I just found out that in just a couple of months we are going to be moving to Japan for my dad's work. I don't know anything about Japan or Japanese but suddenly I am going to be living there and going to school there so I am kind of terrified haha. Anyway, I was wondering if you could recommend good books/websites/iPad apps for a beginner to start to learn Japanese? I will be taking it as a language in school but I want to start practicing early so that when I get there I will at least know something.
Also, not related to language, but does anybody know of any websites about life in Japan in general? I keep finding things for my dad/business people but nothing for high school students...
Thanks for your help.
Thank you so much everyone for your help and comments/suggestions, I have so many things to learn from now! You are all really nice. Thank you again!
