    This is a little something I have bookmarked. It's an explanation by Takasugi-sensei about usage of "tte". People keep asking this again and again in #nihongo, so maybe it's useful for e-budo people.

    http://www.sf.airnet.ne.jp/~ts/japan...uDr4o7LuB.html

    And here is software to train nihongo with manga. A demo is available.

    Thanks for the great sites. I was just introduced to a Japanese Grad student. We are going to do a language exchange. Free practice

    Here is one I'm using now. It has lessons on hiragana, kana, kanji. It also has flashcards and the like.

    Default Hiragana Times

    Hi,

    In Japan, Hiraganatimes magazine to help the people from other countries and tourists is published. Web of this magazine may be useful for people learning Japanese.
    Hiragana Times http://www.hiraganatimes.com/index.html

    For example, in this web, there is the corner where the same article is written in standard Japanese, hiragana, Romaji, and English.
    Standard Japanese http://www.hiraganatimes.com/hp/topi...-japanese.html
    Hiragana http://www.hiraganatimes.com/hp/topics/index-j.html
    Romaji http://www.hiraganatimes.com/hp/topics/index.html
    English http://www.hiraganatimes.com/hp/topi...t-english.html

    In NHK (the Japanese Broadcasting Corporation), it broadcasts a program to people learning Japanese. In a homepage of NHK, there is a Japanese learning corner corresponding to 21 languages. NHK World http://www.nhk.or.jp/lesson/index_jp.html

    There are a lot of homepages offering the teaching materials for Japanese leanrer personally. For example. http://www.geocities.jp/sekaijinwp/

    I work in a Japanese branch office of a British company.
    I am the same as all of you about learning another language as a non-native.

    Good luck to all of you.

    I don't mean to be pecky but I can't help myself... Actually you've written "domo rigato" (now twice even). It should be ??も?り??? and if you use UTF-8 it's generally easier to read than Shift-JIS. (First time I post hiragana here though, let's see if it works...)

    Hello Mr Borg,

    Welcome to E-Budo.

    I am the moderator of this forum and it is a rule of the Forum that you sign all your posts with your full name. The easiest way to do this is to add your full name to your signature, which can appear below all your posts. You undertook to keep the name rule when you signed up for E-Budo.

    I can see Carolyn Hall's greetings as 'domo arigato'. However, I cannot read your own Japanese script and I have Japanese language software in my computer. It does not work with any of the text encoding settings I have here.

    Best wishes,
    Peter Goldsbury,

    hehehe, I know I did. For some reason, when I wrote it back then, the あ character wouldn't work for me for some odd reason.
    It kept showing up as a dot every time I tried to make it work.

    それでも、どうもありがとうございました! 

    *れい*

    (I hope I used それでも correctly. I wanted to say, "Well anyway," )

    Hi Goldsbury-san,

    I can read his if I use the Unicode-8 thing, but then I can't read mine. If I use Western(ISO-8859-1), I can read mine but then can't read his. Odd. For some reason, the other Japanese Character encodings don't work on this computer.(Using parent's) Really odd...

    It's a shame computers aren't better "universalized."

    I often have to manually switch my encoding to "Japanese Autoselect" -- even though it is supposedly already in autoselect -- because there isn't enough Japanese text versus English to trigger recognition.

    I also remember once when I posted something in Japanese, and Tony Kehoe said it was partially garbled on his computer even though it looked fine on mine. I ended up resorting to posting a graphic capture of my screen so that he could read it.

    I use MS Windows ME, MS IME 5.0, and MS Internet Explorer 6.0.2800.

    In the control panel for IME 5.0 there are three entry modes that appear to be independently set from the encoding in the View menu of Explorer. Shift-JIS appears to be the default.

    The three settings are:

    JIS、シフトJIS、and 区点。 (Can everyone read those?)

    The first, clearly, is "JIS"; the second is "Shifuto JIS"; and I don't recognize the third. ("Kuten"?)

    On the View/Encoding menu for Explorer I have the choices of "Western European (Windows)," "Western European (ISO)," "Japanese (Shift-JIS)," "Japanese (EUC)," and "Unicode (UTF-8)."

    So in order for the greatest number of people to correctly read what I have written, and for me to correctly read what the greatest number of them have written, what settings should I use?
    Yours in Budo,
    ---Brian---

    BTW, like obg, I see the hiragana in Carolyn's message on page one of this thread as "domo rigato" rather than "domo arigato" when in Shift-JIS encoding, and as garbbled ASCII characters in all other encodings.

    Default I hope this isn't a repeat

    I haven't seen www.kantango.com listed yet. Use it to make your own online flashcard sets and share with others. I love it! (It's not flawless though)

    Default Kanji a day

    This is a cool website:

    http://www.kanji-a-day.com/index.php

    Every day a different kanji is presented. Start with the level 4 (for beginner) before going up to level 1

    Default ooh, one more

    Here's a very handy dictionary server that lets you search by word category (among other cool features), it even has a "martial arts words" category!

    http://linear.mv.com/cgi-bin/j-e/dict

    I find the version with no color a little easier on the eyes..

    Default Another download website for audio-video on martial arts Japanese

    Another website to add to the list below for audio-video designed for martial arts Japanese. It covers Japanese language basics and sentences but uses karate terms and subjects to discuss them. I found the download process for the videos easy and pronunciation uses a native Japanese speaker. Link is:

    http://www.downloadkarate.com/index.asp?Sec_ID=262

    ONe more website with a variety of language and culture is:
