I would like to add other words use for the english term "I" and "you". "I" equivalent japanese word are watashi, atashi(female), boku(male), ore. "YOU" equivalent are anata, kimi, omae. To devi..., the one who wants to learn Japanese. This is the sample of different Japanese word for a one(1) particular english word. This basic is very important in daily conversation with Japanese here in Japan because you might hear this term and you won't get confuse. I would like to make a correction on the word "they", its equivalent is "KARERA" instead of "KARERU". Hope this discussion will push through because it is quite fun and I am also in the learning process and this discussion would be of great help. Thanks jackf501 for starting this kind of thread.

I am working in a care home ,and one of my elderly residents is japanese. She used to speak english, but b/c of her dementia, she has forgoten how to speak english. She has reverted to only speaking japanese, and none of us can understand her. Your info will be helpful if I can learn a few phrases at least, Thanks!!

dementia is a disease of the mind, usually, but not always elderly people get it. What I mean by this, is that it can start early as 40-45 years of age, but not as common as 60+. More commonly known as alzheimers.

i'd say go with rosetta stone. they use the vocabulary you're learning in context so it'll help you when it comes time to converse with a native speaker. plus, it's pretty thorough, and allows you to focus on any issues that are giving you trouble. it's a quick learn too. good luck with whatever program/system you choose. japanese isn't the easiest. i'm impressed
