    Seriously, if you want people to give you advice at least make it look like you put some effort into your messages.

    As for learning Japanese, here is how I did it:

    1. Work through "Remembering the Kanji" by James Heisig. Use a program called anki to review and get the deck.
    2. Download the core vocabulary decks via anki and cover all grammar with Tae Kim's guide.
    3. After you have 1000-2000 words memorized start reading really basic VNs (nukige tier).
    4. Add new and useful words to your own, self-made anki deck
    5. Profit

    After that just immerse yourself and read a lot of VNs, watch anime/drama's and you'll improve naturally. It will take an awfully long time and a lot of effort. If you're not the type that can obsess over something you're probably better off not trying.
    first of all thanks for you advise but i wanna tell you that i have my english grammer and spelling are 100% mastered its just that because here at the site and all i write quickly and some time dont even check it so that would the reason
    and when i wanted to learn Japanese i knew it would be hard and harder on my own but i posted for advise since I'm serious but your post is help full so thank you

    but may i ask which deck should i use ???

    Re: japanese learning steps

    Like pingtoryan, I learn Japanese formally, and if it is vocabulary that you want to expand (kanji and all that) then the best way is to read... For starters I found that looking at song lyrics in Japanese and then in English, and picking up one or two words while watching anime helps. A dictionary on a touchscreen device might help (so you can write out the characters instead of searching for them by strokes in a print version) too. Good luck with your college exams and in learning Japanese!

    Re: japanese learning steps

    I'm glad that you are interested in Japanese.
    To tell the truth, there are many kanji that even native japanese child can't read it. Don't worry. We learn kanji used in novels and magazines about 12 years at school.
    The first what you shoud do is learning hiragana and katakana completely(the pronouncings are important too). When you could do that, you can learn kanji by using textbook used in Japan.

    Re: japanese learning steps

    My teacher also told me that when learning new languages (2nd language, 3rd language, etc.) we tend to make links with our first language so that may be of help as well. Just saying.

    Re: japanese learning steps

    You can link with whatever language that works with you! For me, I link with both English and Chinese - English being my first language and Chinese because of similar characters. I guess it is about imagery and about what helps in remembering the words... Anything that helps would work!

    (Wow, 4 languages... is it difficult managing between the 4? I sometimes confuse my Chinese with my Japanese because of the similar characters )
