    Yes. Fluent enough to travel alone/live in Japan. Definitely not fluent enough to pass the official proficiency exams (the higher levels).

    that's actually pretty great, Seiryu. Learn it all by yourself? Man, I want to learn some Japanese too but just can't memorise all the letters/characters/what you call them?

    Definitely no way. I was forced to go to two Japanese schools from 1st grade, took advanced classes in high school/college, and improved the most when I traveled to Japan alone. I had a bunch of sensei that were from Japan, so that's probably a big part of it too.

    Japanese is hard since it has hiragana (basic characters), katakana (for foreign words), and kanji (Chinese characters that have both the "Chinese reading" and "Japanese reading").

    Yeah it is too hard for me. I couldn't memorise all the Kanji letters at all!

    Any of you watch Barakamon?

    Well nowadays even kids in Japan have a hard time with kanji since computers auto generate them.

    I don't follow Barakamon though.

    Oohh. Try it seiryu senpai. It's one feel-good anime you need once in a while. Specially for us working adults.

    I'm usually really pressed for free time. I'll probably check out the manga when work has a slower period.
