PLEASE READ!

Hello! I wanna tell you if you are reading this and are learning your first second language, or learning a more challenging language i wanna tell you to never give up!! I've been learning Japanese since July, and have been so proud of myself oh how far i have come and how much i know. I start to understand sentences more fluently and i understand the flow better each time i come back to learn more Japanese. You will improve i promise you!! Keep going and don't let anyone tell you otherwise <3

Thanks for the encouragement. I started Irish just after you started Japanese and I am just beginning to see some progress. Never give up, never surrender.

Thanks! I'm actually kind of curious about the Japanese language but learning it even to a basic level seems like an extremely daunting task. Barely passed the first lesson. :(

I recommend learning Hiragana first. tofugu.net has a good guide which uses mnemonics and spaced repetition. Takes a few hours to a few days to learn. And if you're serious about Japanese you should start learning Katakana after. I don't know yet if Duolingo uses Katakana at all, but you can already read (but probably not understand) a lot of text on the Internet.

Memrise have courses for learning Japanese using the Roman alphabet, ideal if you are visiting Japan as a tourist......and the lessons are free!

do not worry!! you can't remember all of the hiragana in under one night, and I felt the same way too when I first started but I got super confident once I started to take notes, used multiple sites and searched up questions if I felt confused about something. Taking notes to me at least seems very important, it helps you get a better grasp of things when you write things down! keep practicing. practice makes permanent!

I agree! I've been learning Irish for about 3 years, and japanese for about 3 weeks! :) Languages also help your mental and physical health so..... why stop anyway?
