View topic - Question about learning japanese.
But my question is, will I have an equal or worst problem learning Japanese?
Will my old dyslexia affect learning a new language or am I done with that problem?
Thanks for your time!

And sorry to counter Isao's comment, but trying harder is not always the best method to learn anything. If you're having difficulties using one method, trying another is usually the most efficient way to go. Trying harder is often a waste of time and builds bad habits. When you start experiencing brain strain, that means it's time to take a break.

My sister has always been dyslexic (spelling?) and it's affected her study throughout school (well it did, she's 22 now)
however, she's always been very "arty" (with regards to art and music) and has a lot of talent there. I think there's a lot of truth in what Ishnar said - it's to do with how your brain works.
If you're anything like my sister, you may have difficulty learning the theory side of the language, such as the word order, verb conjugation and so on, but these are things that are tricky for most people at first, so don't be discouraged if you have trouble. Remember that once you've mastered these, you only really need vocabulary to be able to communicate (albeit fairly simply) and that's the fun part - learning new words / Kanji, etc.
Your best bet is to start off reading a bit about the history of the Japanese language, in the hope that it'll help you understand why it's like it is. Sure, it's very different to English, but it's likely that's exactly what attracted you to it in the first place. It's actually a very logical language once you get into it - just try not to compare it to English too much.
In short: Study at a pace that suits you. Don't try to run before you can walk. Remember that it takes time and dedication to become proficient in any language.
Also, if you ever get stuck, just ask somebody on here (they're a helpful bunch )
