    As Sonya_Forest suggested, there are a lot of online resources for dictionaries and the like. If you have an iphone/ipad/ipod, check out either Kotoba or Japanese, two wonderful apps that helped me tremendously when I was in Japan. Also if you use Mozilla Firefox, get the Rikaichan add on. When activated, all you have to do is highlight any Japanese word and it comes up with a box that shows it's meaning and other helpful info. Hope that helps!

    Yes

    くるま - a car
    あした - tomorrow
    おすし - sushi
    たべる - to eat
    わからない - I don't understand (I guess)

    lol I'm a begginer too. @_@

    You can use online dictionary, if you don't have "book".
