    My Japanese learning stemmed from my love

    for anime and wanting to watch it without subtitles. The more I learned Japanese and the culture behind the language the more interested I became and the more I wanted to learn it. This never ending cycle is why I am learning Japanese. So far I am slightly competent in my...

    Due to my years experience with various martial

    So Far It Is Interesting

    Before learning Japanese, or at least starting to, I always thought that it would be hard. I have heard that Japanese and English are the two hardest languages to learn, which is one reason why (at one time) I never took the opportunity to learn. However, sitting in my living...

    I Love Kanji.

    A Chinese import, the kanj system has found its permanent home in the scripture system of Japan. I can't imagine learning japanese wthout kanji. It's a complex process as you have to remember many things, the strok order, the readings, the meanings and the compounds in which they...

    I'm using a textbook called Japanese

    for Everyone by Susumu Nagara. -I am told it teaches more than both Genki books COMBINED. (Also 20% of the cost of both books, 20$) Also, I'm using Memrise to learn kanji, and KanjiQ on my iphone to learn the stroke order of said kanji. Memrise is bae, use it.

    I've been in the process

    for several years now. I am very comfortable with basic grammar, but I still haven't built up a very large vocabulary, and I only know a handful of kanji.
