How did you start learning Japanese?

How did you start learning Japanese?

In my case I started by learning hiragana and katakana first, then moved to memorizing basic vocabulary and getting my ear accustomed to the language, after that I started learning kanji and some grammar.

What is your method?

I unofficially started by listening to Jpop/watching Jdramas & Japanese TV shows xD That helped me learn some vocabulary and pronunciation.

But my method is similar to yours -- I learned hiragana first, then katakana, then basic 'foundation' grammar rules and vocabulary, then basic Kanjis, intermediate Kanji, Keigo, and more Kanji  :tongue:

In my case, I started listening to JPod101's podcast. This was I think late 2008. It was really helpful as their dialogs indeed illustrate realistic scenarios in Japan. After few months I enrolled in a class and pretty much did the same as you guys did.  :smile:
