    All these sites listed are great but I want to add one more teacher to the list! This youtube teacher has some excellent video lessons! She is easy to understand and provides detailed but easy to follow lessons. I have learned more from her in two months than I did taking a Japanese class (which cost me 500 bucks! grr)..anyways I recommend her to anyone looking to learn some Japanese.
