(For those reading who don't know Japanese: Thanks for the mail - your Jpaanese is very good. I was surprised there are people in France learning Japanese. If you get the opportunity please visit Japan. Do you have much opportunity to speak Japanese in France?)

Kon'ban'wa! ;D Je parle français, un de mes langues natales, et aussi, j'ai commençais à apprendre le japonais. Ce n'est pas parfait, mais watashi-wa nihon'-go de wakarimasu. ;)

Regards,
Arianwen

Average of French don't know about Japan, but foretunately there is in my town a university of Japan.I was so happy and surprised!That's where I started learning japanese.

Sometimes it looks difficult, but "I'll continue" I wanna speak japanese well.

Georgiy, how did you learn japanese?

How did I learn Japanese? To be honest, I don't really know - I never thought of learning it as 'learning' per se, in many ways it was more like 'remembering' something I already knew. However, i think that what it really is is an innate linguistic ability, partially related to singing/musical ability. I have no foreign accent in Jpaanese - on the telephone people have been surprised to find I am not in fact Japanese. Same with my Russian - a Russian aquaintance at work said to another colleague who asked about my Russian that I have no foreign accent when I speak in Russian.

I started Japanese at school when I was 13. I had visited Japan the year before, so had already heard how the language sounded, which I think may have given me some benefit. We just used the normal textbook of the day, maybe a bit colourless and dry by today's standards, but it was very good - it was kind of situation-based, and taught key patterns, which once locked into your brain you could interchange with any other vocabulary you knew, so it was really like the construction of a building - with solid basement and inner structure, and over the years I 've refined the fittings.

I was a very quick learner, and did my final high-school Japanese before I finished high-school. Then I went to school in Jpaan for a year. Back home I continued my Japanese at University, trained as a (high school) Japanese teacher, and then went back to Japan and worked at middle-schools teaching English for 5 years.

I don't know of any special method or technique I used to help me learn, but i think I just had the right attitude in that I never doubted that after studying I wouldn't be able to speak it. I do think however the Jpanese section of my brain is completely seperate from the English part of my brain, - I find it quite difficult to switch between the two. If I am thinking in Japanese, and someone said something to me in English, it takes a while for me to register what they have said. Written translation is no problem for me, but I don't like spoken translation!
