Greetings from /v/

I've decided to begin learning Japanese since I want to get into the video game industry, and have gotten a copy of Rosetta Stone. However, I'm not entirely sure how to go about in learning the lessons. There are many different tabs, but each one takes a significant amount of time, so I'm wondering if they are just for review.

Google has failed me. Does anyone have experience with it?

That, or you can go to classes with a certified, natural, japanese teacher. It will be hundreds of times faster.

Rosetta Stone is good to learn the Kanji, but you will forget them really fast if you don't practice with others.

Why do you ask for help with learning Japanese on this of all boards? Any /jp/edo interested in learning it is either
a) successful in it, therefore hanging out at 2ch or so and not here anymore, or
b) still browsing /jp/ because he fails hard at Japanese and can thus only give you advice on how to fail as well

Drop Rosetta Stone (it's horrible) and follow this guide instead:

First step - Learn the kana (hiragana + katakana):
Should be easy, not more than a normal study day for each at most, so it's just to get right to it. If you're into mnemonics, get Remembering the Kana (/rs/), or if you prefer more direct memorization, use http://www.realkana.com/.

Second step - Kanji:
This process will take a while, so continue on to the next steps while working on this, but it is essential if you want any written vocabulary, so please do work on it diligently. Again, if you like mnemonics, get Remembering the Kanji (/rs/), or if you prefer direct memorization, ReadWrite Kanji (/rs/) is good. If you decide to go for RtK, pay http://kanji.koohii.com/index.php a visit. There are different opinions on what exactly you need to learn with each kanji (how many meanings and readings, etc), so you'll have to decide for yourself. Just keep in mind that they work as building blocks in vocabulary, so as long as you can recognize them, you will make the most important use of them in the next step. Also, I've found that learning the stroke order helps a lot in remembering them.

>> No.2131700

>>2131694
Third step - Vocabulary:
Also feel free to work on step #4 while doing this one. The exact approach is freer here, but most people usually start with the vocabulary lists from a workbook, like Genki (/rs/). And when you start reading, it's recommended to pick out words you don't understand and feel that you should understand, and make your own vocabulary lists. With vocabulary lists, your options are pretty much to either read through the lists until you feel you remember it, or use flashcard software, like Teach2000 or Anki (google).

Fourth step - Grammar:
I'll keep this one simple, http://www.guidetojapanese.org/ or Genki (/rs/).

You also might want to pay http://www.alljapaneseallthetime.com/ a visit, for some more advanced tips.

I got Rosetta Stone for Russian last summer, but it was very ineffective at first.
Then I started to actually start my Russian classes, and so far the combination has been solid.
Rosetta Stone is great for MAINTAINING knowledge in a language.
You're gonna need social interaction if you want to learn one.
Not sure how it works with japanese but I would imagine it would be similar.
