And this site teaches Hiragana script, while this one teaches Katakana (the most widespread Japanese syllabary).

This is cool. Want to learn the Japanese alphabet (well, one of them)? Kana Flashcards will display a random hiragana character, along with its English equivalent. Just keep clicking “Next card” to get another random card, and study the letters.

This strikes me as the sort of thing that could easily become a once-a-day habit, and before you know it, you can at least read another language. Understanding it is quite another job, though.

The site also contains an intriguing list of good French comics.
