These are the copybooks for Katakana and Hiragana.

http://www.4shared.com/file/0Vdj-LQA/Hiragana-Copybook.html

Please give them to your friends who are interested in learning Japanese even if you don't need to use copybooks anymore.

First, one would be well served to learn the Japanese language's "alphabet," Kana.

http://www.realkana.com/

Start off with Hiragana, after you've memorized Hiragana, memorize Katakana. You can come to recognize them with ease in only about four collective hours. After this, you may want to write down the Kana on a piece of paper to identify which ones you are lacking in, invest extra effort into the ones you have trouble remembering. If you're good at memorization, this is a good way to get your spirits up quickly, as the Kana are surprisingly easy to memorize.

Once you've memorized your Kana, you should focus on Kanji. I recommend creating an account on "Quizlet." Once on Quizlet, look for a good set of first grade kanji flashcards. Here are some that I prefer, or have created:

Here's an alternative to Quizlet:

Of course, there are other flashcards around, feel free to look for the ones you respond to best.

This seems to be a serious course of Japanese.

Thanks for sharing everyone.

I study the language myself (well, on and off), and I've found virtual flashcards to be excellent for daily practice:

https://ankiweb.net/shared/decks/japanese

I started studying Mandarin Chinese with both traditional and simplified characters a few months ago, and learning characters in Chinese actually made it easier for me to recognize or relate the meanings in Japanese Kanji. Of course, the characters don't always translate exactly, but written Chinese has had a profound influence on the Japanese language -- because without Chinese, Japanese would most likely not have been written down. (Maybe eventually it would have, but it would look totally different.)
I like to think of it in a similar way to the strong influence of Latin, French, or German on the English language. You don't necessarily have to be fluent in Latin/French/German to learn English, and you don't have to be fluent in Chinese to learn Kanji, but by learning the root or parent languages, it becomes a lot easier to remember words/ideograms or use context clues to remember what they mean.
