I added three vocab lists for Megumi-sensei's lessons.

Oh, thanks for this. I missed out on Japanese 101. I wanted to enroll in it last semester but I was too late--slots were full by then. XD

I just came across that - how do you say "in [a language]" in Japanese?

E.g. "I write a sentence in Japanese" - boku-wa bun-o nihongo-__ kakimasu

What do I put after "nihongo"? De? Ni? Or -o, too?
If  ;), :D, ;D, ::), :P, :-X, :o or >:D are attached, that paragraph may not be 100% serious. Seriously.

I'd say o, but I'm not a specialist so don't take my word for it.

I found out a way to add a japanese keyboard to my laptop, so in case anyone is interested I can help figuring that out.

I asked my teacher today, apparently it's "de". Now we know! :P

aah, I can see why.

Also, does that mean you're interested in a japanese keyboard?

Nah, I just use the Windows write-in-romaji-thingy. 日本語でかけます。 :D
I just think romaji are easier, cause then I don't have to switch to kana and back all the time :P

Beginner here, just recently I found an interest in learning Japanese.

I've been studying the Hiragana on realkana.com/hiragana and eventually the katakana.

Do you guys have any advice on how to continue my study? I saw mention of the "Japanese for Busy People" and I've also heard of a book called "Genki" that's supposed to be helpful. Any specific recommendations or helpful tips from previous beginners?

Also amazon seems to have good reviews for the series, "Japanese from Zero!"

Anybody have experience with these books? Thanks in advance!

I'm using wanikani to study kanji, which is a pretty useful website, only you have to pay for access.
I've not used many other things, but genki is apparently pretty good.
