Hi all!

Would you happen to know some good on-line course in Japanese? I have studied the language 5 years in the University but 2 years have passed and I don't remember anything. I am Bulgarian but I had to move to Italy and I dedicated the last 1 year to the Italian language...I must admit: I don't remember anything..
I have decided to start studying Japanese as soon as possible:)
Any help will be highly appreciated!

Best wishes,

And don't worry about not remembering anything: it is a frightening experience not to be able to read your own handwritten notes, isn't it? But it'll be easy to brush up your knowledge, believe me.

Hi, Yuliyana!

Here are some online materials and courses:

1. - This website offers you a complete course of elementary Japanese.

2. - Japanese Language "Nihongo Web" is an interactive, online Japanese language and culture program from The University of Alabama. Nihongo Web is available for high school and/or college credit! Speak weekly with native Japanese tutors, and test your Japanese skills with the interactive games and quizzes.

3. - Yomiuri News Stream (
This is Yomiuri's own site. You can also listen using Real Player.
- FNN Headlines (
Most of these stories have the full text included, though for a beginner it might be premature to bother with trying to work through a large written passage.
