    okay but if you would like to learn more please take a Japanese language class. You can't learn an entire language on your own.

    Says who? I never went for classes, and I can honestly say I'm doing okay with Japanese. I'm pretty sure a lot of other people learned new languages without having to take formal lessons.

    You learned Japanese from speaking and intereacting with the people in Japan right? I don't think someone should try to learn from Ouran Hostess Club. It does help watching a bunch of shows but people will think you're gay for using words primarily used by women because you saw it in a book or anime.

    Let's look at it this way... before I went to Japan I didn't exactly interact with any Japanese people. But when I went to Japan I found I could speak fine - which means that contact with native speakers isn't necessary, but it does help. I guess you just have to have a knack for languages.

    Well thats not entirely true. Individuals can study from textbooks and language learning software on their own. Language classes are a big help though. I had English as Second Language classes since I was in grade school and ppl think that Japanese was my second language when it was actually my first. ^^;

    I'll honestly say this though, dont expect to learn Japanese solely from manga and anime. Its good to take interest in a new language so...dont ruin it for yourself.

    Hahaha, that's okay, I started taking Chinese classes when I was 7 and couldn't last half a year. Now I still can't say a proper sentence in Chinese. But I can read some words, though if you asked me to read the newspaper headlines I'd go completely blank. XD It's almost the same with Japanese though, my kanji reading abilities suck - without furigana it's almost impossible for me to get through the first chapter of a novel.

    ...well, learning a new language isnt exactly easy y'know. But I think its great that you're going through the effort of taking Japanese classes...at college level to add. ^_^

    Whats wrong with saying "baka"!?

    ....baka, ba~ka. Kehehhehe.
