Studying the Japanese Language

Introductory post:
My boyfriend can speak Japanese so i want to learn, too. I'm gathering all of his English-Japanese books to get started! Actually, I've been studying for a week now and I have learned a lot.

Here are my reference books:
*Easy Way to Learn Japanese with Filipino Text
Prof. M. Honda
*Learn to Speak Nippongo the Easy Way
A Self-help study book by Bernardo Canilang
*Basic Japanese-English Dictionary
Bonjinsha Oxford
*New English-Japanese Dictionary
Cyrus Publishing, Inc.

I'm also listening to Japanese vocabulary audio book from his cousin. While I'm starting to learn Nihonggo, my boyfriend is having a refresher course. I must say he's intermediate in terms of writing and speaking Japanese while his aunt (Tita Celia) is an expert since she can fluently communicate in pure Japanese. They converse in Japanese through Facebook and I am learning from them. As I watched more anime, I became more familiar with the terms. We are currently watching Mirai Nikki, Bakuman and Fairy Tail. Listening closely to the seiyū (anime voice actors) gives me an idea on how to properly pronounced the words while reading the subtitles helps me understand their conversation. 

I'm not checking some online resources yet but I'll do so once I've learned enough from these books. I know that there are lots of websites and blogs that can help me learn the Japanese language. I created this blog to track my progress and to share what I'm learning each day. I am also planning to make this a Japanese journal once I'm all good.

Let's learn the Japanese language together!
