Holtz's theorem: When you attempt to point out a spelling error, you will make an error, unless you are someone pointing out an error in the original error point-out.

Okay buddy, here's the thing. Many people aren't aware of the concept of just.. learning languages. There are many courses available in many different forms that teach you grammar concepts and vocabulary in completely unordered fashion. Even if they seem ordered.

I strongly recommend that you read "How To Learn Any Language" by Barry Farber. This guy learned roughly 25 langauges to the point where he can use them as easily as english(his native tongue) for the most part. It's unlikely that you can fully learn a langauge but this guy can tell you everything to it. Trust me he knows how to learn the amount a college student can learn in 4 years only within 1 year. But it is quite a project.

My understanding of it is that learning a language is like building a pyramid. You simply must start with the very basics and master them. I see someone here said something along the lines of "repetition is the key to learning."

A better way to phrase it is using the word "drilling" rather than "repetition." Please do not confuse the two if you want to be time efficient. Good luck! <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>

Hey thanks for that book suggestion, I'll check Borders for it today. I'm learning Japanese, I did a lot of self-teaching that ended up having to be relearned (that and I had a high school teacher that really didn't have the knowledge required to teach a language). To the initial poster: take a class with a native speaker or somebody FLUENT. Your professor shouldn't have to look up words and the proper inflection/speed should be present. Oh, and second, if ROMhacking is your only reason for wanting to learn Japanese, shut out the window and forget about it .

I got lucky and my highschool offered it. I took 4 years. You may want to consider getting some cds or talking with some japanese people. You may find that if you start off with hiragana or katakana charts your pronounciation will be off. That's how it was for me.
