I've been trying to learn Japanese in my spare time for quite a while now, and I'm really anxious to dedicate myself to mastering the language. I have a few books here and there, but I was wondering if there are any really good books/software programs to help me learn Japanese? I don't have the money for Rosetta Stone, or anything like that. Is there anything that I can get for a decent price?

they are right. try those they are suggesting. its not only by reading books you could learn japanese language. try watching animes and japanese movies. listen to japanese songs or read manga comics. you could learn something from it and at the same time you enjoy

byki.com has a very good program available free to download. You can use it to practice vocabulary and it will play audio files so you can hear how each words are pronounced.
