well, my level is spoken-only basic (not VERY basic, but nothing philosophical either) conversation. My method was 1) learning grammar patterns from a textbook (i used 'nakama') 2) getting a dictionary (i got Oxford's Basic, which is bad for vocabulary, has only 3000 words, but has a nice useful appendix on grammar) 3) used the best-ever, ultimate Japanese learning tool available in the west - anime. Watch/listen & write down words & check meanings. Making pretty swift progress - but this won't work for everyone
