Four years ago I decided to try to learn Japanese for personnal and family reasons. I have not touched it for a year and discovered this site this week in my tour of the net. I am finding the Hiragana tutorial very useful. I like the way it also builds up some words using the characters.
My profile pic is my alter ego possibly related to a pixie. I am off to Japan in two days to visit family, This will be my third visit. Hopefully this time someone will actually understand what i try to say. My last visit made me very aware of my poor pronunciation. I must go now to practise. I will try to keep this up when i get back
