Tae Kims Blog (jp)
http://www.guidetojapanese.org/blog/
Tae Kimís Blog : Japanese, Chinese, and a dash of Korean
She writes instructive articles for the beginner, intermediate and advanced level learners of Japanese
This blog originally used to be at nihongo.3yen.com and I moved the content to my own blog
The original blog was for people learning Japanese but I have a bit more flexibility now and will write my thoughts on learning Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. The focus will still be on useful information for those learning Japanese while posts about Chinese and Korean will be more from a learnerís point of view since thatís what I am. (Not to say that Iím not still learning Japanese.)

Kanji Steps
http://www.kanjistep.com/en/online/hiraganasteps/index.html
On Kanji Step's pages you can find loads of materials to practice your knowledge skills in Hiragana and Katakana.
It is advised that learning Katakana prior to Hiragana may be more useful in some circumstances. Thus, we suggest you start with Katakana first. Also, for the Hiragana Reading Test on this site, you are expected to have a knowledge of Katakana.

Nicovideo
http://www.nicovideo.jp
This website is in Japanese but you can use one of the translation websites to change to English (I like Babelfish myself) but almost impossible to navigate around unless you read Japanese
This is a video hosting site ... just upload your videos 'Youtube-style" ... the magic is that you are able to add chat over the uploaded video.
Imagine working with a group of language students ... then this could be a very powerful tool, asking them to translate in chat over the video.
I'm hoping there will be an English version one day.

And if you're a teacher, please visit our Japanese Teaching resources page, to get in touch with associations and other sites built specially for you.
