I make flashcards of kanji to read in the bus and study with my text books, while I'm in home I listen to podcast. Could you recommend other techniques, maybe a way to contact native Japanese people to speak through Skype or something to improve my Japanese.

The question seems too broad to be answerable in a useful way. In general, there are many, many techniques which help you learn a languageā€¦. Voted to close as subjective and argumentative. – Tsuyoshi Ito Jun 6 '11 at 13:53
On the other hand... we've now answered this question to a great extent on meta – jkerian May 17 '12 at 19:01
