    japanese (the language)

    has anyone ever tried to learn it, seriously? not just a few phrases and words picked up from anime and such. what is your native language and how hard do you think japanese is compared to other foreign languages you know?

    I know korean, english, french, and have been taking japanese for a year... and I thought japanese would be easy because the grammar is very similar to korean, but I think in reality it's harder than french! there are so many exceptions.. probably as many as there are in german, heh..
    and all that kanji (chinese characters) memorization really sucks although they are cool.

    Re: japanese (the language)

    From what I've heard, english is the hardest language in the world to learn completely. For me, what makes the japanese language a bit hard to understand is how it's broken down into 3 different sections, Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. Sentences can vary when using the language and it can take a while to learn. I found Spanish and French a lot easier to learn than japanese.
