I have been trying to study Japanese off and on for 10 years, mostly on my own, but I have also taken a few classes. I still have a hard time speaking and understanding it.
I can figure out simple things when written in Romaji, and know Hiragana (need practice w Hiragana), but don't know any Kanji. I can say a few simple things, but have a hard time understanding spoken language.
I have many Japanese friends and have hosted several Japanese exchange students. I would like to visit Japan, but before I go would like to at least be able to communicate with native speakers.
Hello, I'm Nicky.
