    I've only just started learning Japanese, but reading katakana is my favourite thing. You start out the word without knowing what it means, and you just sound like a racist stereotype by the end of it. :lol:

    This is fun game to play when you're in Japan. You see a word in katakana. It's probably English, or maybe French. What does it say?! Fun quiz time!

    E.g: アイスクリーム = ah ee suu kuu riiiii mu. :hmmmm: aisukureeemyu. aisukreemu.... Ice Cream! :teehee:

    Actually katakana and hiragana are simple to learn

    It's kanji that's the problem

    If you ever forget a word, saying it in English with a Japanese accent is a solid second option!

    Katakana can be a pain. There's no real way to study it. On many occasions i've spent a few minutes repeating a word back to myself trying to work out what it could mean, only to discover that it was taken from German or Portuguese or something

    It gets even better when you're trying to read something and it says something weirdly out of context in French or German or Russian or some such.
