Who's Learning Japanese?

Quote from: "Esther92"
Nippongo wa muzukashiku wa arimasen keredomo yasashiku mo arimasen.
Sorry to nitpick, but it should be 'nihongo' instead of 'nippongo'.
Nippon is what you say when you refer to japan, whereas nihon is general.
And when you say 'yasashiku mo arimasen'; yasashiku is an adjective only used to refer to people, and I guess in some respects, words, but other than that you can't refer to a language as 'yasashii'.
Now if you said 'kantan demo arimasen', that would be correct.
But then it'd be contradicting to 'muzukashiku wa arimasen'.

優しい and 易しい have the same pronunciation but different meanings.
易しい means "easy, plain" so you can reffer to a language as "yasashii".

Yeah I guess.
I overlooked the two yasashiis. (haha...)

It's like with tekitou.
One way you use it is being random but the other way is saying iikagen.
Eh, I forgot to listen during japanese school.

im self-studying too and i felt some frustration of
not learning the right and easy way. until a friend hand a book

and a software were i can learn/memorize common adjectives,noun and verb (the easy way)

it's far from the basic learning but it help a lot.
Since my hobby is to watch jdoramas it helps a lot too :)         

let's do our best gudluck to us!

ganbarimasu!

I am thinking of getting Japanese classes after my national exams end at around mid november. Hoping that my chinese would help some with the Kanji  :sry

Main motivation for learning is how I really love Japanese songs, and how I want to watch an anime without subs. Bet that'll take years..
