Blabbering: Too many userpics go Midori no L! BLA attack!  

With a generous gift from [ profile] densha_onna *cough cough* I`ve received another 12 months of a paid account + 100 userpics extra XD

And what scares me the most is that I didn´t have the slightest problem to fill all the free usperics slots at once (^^;) .... ahem~
Well, anyway, I´m happy with it

Death not goes Midori no Hibi XD )

The way lazy ME reads her doujinshis XD )

Well, as you can see my main problem is still ... KANJI! (T___T)
And lately I´ve been VERY lazy with my Japanese studies ... basically I haven´t done anything at all.
But now I´ve started to use this program, to at least train my kanji (and vocabulary) knowledge from time to time. (Yes, yes repeating the JLPT4 and 3 stuff XD)
I haven´t used if for a long time, but it´s quite good:

That´s all for today! (^^;)

[Project]: Japanese Language: Tools, sites, help, etc. !!  
Hi everyone !

I´ve decided to work on an overview over materials, internet sites and programs/tools for the Japanese language.
I hope it´s helpful in some way !
First of all: I myself am a beginner. I´m NOT good at Japanese at all ! That´s why I have to depend on all these programs and stuff.
But most of the programs I want to review here are also a help for people that are already pretty good at Japanese.
And another thing: I´m German, so my English isn´t perfect ! Some of the screenshots show only German words, not English, but almost ALL of the programs are for a lot of European languages, not only English or German ! (there are also French-Japanese, Spanish-Japanese dictionaries and with them the programs work just fine !!)

(Warning: Image heavy !!) -> Read more... )

<~ that´s just an example ! :) (konnichiha means "Good day / Hello")
