    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...

    So Far It Is Interesting

    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...

    I started trying to learn Japanese last year

    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...

    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...
