Chinese seems even harder. Do you speak Mandarin Chinese as well?

I think I am doing a very good job in the month or so I have been dedicated to learning Japanese again.

That is awesome. I have serious respect for people who can master multiple languages.

DCR, through what method are you trying to learn Japenese? Rosetta Stone, classes?

Second level at Thunderbird starts on Tuesday and I can't wait. I'm progressing, but I still have a long way to go! Going to try it out in Russia in April.

How's your Russian?

Lets see. I have a Rosetta Stone software that I don't like so far to be honest. Which is surprising, I thought it would really work for me.

I am using audio books that I listen to. I'm also using the Internets as a great tool. Watching videos, downloading practice sheets, etc. So far I have mastered the Hiragana alphabet, learning the Katakana one. (What kind of language has 2 freaking alphabets?) Haven't really begun Kanji yet.

I also have My Japanese Coach for the Nintendo DS. It is actually a pretty cool and fun way to try and learn a language. It uses the microphone and records you speaking, giving you a chance to mimic the voice in the game.

I think I might take a class at Mesa Community College next year.

Thanks for the tip on the video game. That sounds like a lot of fun.

I took the online MCC Japanese class a few years ago just to see what it was like. If you sign up, let me know and if they are using the same books, I will give you mine.

Awesome.

There are some pretty big flaws in the game (like getting the stroke order on some of the sounds wrong) but overall it is fun. I play it for 5-10 minutes before bed.

It is a struggle for sure. It really is very difficult to learn a foreign language, especially one so different to English.
