    I Can Do It!

    I've got 3 CDs and 4 books to help me learn Japanese. I'm listening and reading them with an open and optimistic mind. I really hope I don't loose my will to learn and get lazy. I love the Japanese language so wish me luck!

    So Far It Is Interesting

    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...
