    Piggy, love the last pic, reminds me of funny event. :D

    Im' Japanese but must say the language is hard. speaking is easy but reading, writing :eek:
    Its easier nowadays to get by in Japan without being able to speak Japanese but still most of the people panics if someone start to ask questions in English.
    Japanese people are quite perfectionist so making mistake is embaressing to them.

    Alphabet in Japanese are Katakana, Hiragana, Kanji. Katakana and Hiragana
    are 50 letters each(proper counting). Kanji is sooooo many I don't think no one knows every single ones. If I complecates more there are old Kanji and new Kanji, also Kanji that only used in Chinese.
    And to complecate even more, all Kanji has several way to read. :D

    Hey japanAir, nice to see a fellow japanese in this forum. it will be nice if we can get to know each other well.

    so yeah. as a japanese i do speak the language at home with parents. but i stopped learning when i came over to england at about year 8.
    so now im devastating at writting japanese, but still enough to get an A* in GCSE :p
