Hi Hohokitty,


Thanks for leaving a comment. Unfortunately, being fluent only on kun-reading will not be sufficient to understand or to be understood. Both kun and on-reading are necessary and can't be avoided to master Japanese language.


If you have any questions, please let us know.


Sincerely,

Miki H

If I'm only fluent in the Kun reading, will I still be understood? And do I need to know the On reading of words to understand other people?
