    Yep. I started on Remembering the Kanji back in October though I didn't complete it. Considering how many of my favourite things happen to be Japanese, it makes sense for me to try to learn it.

    You need to know some Japanese slang though if you want to understand anime. The way I was taught as the "proper" formal way I guess.

    I would love to, but it looks so complicated... I'm learning Spanish and French at the moment, but once I'm better with those I consider taking up another and Japanese has always been a consideration. They have such an exciting and different culture, and it sounds like a challenge, but a fun one (as with any language!!)

    I watch someone on YouTube, MissHanake (http://www.youtube.com/MissHanake) who does Japanese and self-taught herself. She did the GCSE and got an A*, and is so so good and inspires so many people, including myself. She does great videos too about why we should learn languages and how we can learn them, so definitely watch them for the general stuff too!

    I WOULD LOVE TO LEARN JAPANESE! However, I don't have the time for it. I paid for Ken Cannon's online website with many resources but I haven't even got round to using them. I would so love to learn Japanese, it's been one of my lifelong passions.

    I know there are no plurals in Japanese, so 'hiking up the mountain' and 'hiking up the mountains' are the same in Japanese.

    Plus, the sentence structure is Subject+Object+Verb.

    But I much prefer Korean, and Mandarin is more fun!

    I'm learning the basics of Japanese. I've always wanted to learn Japanese because I think it's a beautiful language! Plus, my half-Japanese friend Kai from my judo classes wants me to learn Japanese.

    I know some from watching anime and having Japanese friends, but they said I shouldn't learn off anime
    It's a language I'd like to learn though, certainly.

    I would too, although I don't think it would be that useful other then for manga etc.
