A new challenge: learning Japanese

This should be fun; I got a Japanese course in Italian for Christmas. I had a look during my vacation but I did not apply myself so I never got past the section with the hiragana and katakana symbols.

Learning a 4th generation language (Norwegian -> English -> Italian -> Japanese :-) should keep me busy for a while. I have forgotten most of the other languages I know like German as I never had a chance to practice. A lot of the latest and greatest cool stuff is in Japanese  though, so I should have plenty of exercise reading Japanese once I get over the first hurdles.

Kuro5hin has some interesting pointers on learning languages but I am open for suggestions and practice opportunities.
