Hi there folks,

I'm Tiffany, but feel free to call me Tiff - I'm 26, from Tennessee. I have heard about this website for a bit but haven't made the effort to join it until now, and I'm glad I have. I just recently downloaded the app for my XBOX One and figured I'd check out the website as well. It has been pretty awesome already, and I've dove into a few shows already (if you have any suggestions on an amazing story-line, feel free to let me know! I love horror, adventure, romance, the whole shebang lol). I'm actually in the process of trying to learn Japanese (if you have suggestions on that as well, shoot me a comment please!), so I'm hopeful that this may be useful in doing so as well! Welp, pleasure to be here, and hope to make some e-friends!

Have a good day/night!

Welcome. I'm CrossForte, long time viewer and full-time gamer. If you ever need someone to play Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros, Pokémon, Animal Crossing, or Splatoon with, drop me a line. As for the series, it's nothing super amazing, but if you haven't seen it yet, give Squid Girl a view. It's just a cute, fun little series.

Oh wow, responses! Thank you all so much for letting me know what are a few good shows to watch, I'll definitely check them out. Are there any shows that are dubbed by any chance? Or are they primarily closed captioned? I've been trying to search but there doesn't seem to be any that are in English so that may be redundant, but I noticed that there are shows online that are dubbed, but not really on the XBOX.

Howdy. I've had a CR account for years but never posted, so I guess I'm new too. Nice to meetcha.

In terms of learning Japanese, I'd highly recommend picking up both volumes of "Remembering the Kanji" by James Heisig. It'll seem abstract at first, but its method has allowed me to pick up and remember new kanji in a flash.

The Genki series is a pretty good textbook series for learning the basic building blocks. It's designed for a university class environment, but it's easy to make it work for self-study. If you snag any of em, make sure they come with the audio CD.

Tae Kim's Guide to Japanese Grammar is also an awesome resource.

Above all else, practice, practice, PRACTICE! Every day! Whenever you find a spare moment (sitting on the bus, lunch break, etc.) whip out flash cards or practice your writing. Learning Japanese is a serious commitment! Much more so than learning a European language, I find. It can be really daunting, but the reward is well worth it. You might even consider taking the JLPT!

がんばって!

Hi there, pleasure to e-meet you Capt. Nice to e-meet you as well!

I actually just picked up my first 'Living Language Japanese, Complete Edition: Beginner through advanced course, including 3 coursebooks, 9 audio CDs, Japanese reading & writing guide' from Amazon earlier today, so I'm excited at the prospect of learning and being able to understand a bit more Japanese within the shows I watch, among just being able to have a conversation in Japanese. I'll definitely be on the lookout for those books as well, thank you very much for the recommendation!

May I ask what JLPT is? I'm not familiar.

It stands for the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test. To my knowledge, in the USA, it's administered once a year. There are different levels of the test you can take, N5 - N1, with 1 being the hardest. Passing the test awards you with a certificate for that level. I found it to be a nice resume-booster. It definitely helped me get hired.

Oh wow, that's awesome! I had no idea about there being a test or that you could even gain a certificate. I'm in college at the moment for Psychology - Child and Adolescent Development, so any type of certificates or what-not would look great on my resume.. Thank you for that information as well. It makes it all the more appealing that I learn Japanese (and I also bought Spanish, because well, why not!)... I'm so excited to be able to do this. I hope it helps me as it has you, that would be great. My resume needs all the sprucing up it can get! How exciting!

If you'd like audio lessons you can subscribe to Japanese pod 101 .com and download lots of free lessons the first 10 days. i got the first 4 seasons on an mp3 and i try and listen to them when i think about it. but it's free and you can have them send emails with new words every day.
