For what it's worth the particle "wa" is written with the hiragana "ha" which you probably knew but just overlooked but is a thing nonetheless, hence:

Fair, well that's a thing to remember especially when using IMEs on computers. That also applies to "konnichiwa" and "konbanwa" as they're contractions of longer phrases that use the particle.

My main recommendation which applies to any language but especially Japanese because of kanji is to get yourself some kind of spaced repetition program (I use anki, since it's free and does the job). I have no real sense of self discipline but having a system where I have to do vocab every day, while at the same time making it as efficient as possible so there's as little as possible to do at a time, has really made my Japanese learning.

Way ahead of you. I'm using anki right now. I'm pretty well off for recall because I basically learn new words in english by chunking them like pictures (as in: see the whole word rather than the letters individually) so I can pick it up reasonably quickly.

why does liking their visual art necessitate learning Japanese?


DISCLAIMER: by saying "their" I didn't mean to generalize all Japanese people. I am aware that there are many different and unique cultures within the Japanese islands, all of which are very underrepresented in film and tv

It doesn't, but I also like a decent amount of poetry and philosophy from that area of the world; much of which is fairly unique. That, and the chance to visit there for a few years and hell I'm gounna learn at least the basics and take the opportunity

Totes fair. I've found that Chinese is perfect for poetry just due to the construction of the language. I imagine Japanese is similar.

Lots of Japanese movies, breh. In my experience, listening to Chinese is much harder than speaking it. Total reversal of European language learning imo.

Have you guys lived in many countries or do you just learn languages for teh lulz?

I started learning Spanish from my Mexican grandparents and German from my German-American family.

I took French and Portuguese in college to help round out the Western Hemisphere languages. I like learning them, too. It came in handy when my wife (#KissTargetEveryYear) and I went to Europe for a little over a month. Especially in former East Germany. A lot of people over 30 there don't speak a lot of English, and my German helped.

German was a high-school thing and it's also my ancestry. I started learning Chinese while I was pursuing a degree in ethnomusicology, as that was the region I wanted to focus on. Never been to either country, sadly
