hana-san, konnichiwa! As a beginner, I would recommend just following the conversational tracks supplied in the course, and the look at the corresponding grammar and culture lessons. You'll find yourself learning lots really fast. Hope this helps, Pascal.

Konnichiwa! Pascal-san is right. All the courses here which include audio + written language are very useful, not to mention the grammar, culture and writing courses. The way the Rocket Japanese teaches you here is amazingly simple, fun and fast ! This courses have like everything you find on the other sites all combined together, sugoi ! So just as Pascal-san said, start from the very beginning with these courses and follow them with great attention. You should start supplying with Japanese TV and Anime too. At first you won't understand much so use subtitles...but after you start building your vocab you'll understand more and more of what they say :). As an example, I use this site: http://www.animeultima.tv to watch anime. Gambatte ne ! (Give your best !) コッド

Sayaka-san, I wish you could make rocket Japanese free because I never finish the trial and i want to do other lessons plus i am only 12 years old and my family will not buy nothing that cost that much which is sad because i love using Rocket Japanese courses!:) It makes it easier for me too learn.

Keyatta-san, Unfortunately, we cannot make RJ free... but hopefully there are tons of free Japanese-learning material out there that you can use until you are allowed to buy RJ - maybe you can ask for the RJ course for your birthday!! Otherwise - we are always here to encourage you and answer any questions you may have in your Japanese learning journey. Gambatte! -sayaka ;)

Konnichiwa, I have tried to spell 'konnichiwa' that without cheating by copying it! This is my first night of the 6 day free trial and I have already done the first lesson, then the second lesson, then repeated the first lesson. I got 100% for both quizzes! I'm really enjoying this so far, and just came here to say hello. I am hoping to move to Japan to teach English (TEFL) and thought it would be nice to start learning Japanese early whilst I'm still researching my idea. I hope to type more in Japanese on the forum as my skills improve, I learnt that I'm a visual learner (makes sense as I'm a photographer) so the more I type the better! Sayaka-san. I have a question, what does the '-san' bit mean at the end of a name when greeting or addressing? Maybe I missed this explanation in lessons 1.0 and 1.1 or maybe I am yet to learn this.

Andreas it is polite form too people, you always say San after a name, you can use Sama too. Andreas kun=somebody knows you and say this, it is boyish and with friends Andreas San= they are polite and formal Andreas Sama= you are higher then them and they are very polite

@Andreas A Here are some other honorifics for names: Chan= diminutive suffix, expresses an endearing quality the speaker sees in the listener. Sensei= used for teachers, doctors, politicians, etc, people who have some degree of mastery in a field. Senpai= Used to refer to your senior colleagues Shi= used with people you are unfamiliar with, usually through academic journals, newsletters, etc. Variations of honorifrics, used to denote endearment and cuteness, for example are "tan" from "chan" and "chama" from "sama". There are amny more, for example, used in occupation titles and companies, etc, but unfortunately I don't know them.......yet :p Hope this helps! P.S. the kanji for kun, sama, senpai, sensei and shi are 君, 様 , 先輩, 先生 and 氏 respectively. San, chan, tan, chama are written with kana.

Andreas-san, "-san" is equivalent to "Ms." "Mrs." "Mr." in English. "-sama" would be more like "Sir" or "Ma'am" - Sayaka ;)
