I started learning Japanese two weeks ago. I wish I could say that I was progressing very fast, but there still isn't much to progress with. We're still working on passive listening and shadowing, but have added doing a few things in an SRS, or spaced repetition system, called SuRuSu. I've actually worked ahead a little bit and added the first six kanji to it. These are some of the easier kanji, the numbers one through six.
I've also been looking for media to expose myself to more Japanese. I've found a few podcasts I enjoy. I also just ordered Blues Brothers in Japanese. I'd like to find more movies, but they tend to be fairly expensive. I checked into buying a book from Amazon's Japanese site, but the $10 book had a $50 shipping charge. I can use White Rabbit Express for shipping, but it still adds up; a movie in Japanese might cost twice as much as its English version.
Otherwise, things are going well. I expect more with kanji over the next week. I'll try to have a non-Japanese post out before then.
