Hey! I hath an extremely difficult question for you.. ok.. maybe not.. but here goes!

What does this mean?


Does the first part mean "How is your Japanese language going?" Or did I tranlate that wrong? I couldn't figure out the second part -___-

Also... what would be a good way to reply to this?;)

I think of 日本語はどう? as meaning "How are you finding Japanese?" which is sligtly different to your translation. Also, check the grammar section of this site under と思います -"I think," as this will help you understand the second part of the sentence.

Ongakka is correct:

"How are you finding Japanese? I think it's difficult."
