School... -.-" My german teacher (in high school) isn't so good... no, she was good, but the teaching way... that isn't... She love the long stories and oral recitations...
That's all, I think ˇ.

Did you get pissed at a sub group or something to go that far, on the other hand you have another language acquired.

Nah, I wasn't pissed at anyone :D I was in high school and the only anime I could watch was the DVD's I had at home. I wanted to be able to understand what they were saying in japanese instead of listening to the Canadian dubs or missing the animation while trying to catch the subtitles.

That and I really wanted to know what I was saying while I was singing to the nice anime music ^-^'

so its safe to assume that you don't know the japanese language, yet.

Right. That's why I said I just started learning Japanese.

You can read Katakana and Hiragana but don't know it meaning O.o

Reading them is easy, I mean there are only a few kanas and ganas (45 basic forms each), you can memorize them within days. But since I don't have a Japanese dictionary I don;t know what they mean. Kanji is hard, I'm still working on it (over 2000 kanjis!!!).

@Lost-dono
        I do like reading quite a bit but I am quite a picky reader. I only read novels with descriptions that I find interesting; can't really stomach non fiction or poetry. At least English poetry. Also, I'll try to get an avatar soon (usually find such things too troublesome).         
Lol, being picky isn't always good.

My huge problem with Japanese is they spell the kanji differently from mandarin, if only there's a dictionary with complete list of kanji and how to read them.... Katakana and hiragana, no problem, just don;t know what the words mean  :hahaha:
