose interest fast....

That is how I started and still haven't really had time to go to class and rosetta stone, but I can pick up about 40% of normal speed conversations when I am in Japan. Side note, I got there like 4 times a year to Tokyo cause GF lives there... Unfortunately... she is there... otherwise it would be crazy.... oh wellz....

Oh watching dramas and stuff will give you a good basis of Japanese slang and pronunciations. Oh and if you didn't know Japanese is kinda spoken in slang which is VERY different from textbooks....

Hope that helps....

Awesome thanks once again! really appriciate it guys. My mom wanted to just send me there with out being able to speak Japanese at all.. What do you guys think of that idea? Cuz she said thats probly the best way to learn since ill be at the source of it all. I just dont wanna look like an idiot and not be able to understand a word what there saying.

I could actually go there when ever i want if i just talk to one of our family friends cuz he travels alot and give my mom plane tickets around the whole world just to see each other.. He said tokyo is one of his favorite places to go. So im sure if i had my mom talk to him about it he would buy me tickets, send me money to get around and get and sleep. Hes really rich.. But im just alittle nervious with no knowlege of this language.

Its nerve racking I think.... Its like people look at you kinda weird especially in Tokyo cause they are renowned to be a little snobbish... You gotta know something and being alone and not knowing the language... ergh.... would be a little tough....

If anywhere go to Osaka or where ever to Navy guys are at like Okinawa... Some zilvia members are there so that would awesome...

Well I am there in Dec for Xmas and new years, you can meet me there lol!

Yah if you have boat load of money just go to a language school there... Lol

otherwise, do the JET Program if you are over 18. They pay for your housing and you learn Japanese while you teach english to High School Students or Adult College students.... Only catch, you don't have any choice to WHERE you go teach. So you can be in the boonies like Gunma or something but you will be drifting everywhere lol

You can come meet some of my GF's friends... Some are pretty cute actually and there are hot girls everywhere there who like Americans, too fucking bad they don't speak a word of english lol.... Also fucking gf's friends are rich out of fucking hell and a little snobby sometimes... I don't really like that.... OH wellz... Shigoto, Shigoto...

Anyways, I had a blast when I went there myself hahaha on year... Broke up with another girlfriend and just wanted to fling... Girls just started talking to me in Rappongi... yah yah Rappongi, but still I barely slept for the entire week....

You need a college degree to go into the JET program I think. My cousin did it for 2 years before he found his baller ass job in Ginza. If your currently going to a state college Im sure they have a foreign exchange program which is a lot more affordable than paying to go to a private language school.

Yah that gets old quick.... I actually go there so much I am pretty sick of the place especially Tokyo. Yes they do, but you have to be just in the right areas... If you are American and can speak pretty good japanese, even if you have accent... I promise you mark my Mother F...ing Words...

You are going to get laid if you have some type of game.... Cause they really respect people who try to learn their language and its exotic for them....

Oh yes there is. Cars, Girls and Culture are my basic reasons. For some reason I've been obsessed with learning about other cultures.

This summer I'm going to backpack across Europe. I'm learning Italian and French right now. I'm using the Rosetta Stone program and I'm taking an Italian 101 class at school so I can get the grammar down.

Rosetta Stone teaches you words like your a baby. They give you pictures and you have to guess what they mean or visa versa (They give you words and you have to guess what pictures they go with.) I think its a great way to learn but you can't JUST learn it this way. You have to know that grammar. This program just teaches you words (or at least with what I've seen so far.) Watch some shows and talk on some forums online that are based on the language you're learning and you'll be good.

{EDIT}
I decided. If traveling through Europe is fun I am going to Japan next December.

him (5:10:54 PM): learn japanese

I think I have the same 5 cd set you do. Rosetta stone is very anoying to setup IMO. Stick with repeating.

Even when you are driving around, say phrases over and over again. We all learn by doing.

I talk to my girlfriend with phrases in Japanese in general lol... But I need to string those words togehter... The hardest part.... Sound so stupid cause in conversational Japanese you drop a LOT of subjects and prepositions and the sentence is modified on the fly in context and tones.... Its not easy to speak fluent.... It is the most insy outsy sort of culture....

I have wanted to learn Japanese too but the key to retaining what you have learned is to speak to people to get down basic conversation and flow. If you're not using it you just forget it. I had the CD's and a couple books but didn't get really far. I do want to go to Japan maybe next year so I need to dust off those cd's lol. There is a Japanese strip mall near where I live. I go there to get the baller Option magazines. I was thinking I would ask the shop owner if I could come in every now and then and practice what I've learned and to actually hear it from a native speaker. Maybe you have a Japanese spot around where you live? If you're going to buy the Rosetta Stone stuff just make sure you're dedicated enough to follow through. That would suck ass to pay $500 plus for the set and then don't do anything with it. That's car part money!!! lol I also thought of going to Berlitz Language school. I figured that being in a class verus being at home would motivate even more.
