RE: Any other languages?

RE: Quick translation help: I love you.

Hello! I'm Eboni and I've been interested in Japan and its language and culture for years. I've just recently started studying the language. I enjoy calligraphy and I started learning a few Kanji that way. I've been practicing my Kana with brush and ink, too and I think its a fun way to learn them. ...
