I have tried all kinds of ways to learn Japanese, between shuffling through flash cards and going to language schools. I can assure you that motivation and interest is the most effective source to learning a new language. I once plowed through page after page of textbook, only to find myself burned out and discouraged by my lack of progress. Later, I began experimenting with materials that I love and enjoy. Every day I learn more and get better from my favourite television shows, games, and novels. It's all about immersing yourself in the language and getting the most out of what you read and watch!
