....to read the manga?
Ratty said:Japanese has a few different alphabets
Ratty said:you really need to learn the spoken language before you can get started on studying those very much.
Aazealh said:Japanese does not have any alphabets. It has a logographic system and two syllabaries.
Aazealh said:That's simply not true.
Ratty said:So several different systems of writing then ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. I'll take your word for it, again I don't speak Japanese and never claimed to be an expert.
Ratty said:Not technically, I've just heard that it's much, much easier/faster to learn once you are familiarized with the spoken language. My friend tried to learn just from the writing first and said it was waaaaay easier once he included spoken language as well.
Aazealh said:Please don't take this the wrong way, but your friend's personal experience of learning Japanese as a hobby is not necessarily representative of a general consensus.
Not too sure about that but there were two threads in the past I remember reading -Ahmetal said:What's the best way to learn or what are some of necessary tools to learn to speak and read Japanese?
Meh..I should have searched. Thanks though. That helps.IncantatioN said:Not too sure about that but there were two threads in the past I remember reading -
