Default Best way to Learn Japanese(with Computer sofware)

I would like to know what is the best software to learn Japanese? Cause I am interested in this really nice japanese girl, and I want to surprise her one day by talking to her (well, a little, not a lot) in her own language!

Rosetta Stone is supposed to be very good, but it's kind of pricey since it costs $200 dollars or more. http://www.rosettastone.com/personal/languages/japanese

Torrent for the win.

Big thing is be very polite and respectful. Every Japanese person I've met (which isn't a lot) was very picky about respect, and they were very appreciative to get some in return.

Ay man! I also would like to learn some Japanese. Google some tutorials and they can cover the basic. Because I can speak other languages, pronunciation is very easy for me. I can correctly pronounce all the Japanese syllables.

I also spend a lot of my life at a friends house (He is descendant from Japan). Just be very respectful. I suggest you bow when you meet them. And greet them with the following: KONNICHIWAGOZAIMAS

It literally translates to Good Afternoon. The GOZAIMAS simply indicates that it's a formal greeting. Here's 2 websites I look to often.
