finding-my-own-peter asked: How did you learn Japanese and how long did it take you?

(๑◔‿◔๑) Hmm? Well I took basic Japanese for 2/3(?) years as part of junior high school and sorta ignored it for a few years after that. 

Then I got interested in otome games so I played a couple with great difficulty and lots of dictionary referencing, not to mention relearning all the things I forgot. After about the first two games I played I learnt enough basic structures/common words to just play other games/read manga without much difficulty. Also at the time I didn’t know about tools like instant VN translating tools like AGTH so I played things pretty much without any hints. Using AGTH is annoying anyway so I still don’t use it (strangely enough I find that those kind of tools make it too easy for one to rely on them completely instead of actually absorbing what they learn).

Nowadays I don’t really bother with learning at all but I refer to the dictionary every so often still when I come across uncommon terms and remember them after seeing them more and more.

By no means am I a master of the language but to get to my point…I guess it took me around 4ish years to get to my level of understanding…?

I’m probably the laziest person you can ask about studying Japanese LOL. Most people I know are actively learning using things like wanikani (is that what it’s called?) or taking courses in university…I learn the bare minimum to survive in otome games and don’t bother trying to become fluent so don’t be like me.

The future is made of a number of possibilities.
To you, they may be full of happiness; they may be full of sadness.
As for which one will occur, only you can decide.
But please don’t be afraid, for even the chosen future can be changed by you.
I pray…that you…arrive at a happy ending.
