Iv’e been told Anime is not the best source to learn Japanese from since they don’t speak things as a person would in normal everyday life.
I have spent about 500 bucks on many books and a few online lessons. There is a a lot of free papers/lessons you can print out online as well. Hiragana & Katakana are what I am focusing on first though. Then I can read it.
OK…this particular composition group may ring a bell but…as soon as I bring up Linked Horizon…SOME or maybe most of you would be familiar with what came out of it. HOWEVER…I HAVE to throw this question. How many of you know the former…Sound Horizon? The reason why I bring this up…is because my best friend introduced me to a particular song that sometimes has been going on repeat in my mind…you may have heard of it you may not.
Well done. I only know the first two lines of Hiragana so far. A few Kanji just from seeing them enough to know what they are now. I really need to dig my nose in. I bought MANY books and spent hundreds of dollars on stuff, but I’ve just not been doing much. I certainly know the eating etiquette though. Itadakimasu, Gochisousama-deshita. I practice every time I eat. I actually got to say Gochisousama-deshita to a chef in a Sushi place last week. My brother knows the owner/chef and he made us custom sushi, we got to set by him and watch, it was the best sushi I have ever had!! It was cool to be able to say Gochisousama-deshita right to him, and his responce.
If you don’t mind me asking, how long have you been studying?
