I’ve been taking classes in Japanese for almost 2 years, but I’m nowhere near fluency. I also have a million more kanji to learn. Here goes! 15 months ago

I have never taken a formal class in Japanese. For the past few years I’ve been set on teaching myself the language, and for a while early on I was doing pretty well and could speak simple sentences. Life got in the way of that and I’ve forgotten quite a bit by now. A few months ago my wife bought some immersion-style software (cheap version of Rosetta Stone) and I’ve been using that to try to catch back up on my vocabulary. The good news is that I seem to have a lot of knowledge tucked deep down somewhere from when I learned this stuff before, so I seem to be learning at a pretty fast pace. I’ve learned a lot of basic vocabulary, and the next step I’ve given myself is to learn kana again. Hopefully in a couple of weeks I’ll be able to recall most kana, which will lead to my being able to read simple passages (something that is always extremely helpful). 22 months ago

youngidealistFree One On One Tutor

My local community college has a free tutoring lounge where tutors come to volunteer. Wouldn’t you know that one really nice Japanese tutor was volunteering but no one was asking for her help. So, even though I am not in classes, I was able to slip under the radar, share my services as a math/science tutor, and then schedule some free one on one meetings with her, and she’s great! It’s like having a free private tutor.

I have a feeling that I will be oweing a lot of thanks in the long run to my new sensei. 2 years ago


I’m pretty good at first year stuff, except for Kanji. My goal is to become good enough to qualify for an entry level job in translating. 2 years ago
