learning japanese for the first time has been interesting.
we cover material very quickly, and it is sometimes difficult to keep up with all the new vocabulary that we learn. there is something very familiar about japanese though, which I think is the grammar. similar to korean, the structure of the sentences is very different from english, and the sounds take getting used to.
for me, i think the method of learning japanese is effective, and i want to continue to strive in order to learn the language. honestly, school is the only time you can really invest the time and effort in learning a language, and i don't want to waste that.
