Flash cards were the easiest way for me to learn hiragana, programs are very useful but I havn't used any

Rosetta stone is kinda like a shortcut i think and its easy to forget what you've learned from that

I find chinese to be more difficult then Japanese XD

And being chinese has nothing to do with it I think, unless your parents speak chinese all the time, but then you don't need to learn, since you already know most :]

But yeah, Chinese have some much advantage for understanding Kanji, although they might have more difficulty actually reading the kanji in Japanese, since the pronouncation is just completely different :]
You are here alone again
In your sweet insanity
All too calm, you hide yourself from reality
Do you call it solitude? Do you call it liberty?
When all the world turns away to leave you lonely

onyomi is generally almost identical plus it does wonders for reading comprehension. but yeah, pronounciation rules in japanese are so random >.>
