While I’m at it, here’s a couple of things I find useful for Japanese learning
- Japanese Class | Really good for building up your vocab and kanji. I use this one every day.
- jslvideodayo | Video tutorials on Japanese sign language. Pretty simple, pretty useful.
- Japanese.about.com | I haven’t used this one much, but it seems to have decently in-depth lessons and some details on grammar.
- Mango Languages | This site isn’t really limited to Japanese and it’s not free unless your local library is signed up (There’s a location finder on the site), but I’m putting it on this list because it’s an actual step-by-step program and for some people that’s a must have.
