    French! J'adore Paris et France! The culture, the women, the food. That and latin america!
    Me too! I love Paris and France so much - I've been obsessed with the language and culture for as long as I can remember!

    Also love a bit of Norway!

    Germany. Having spent 4-5 months out there this year, I actually feel homesick for it! The culture just matched my personality perfectly

    人 and 女? Yes, they get ingrained into your brain very quickly. As well as 男 (man) and 子 (child.)

    Isn't the reading and pronunciation the same thing? Or do you mean their English equivalent? It is difficult, and honestly I find myself forgetting on readings quite a lot. But once you get into the habit of reading more, you'll find yourself remembering them more easily. For example, the on reading of 心 (heart) is "shin" - coming across common words containing 心 like 中心 (chuushin) and 心配 (shinpai) as you go along will help that stick better.

    I teach myself and I've never really used any programs (e.g. Rosetta Stone) so I can't soundly recommend anything.
    Yeah those!

    Yeah I mean i remember what they mean in English but not how to say them.

    You're self taught? :eek: wow. Impressive

    Woo! Konnichiwa Do you speak Japanese?
    Of course NOT Everthing depends on the exam result that I'm gonna give at 6 september(TOEFL).According to results,I'm going to Japan for university.

    So,I think I learn Japanese and kanji there,and have an opportunity to discover the mystery of east asia

    人 may be pronounced hito or jin. Hito when by itself (kun reading) and jin (on reading) when part of a word, e.g. 日本人, japanese person. I call them by their kun readings, and try to find some word with it in to remember the on reading, which helps memorise them. I hope that helps for you too!

    This is a little true.

    I used to be a japan addict and spent 6 months learning the language and wanted to visit my 2 uncles to live there. But after time, I realised that anime was the only reason why so I loved it so much lol and I slowly grew out of it. I still need to finish learning Japanese. I couldn't type for **** but had a good translation rate of speakers.
