i started learning Japanese because i been training karate for a while and i decided to give the language a chance. i also meet a beautiful native Japanese girl on a language exchange app, we started with messages on whats'app, then we started doing video calls on line. we finally meet and became boyfriends....her English is not good but i manage to understand her English pronunciation (i speak Spanish so is not hard for me to understand Japanese people speaking English) is been a fun and a great experience so far.
now i want to learn Japanese just for her...
living in japan with her is also an option and i don't want to be an average aho gaijin that doesn't know anything about culture and language.
I have always held a deep appreciation, respect and admiration of East Asian cultures/people and their philosophies, in particular, Japanese and Chinese; and regard the Japanese written language as the most beautiful (so poetic). Recently decided I would like to celebrate my 50th Birthday in Japan in 2-years time, and so put it on my 'bucket list' as a goal and started taking local night-time classes. I hope to be able to speak fluent enough so that I can fully enjoy, experience and interact with the people/society to gain the most from my visit.
I was looking for an online support resource, and out of all the ones I have come across, Japanesepod101 seems the best one, precise, interactive, structurally sound, comprehensive lists, quizzes & tests etc; and the ability to actually be able to slow down audio/video in order to gain a proper hearing of the words/conversation is a great tool.
I've got 2-years to complete my goal, wish me luck!
I have multiple reasons for learning Japanese.
I want to be able to travel to Japan and communicate with native speakers in their language.
I want to be able to read and understand Japanese Light Novels and Manga without having to rely on fan-translations.
I want to be able to watch Japanese movies and anime without having to rely on subtitles.
I want to be able to listen to Japanese music and actually understand the lyrics.
I think it's not only a beautiful language, but an awesome one as well.
Great to have you here!
