Japanese Study Resources

I wanted to post some study resources for those who need some extra study material.

Skritter
http://www.skritter.c...­
-Website for studying Kanji by writing it on a tablet. Android users with Gingerbread 2.3 and above can enjoy with their phone and flash support. iPhone users will be able to use the service when the Skritter app is complete. Price: One week free, $5 a month until 12/2011. Price increases to $10 after 01/2012

NicoNico
http//nicovideo.jp
It's like youtube, but Japanese, and better. Price: Free to sign up. 500 yen a month for premium service (better stream quality and other services).

Hiragana Times
http://hiraganatimes....­
Japanese magazine made for foreigners. All the articles have hiragana included, plus English translation of articles. Cost: 6000 yen a year ($80) for digital subscription, a lot more for print.

Lang-8
http://lang-8.com/...­
100% Free service to write articles in a language that you're learning (in our case, Japanese). You write, other's will correct your articles. You do the same for others who are learning English. Great service. You can see my Lang-8 account here: ----> http://lang-8.com/280...­

Okay, that's about it for now. If anyone wants to add anything, feel free to. I notice our group is getting bigger, so I wanted to offer more information to others who wish to advance their language skills.
