Have you checked out Duolingo's Japanese course yet?

I used it a bit a while ago.  It doesn't have a huge amount. 
It's pretty good for an intro, but it doesn't have much beyond that. 

I have been reading a lot about resources. 
The Japanese N5 test is basically covered by Duolingo.  Roughly the same level as using Genki I (I think a little less in Kanji).  I'm towards the end of Genki I. 

Then Genki II basically covers the N4 test.  I already have this book.

Apparently Korean is coming to Duolingo.  
I don't know if anyone is interested...

Would be fun/easy to learn. The writing system was constructed to be simple.

Easyish.  Still supposed to be one of the most time consuming language for English speakers to learn.
Learning Japanese is making me interested to learn other stuff. 

But progress is slow right now.  :(

Been slacking a lot.  Haven't even looked at anything the past few days at all.  :(
Very far away from making my goals.  Didn't even do half. :(

Hey, just remember, if you ever want to practise just hit me up with a PM on Discord =) I almost never check this site out though, so I probably won't know if you attempt to contact me here.

I'm wanting to learn my conlang. It would be fun to become fluent in a language that no one speaks.

Cool chart that shows how a lot of the kana developed form Kanji.

Chile to be the first American country to ban plastic bags in coastal cities : worldnews

I didn't know this but "America" in English and "America" in Spanish are not 1 to 1 translations. In Spanish North and South America are a single continent and all parts are considered american. When referring to US things, they don't use american.

Lots of people seem to have issues with this and project their understanding into the other language  :P
