What is an easy way to learn another language?

I want to learn Japanese, then after that, Korean. I'm 15, and my Mom wants me to learn Spanish 'cause she's Spanish, and doesn't want me to learn another language before Spanish. I downloaded a bunch of apps to learn Japanese, but I want to know if there's another way, or anything that could help me. ^.^
I know that practicing with native speakers is a really good way to practice, but I don't know any, and I don't like video chatting with people (especially people I don't know. xD)

you've gotta learn one foreign language the old fashioned way.
-> then the others will get easier cuz u will have the experience.
there are good programs, materials, forums and stuff on the internet so you can learn for free. make sure you get stuff for reading-speaking-listening-writing. and you must know the culture of the country. You don't need a native speaker. use a video with subtitles in that language and your own and try to speak. you can use a tape recorder or something to compare.
Eg. I know of an old Basic Japanese teaching video course. "Let's Learn Japanese" and it was about Yan san. It's old and basic but perfect for a start. There are endless possibilities. just start somewhere: google or forums and you will be on your way. :)
a word of advice: if you know a foreign language already you know this: Dictionaries are not always reliable. One word can mean fifty others in your target language and might have different uses. you'll need guidance first, then your own experience to know what and how to use.

It takes 7 years to become fluent in a language,less if you visit a country where it is widely spoken.There are online courses you could take,but really the best way is to take a real concrete Japanese class.
