Japanese is coming.... slowly. I found a great game on the internet that helps you learn to read kanji and kana. I have learned to read all kana this week with about 60 kanji. It hasn't been a week yet even so i think its great. speaking is slowly progressing to one word sentances, not quite though. I still have to throw in a lot of english to say anything useful. I think in a month i'll have one word sentances down, I'm feeling optimistic.
