i learned japanese through the aid of manga and anime-thats why i could say things like "your excellency! we are about to attack the enemy on the left flank" before i could converse properly, i knew words like pope (窶邸窶ーツ、) eunuch (窶コツ??ツッ) or submarine (ツ静カツ絶?ヲナ?テ?before i could speak a coherent sentence...so it has its disadvantages as well as you can see...

btw did i tell you how i learned english through rap songs?-well i guess thats to be disclosed at a different forum though...

lol! you sure learn languages weirdly! ^_~ haha, just jk! That's pretty interesting though. And welcome to the boards! I'm kinda a newbie myself. =D
jigen, how did you lear from your mangas? did you just pick one up and a dictionary and start to translate it?
yo what up- Carolgirl00..

you know, i was speaking in quite a general fashion-of course i took an academic language course as well-but that alone takes you(well at least me) nowhere-the first thing i want to do when learning a language is to be able to talk-

so i learn languges best 1)through ppl- i befriended some patient japanese and got on their nerves w my unrefined skills and 2)through interests- i just liked the manga drawing style- plus once i was able to at least read the two alphabets i could read=pronounce all the words(furigana) and learned some kanji, too...

my recommendations for beginners are these( but that doesnt mean that even native speakers wouldnt enjoy them,too):dragonball(the manga):nice drawing and a story thats entertaining and easy to follow..., and maison ikkoku (the anime-series) much fun, and great for learning the normal everyday phrases and the polite greetings etc ,and where to use (and misuse and also ab-use) them...

i never took a dictionary and started to translate it properly but i eventually looked up the recurring kanji or phrases-and translated only those sentences or passages vital to the story or those that seemed of special interest to me (sometimes i was motivated by those japanese friends i had-namely by the urge to shock them w idiotic or strange expressions (see above)...

of course this was only my method-everybodys a different type-eg i now really envy ppl who can read the kanbun texts and know a great deal about the arts religion and mythology-but im getting there cause interests shift and so have mine...
