Learning By Myself

Hello! I am a HUGE fan of Dulingo and think it's great. (To anyone new, you'll love it). Anyway, I have a dilemma.

I am a teenager that is learning Japanese.

Well, here's the parents don't want me learning another language (ESPECIALLY not an Asian language) and my friends tease me for wanting to learn such a "dumb" language.

They say I only want to because I watch anime, but that is not the reason I want to learn Japanese.

To make things worse, my friend Rylee started Japanese, unbeknownst that I am learning it to. Every time I say something like こんにちわ ("konnichiwa", or "hello" in Japanese) she'll get mad and say, "Japanese is my thing. Stop."

Of course, she doesn't know I've been learning it. I know if I tell her she'll get REALLY mad at me.

It's not even like anyone can know about it anyway. I once almost blurted out "Thank you" in Japanese, but I caught it. Man, if only I could express myself...

Does anyone know what I could do?
