    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

    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've been in the process

    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...
