A Busy Hello.

Postby Novice » Wed 10.19.2011 4:46 am

Hello. My name is Carl. I live in Seattle, and plan to live in Japan, hence my attempting to learn the language. I am not exactly fluent yet (notice the name "novice"), but am starting to memorize Hirigana characters. I am very busy language wise, as I tried to get into a Japanese class, but they were both full. I still wanted to learn, which is why I'm here. Now I'm learning both Spanish and Japanese, and I have a strange feeling I'm gonna be doing better in Japanese.
Sorry for rambling,
- Carl

Hi there, welcome :D

Learning two languages at once is not easy, even if they sound nothing alike. And according to various sources, Japanese requires 3 times more attention to attain proficiency than Spanish does- so depending on how immediately you're planning on leaving for Japan, I would consider only focusing on Japanese for now. That's just me.
