Yes! My first REAL topic in the Love Hina forums. And as a HKSS trainee as well. To show my appreciation and because I simply wish to share my discoveries at times, here's the anime site. But just to save you a bit of time, here's the main attraction:

Shinobu-chan wa kawaii desu! ^_^

Japanese is a hard language to learn, for example just counting there's many different ways of counting. It is not just 1,2,3, but a different set of counting numbers if they're cylindrical things, box things, books, etc.

Hai, eigo wa sugoi muzukashii.

I'm just glad I learned it as a first language. :p Also, that it didn't cripple my ability to learn other languages considering English's unstable nature.

I know that just from the little japanese i have learned but i dont want to learn spanish so i purposly dont study, dont try, and basically dont care. However when it comes to japanese, i really want to learn so i will study a lot and will try hard. Im determined. :D Right now my pace is a little slow because school and work are kicking my ass but as soon as school slows down approaching summer ill pick up the pace again.

I've suspended my learning of it a bit to concentrate on my busy school life, but I plan to take Oriental Studies or something along those lines at uni (Oxford, preferably) so I'd pick it up then.

Also, I'd get a year in Japan!

Is it?

The nice thing about Japanese compared to Eurpoean languages... Is you dont have to bother at all with memorizing Verb conjugation. Its really simple in Japanese...

Anyway...

Anooo... Boku wa Nihongo ga sukoshi hanashimasu... Demo... Boku wa ii ja nai.
Dakara, boku wa bankyo iru!

Pretty good resource, by the way. =Þ

Depends. If you already speak a European language, Spanish is much easier than Japanese. If you don't, then I have no idea (As I speak English as my only truly fluent language, and so I have not experienced learning Japanese without speaking a European anguage).


English, Spanish, the lot, all influenced by Latin. All use the same (with a few differences) alphabet. All have the same SVO pattern. Japanese has Kanji, SOV pattern, etc.

True, true... But, I'm an English speaker... I took about 3 years of French though... But by now I've forgotten nearly all of it because of learning Japanese... XD

I still think most of Japanese is easier than French or something though... The only hardest part of it... is learning the Kanji. >_< (Katakana and Hiragana are challanges... But not nearly as hard.)
