Help me teach myself Japanese.

How do I get over learning-a-language block? Specifically, at a point when I've "plateaued" and can't find the motivation to keep climbing uphill... [more inside]

MidEast language map

I'd like to find a map of languages spoken in the Middle East. At least the major languages: Arabic, Farsi, etc. Anyone got better google-fu skills than me?

Hearing the wrong language

I live in Japan, and I speak the language only at a pretty minimal level. Occasionally when out in public I'll overhear someone's conversation, and I could swear they're speaking English, but then I'll realize they're actually speaking Japanese. The two languages sound nothing alike, so this is obviously something going on in my head. So linguaphiles, my question is: is there a name for this mishearing of a language?
