    but gave up from 0.00% motivation. I did however write down loads of Kanji and the meanings,and learnt some vocab plus found some great resources too. What I didn't do was learn hiragana and katakana,which is what I'm doing now.And coming from someone who's a huge nerd and...

    Watashi Wa Nihongo O Benkyou Shimasu!

    I started learning Japanese in college, took 2 semesters of it which was all that was offered. Now I do Rosetta Stone and I love it. Japanese to me is an easy language to learn and very fun. Very different than when I took French in high school. I can fluently read and write...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
