Wow, Daily 5th. I want to get more great content out to you guys asap but I'm postponing further flashing until I get a Wacom tablet. I want all of my submissions to be quality submissions so no longer shall I struggle with a mouse and bad art. I plan to make the purchase soon.
Finally, it's done!!! I kinda got a little careless recently though because I wanted it to just be finished so there isn't as much creativity in some of the sections. But tell me if you like it and if you wanna go on to lesson two. This is for those who think learning Japanese would be cool, but don't have the money or proper resources to learn it. Or if you just don't like reading everything out of a boring book. I'm trying to make the process a little more interesting so that people can be a little smarter a little easier. ^_^ I hope I didn't forget anything.
Update: I'm terribly ashamed of this flash. It's just soo bad. I put a decent amount of effort into it but I put some stupid mistakes in too. Anyone who already knows Japanese is probably yelling at the computer screen for the bad mistakes. At the beginning I say "..Caleb kun desu..." which is completely impolite and wrong. There are a few other issues with it but that's the worst. I definately want to restart this Japanese flash concept from the very beginning instead of continuing from this one.

i've been learning Japanese for quite a while now, and I haven't practiced for a few months, so I kinda forgot a lot. This helped me pick up the basics ^^

One mistake, though: you treat 'desu' as a verb. It may look like a verb, and even share some verbal forms, but in Japanese, desu is not a verb. It's more like a particle to either make a sentence polite or -as has been said- to express 'to be'. It has more uses, but i kinda forgot those, too ^^"

For the rest, great to learn the basics, or practice them. Make lesson 2 ^^

Cayler responds:

Thanx for the review and I will try to make lesson 2 as soon as possible. As for the desu not actually being a verb, thanx for telling me that because I'm self taught so some of my info easily can be wrong. I think I will end up learning more Japanese from reviews than the people will who use the lesson. lol

wow nice...

Starting in September, thanks to a persistent friend of mine, a group of us are allowed to start doing Japanese at school. This will definately get me familiar with the basics of he, she, they etc. and I found it pretty useful. I did get a book on Japanese and I think if you had done he, she, they etc. and greetings in the first lesson, like in this book, rather than the random bit on animals then that might have worked a little better.

Still a great help nonetheless and I think it will be useful for a lot of people. Great work.

Humours 2 cosve the pooping cow :D

This has been wanted for centuries by people.
An interactive learn Japanese program, finally!

I've been wanting to learn Japanese for a while now and haven't had the chance because of leaving my school club of it last year (We hardly learned any language, it was all about their way of life really.)

I've learned a bit now so bring on the next lot!

I believe there were a couple of simple corrections:
Grammar instead of Grammer
Also when I wanted to concentrate on the final part, I turned the music off but it didn't turn back on, don't know if it's just me...

Anyhoo, good work!

Cayler responds:

Yeah, I think I got the word 'grammar' wrong on my spelling tests in school. lol And about the music, I'm still a noob when it comes to flash because I haven't been working with it for long so I didn't know how to turn the music back on once it's been stopped. lol

This helps me out a lot!

I want to learn Japanese for some time now, but the free sites suck and i didn't have the money to learn it properly. Just one question: i read on a site that there are different ways of counting depending on what type of item you want to count. is that true?

Cayler responds:

Yes, that's true. I'm gonna include that in the second lesson. Most of the numbers stay the same, but shi(4) becomes yon and shichi(7) becomes nana and kyu(9) becomes ku.
