    I'm using Lingo Deer to learn Korean (plus other stuff like yt videos and a book) and it's such. A good. App. I can't stress it enough. I've tried Duolingo before it but I haven't found it useful at all. Check it out if you want to!

    Mi fa molto piacere vedere più persone interessarsi seriamente al giapponese.
    Vivo a Tokyo da due anni e posso capire le difficioltà iniziali che si possono avere, personalmente (come dicevi anche tu) da italiana mi considero un po' avantagiata per via della pronuncia e un po' per grammatica/cotrutti simili (man mano ti accorgerai anche tu). Se posso darti un consiglio per quanto riguarda i kanji è di studiare proprio il costrutto e non solo scrittura e lettura. Molte volte la costruzione di un kanji può aiutare a farti capire a che categoria di "significato" appartengano. Ad esempio, se vedi un kanji con i tre trattini iniziali puoi intuire che sia un kanji che ha a che fare con l'acqua (波 Nami, onda / 港 Minato, porto). Credo che se inizi a notare questi dettagli partendo con i kanji iniziali la comprensione potrebbe semplificarsi un po'! 🙂

    Ciao Ellie! Waaa il video giusto al momento giusto! Questa serie di video sarà bellissima😍
    Ho iniziato anche io da 3 settimane e ho imparato hiragana e katakana, ma ora sono un po bloccato perché non so bene come procedere… Kanji? Grammatica?🤔

    0:17 So cool! I didn't know you could speak so many languages
    Nosotros tenemos casi lo mismo objetivo de aprender varios idiomas
    Mas sou brasileiro, então minha primeira língua é o português
    Anch'io parlo il inglese, il spagnolo e (un po' di) italiano, però per mia quinta lingua voglio imparare il francese i non il giapponese

    Good luck on your journey on learning Japanese, it's always a nice experience speaking a new language. You got it!
    Arrivederci, ci vediamo alla prossima

    Ciao non ti seguivo da 1 anno circa ed è incredibile quanto sia migliorata la tua pronuncia! Adesso è davvero difficile capire la tua origine 🙂

    3年ぐらい自分で日本語を勉強したでも今では難しくなっています。

    A great tool for language learning is the app Anki. It's a flashcard app but it's a spaced repetition system which means it will show you the cards you're struggling with and it will avoid showing you the card you've now learned. It's a great system and also people online have made tons and tons of decks you can download.

    I speak English, Spanish, French and Japanese. I really desperately want to learn Russian but it feels like I language that I require an actual teacher for. There are these authors I absolutely love but only 3 of their books are translated to English and so I wanna learn Russian so I can read their 24 other books.

    I would also really love to learn Arabic as well since I've always been fascinated by it. But I think Russian is going to be the priority.

    Japanese is so fun but so difficult. The issue I run into is the word order/grammar is so confusing that I can see and understand every single word in a sentence but still not know what the sentence means lmao. It happens all the time.

    Kanji is hard but it's also actually a super fun aspect of the language. You need to learn the radicals and what they mean if you haven't already.

    Also something I just learned is that Kanji actually can tell you how it's pronounced (I had no idea and I've been learning very off and on for 8yrs lol) by looking at the part of the kanji that isn't the radical.

    Like the kanji for bullet 弾, for the last few years I would have no idea how to pronounce that but last week I learned there actually is a phonetic clue.
    弾 the squiggly part on the left of the kanji is the radical and that means bow (for archery or violin) and gives you a general sense of the meaning. Bow as in bow and arrow. Arrow as in a bullet. So that makes sense and that's all I knew.
    But turns out the symbol on the right side of the kanji tells you how it's pronounced. 弾 単 is pronounced Tan and so whenever you see that character in part of a kanji that means it's very likely pronounced as Tan or Dan as it's on-yomi. So this 騨 is pronounced as Tan and so are other kanji with this symbol 単 on the right.

    What places do you plan to visit in Japan and will you be going there with friends, family or perhaps solo? 🙂
