Is Japanese Hard??? 日本語の勉強。。。難しい???

13 Jan

study日本語の勉強は難しいですか?という質問はほとんど全ての人の心に宿っている質問です。まぁ、日本語だけではなく、どんな外国語でも、勉強するのは難しいかもだと思います。でも、勉強すれば勉強するほど簡単になるとも思います。真剣に勉強すればそんなに難しくないです。外国語を勉強したいなら、外国語の勉強のために献身しないといけないし、注意を集中しないといけないし。そうすると、どんな外国語でも学べるようになりますわ。基本的に、概観として日本語の勉強が難しいと思われているって本当ですが、日本語の勉強が難しいかどうか君の態度によると思います。難しいと思うなら、難しい。難しくないと思うなら、難しくない。

簡単。(笑)

The question “Is studying Japanese hard?”, is a question which dwells in the hearts of almost everybody lol. Well, It’s not just Japanese, but I think that learning any foreign language is probably difficult. However, the more you study a language, the easier it becomes. If you study seriously, then it is not that difficult. If you want to study a foreign language, then you have to dedicate yourself to studying, and you really have to concentrate on your studies! Having done that, you will then be able to learn any foreign language. So basically, yes the general view is that learning Japanese is difficult, but whether or not it’s difficult I think depends on your attitude to your Japanese studies. If you think it’s difficult, then it’s difficult. If you think it’s not difficult, then it’s not.

Simple. lol.

    Love your blog! Thanks a lot for writing so many useful/interesting articles!

    I agree with you about how it’s your own state of mind that makes a language difficult or not to learn… i’m learning Japanese, as well as Czech, and i definitely find Japanese way easier…
    I know that (and that’s what i’m working on right now to improve my czech), it’s mainly because of my own approach of the language : for me japanese’s (korean as well) language is logical. For exemple, when i learn a grammar point i can instantly understand how it works whereas Czech’s language/grammar is wayyyyyy more difficult for me to understand (just like German was back in high school days… bad memories LOL!). But when i really try to concentrate and accept Czech’s logic, it becomes suddenly way easier… and that’s the magic of learning!

    I guess an important part of learning a foreign language is to be interested in the country(ies)’s culture. I love Japanese and Korean cultures a lot, thus i find it more interesting and exciting to learn the languages. Plus, it helps when you listen to music and watch movies/dramas…
    On the contrary, i’m not drawn into Czech culture thus the learning stays more theoretical, there is nothing emotional in it (yet… i’m working on learning more about it but there are only 24 hours in day XD).

    A few of my friends have tried to learn Japanese or Korean and mostof them have quit saying they didn’t get the logic of the language.
    It’s the same thing with movies… i tend to (try to) show a lot of japanese (korean, chinese… ) movies to my friends but almost of them hate those movies (apart from wong kar wai and zang yimou they don’t like anything… and they don’t want to hear about anything japanese anymore apart from Takeshi Kitano’s work LOL).
    The reasons are that they don’t like the rhythm (it’s usually slow paced), nor do they like the way the stories are told, or the photography. It’s really interesting because it shows how our brains are shaped into a certain way of seeing the world, of thinking and how for some people it’s harder to open up to another philosophy or another interpretation grid.

    Well, I think I got carried away LOL!
    Thanks for everything.

    (hope my english makes sense, i’ve not been writing in english for quite a long time…)

      Hey!!! Thanks so much for your comment and thank you so much for loving my blog! Very much appreciated and means a lot!
      I do aplogise for my late reply!

      Oh cool Czech and Japanese! How are both going so far? Are you learning Korean also? I have just started learning Korean (i.e. Hangul etc) and it’s really fun! Korean is a cool language and I love Korean entertainment! Yes I definitely agree. If you have a particular interest in a certain culture then it just makes it that much more easier to learn the language because you have a genuine interest in its culture. What got you into Korean and Japanese culture? Have you been to either places before?

      Haha my friend is a big fan of Takeshi Kitano tooooo lol All she does is talk about his work haha

      No you didn’t get carried away! I like nice and lengthy comments! Much better I think haha

      Yesssss your English is perfect! Amazing! Don’t worry! I couldn’t tell at all that you hadn’t been writing English for a long time as you say! Fantastic English! 🙂 xxx

        Hey!
        Thanks for your cheerful reply 🙂

        I’ve not been to Japan or Korea… yet, but i definitely will, someday! I already have quite a good idea of what i want to do in Japan but to travel you need money, and money doesn’t like me LOL!
        I’m trying to discipline myself to learn kanjis. I’m not good at learning by heart, i’ve never been, i find it boring. But there are some authors and some mangas i want to try to read in japanese, so i try to use that as a bait… let’s say its efficiency is unsteady XD!
        Right now i’m working on listening skills, which is way more interesting and funny!

        As for how i got into japanese culture… i don’t really know. As far as i can remember i’ve always loved anything “asian related”. In highschool i knew more about chinese and japanese history than european one (not that i should be proud of that LOL)!
        I’ve read Japanese literature for years and 10 years ago i immersed myself into buddhism (i don’t practice but i read and think about it A LOT ^^) i started with theravada and mahayana then i found out about zen and it made me grew even closer to japan, i’ve been quite interested in tea ceremony as well… then i started listening to some music (traditional as well as rock) and a few years back i discovered jpop, dramas and i immersed myself for a year and a half in that part of japanese culture which i didn’t know at all.
        But i’m definitely more interested in the traditional side of the culture, some part of it suits my personality quite well (even though a lot of things would probably irk the hell out of me were I to actually live in Japan). I think I love it because I dislike our own european/french/capitalist culture and individualistic philosophy… i love the idea, which doesn’t mean i would be able to live happily over there…

        I’ve just started to learn Korean as well… i learned Hangul out of curiosity and it lead me to try to know more about that language. And i’m really interesting in the history of that country.

        As for Czech… i started learning it last year, after a breakup that left me literally heartbroken. I needed to keep my mind away from all that suffering, and learning a language is the best way i know (weird, you say? LOL!), and i chose Czech because it was useful in my work. I work in a ski resort in the Alps and a lot of Czech people come but they don’t speak english, at all… so i thought that i could kill two birds with one stone 😉 but i can’t say i’m fond of it… i’ll probably learn korean faster XD!

        And what about you ? What got you into Japanese language and culture ?
        Oh, and, I love London, I was there in October, we went to the Comic con with my brother (he lives in London), did you go? I spent a week there and all i did was eating japanese and chinese LOL (coz back where i live, in the Alps, in a small village, far away from… everything, you don’t get the chance to eat anything like that XD)!

        Ciao!
