Nope, never tried it. I learned most of what I know from the level one books of "Minna No Nihongo" (consists of a workbook, notes book, and kanji book per skill level) and conversing with penpals over the years.

I'm trying to go down the self teaching route. I've been looking around for a while and I don't know where to start. If someone could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful :). I'm also on a relatively small budget haha.

- First learn about how the Japanese language works. A good place to start:
http://en.wikipedia....panese_language

- Use Romaji sparingly, it's a bad crutch for us and not used much in Japan. Just use it to help yourself memorize Hiragana/Katakana pronunciation.

- Memorize Hiragana and Katakana (the phonetic bits of written Japanese), and try to practice writing them on paper.

- Attempt to memorize some basic Kanji and learn about how it fits into the language.

- Learn about particles, how to form verbs, and basic sentence structure.

- Install Japanese fonts/input method so you can read and write Japanese on your computer. Figure out how to type Japanese (hint: You type phonetically on your keyboard in romaji, on the screen you see hiragana as you type, pressing the space-bar allows you to select different kanji/hiragana/katakana form what you typed phonetically from a dropdown list)... at least that's how it works in Windows and Linux.

- Consider using Firefox browser/Rikaichan plugin so you can have an easy time understanding Japanese websites. I'm sure there are some websites around where you can find penpals and/or practice language exchange with Japanese people.
