I'm new here, where exacty do I begin my pursuit into a new language?

I'm not seeking out strict tutoring per se, since this in in many ways a hobby of mine. I'm trying to find forums, multiple person interaction, groups or the like to informally learn a new language, preferrably Japanese, German (and perhaps Mandarin or Chinese). What exactly do I do?

Many thanks.
