Hi! Help Request! Anyone here speak Japanese?
Hi, I'm learning Japanese from English and I would like some advice. Also, if anyone is fluent in Japanese, I'd appreciate someone being willing to have conversations with me in Japanese as I get more advanced. I'm at the very beginning of learning Hiragana, and I'd love any advice anyone has. Thanks, and happy learning! -Lady Juliette LaMagie.

more listen a type song in its native language and then transpose it to the Japanese our voce understands what you are listening type I listen a music in Portuguese and then I pass it to English I understand everything but have to listen more than once the same because it does not work
I recommend using Tinycards, first for hiragana, then katakana, and finally kanji, as Arachnje recommends (above). Do several go-arounds EACH, and then review regularly.
In addition, I get some index cards (or blank business cards) and make my own flash cards, especially for those that I find hard to remember, and take them with me, so I can review them when I have a spare minute here and there.
This is different from doing it on the phone - the physical act of writing, and handling the cards, and looking at the physical paper copy adds a layer to the memorization process.
In fact, with really hard words, I use a long strip of paper, and after I review each word, I write it on that paper for extra reinforcement (i.e., the physical act of writing) and of course, I also say the word. And then I fold it over, so there's a new blank area at the top. Good luck.
