    Where can we get hold of those shows, gaijin?
    There are torrents available, but check out youtube, veoh, google video, myvideo, dailymotion etc.

    Try the folks at d-addicts and J-Dorama as well. The former has a ton of variety comedy programmes such as Lincoln, Gaki no tsukai, Dotch, London Hearts, etc.

    Found this site by accident, and it has a ton of Japanese vidoes on it. You need to download divX player to get it working.

    http://stage6.divx.com/index

    Quite a few gravure, anime stuff on there as well - so be careful. Don't tell your Japanese teacher you've being learning the language of some 14 year old with big tits.

    Although.....

    Always a winner.

    My script writing is coming on pretty good. I haven't got the time to pratice, but I keep forgetting how to spell stuff in katakana (because its fiendish to remember how they butcher our language.)

    成功を祈るよ。 ^_^

    I will be doing Japanese and Korean at university next year, but I have taken the GCSE and A-level by lessons outside school (a bit like private tutoring, except it wasn't a service I had to pay for) and independent studying, which I started three years ago. However, even just 2 weeks in Japan significantly improved my Japanese, although I have a way to go until I fully master the language! I am so envious of half japanese half english families who are fluent in both!
    ohhh. im half japanese and half english. my language skills are apaaaaaaalling. even my english

    My Japanese teacher (who is Japanese and probably speaks better English then I do) told me its easier to understand my Japanese then it is to understand my English. My irish accent is too thick.

    Dunno. Perhaps if you a have real heavy accent like if you are from Fukui or something... it helps people understand you better.

    Nah, its sort of slightly based on the written art-form like manga etc.

    If you call it Jap your teacher will bite your head off, someone in my class called it Jap class and she wasnt amused.

    Its not that hard and you probably wont do any kanji for a long time. We started by doing the two written forms and learning grammar and some words then were tested on it throughout the year, and had one oral exam.

    I started from scratch aswell, I knew a few things before I went into the class but most didnt.

    Its easier than european languages in my opinion, simple grammar, hardest bit is reading the kanji (characters, they arent spelt), that you dont know.

    Having an A level in Japanese shouldn't give you an advantage or disadvantage in being accepted. Generally having ANY language is an advantage though, so if it's Japanese or a non-language A level, it might be better to have the Japanese. I haven't studied a language in 4 years and they gave me an unconditional so even that's not too big a deal!

    If you have another qualification theyd probably try and put you on a higher level unless you can convince them you dont remember any of it.
