You will want to. The internet has (and is) changing everything about language learning, and in particular, learning Japanese. Online dictionaries in particular are making it easier than ever to learn, to work, and to enjoy the language.
Here are a few more useful online resources.
Basically it is a database of Japanese grammar. Highly recommended.
Very good for quizzing yourself when reviewing.
Puts furigana above kanji, and you can set your level and export to word. Useful for learning the reading so you can look them up.
It is free, useful, even works with Romaji. (Though you should give up Romaji as quickly as possible).
Good if you have questions and don’t have access to a professional Japanese teacher
A good thesaurus.
Really good dictionary. Still a “go to” for translators.
Jim Breen remains a deity.
Based on the work by Dr James Heisig. James is a Catholic priest who works at Aichi’s Nanzan University. The method he developed for remembering the kanji works really well for some, not so well for others. Possibly a left brain/right brain thing. If you a relative beginner, it is worth a try though.
One for the more technical, but a superb program for analyzing Japanese.
