Thanks to Rhomel for sharing his experience learning Japanese both in Japan and in the United States. I could totally relate to the struggles he went through. When you’re in Japan, you would think immersing yourself would be easy, but it’s not always the case.
This interview was part of a series of interviews I did about learning Japanese (and language in general). If you haven’t, go ahead and watch part 1, 2, and 3.
Part 1 – Learning Japanese in Japan:
Part 2 – Teaching Japanese Online (and Learning English):
Part 3 – Teaching Japanese at a Japanese Language School:
Part 5 will be with me, trying to figure out why I still suck at Japanese after 5 years of living in Japan.
If you’ve studied language abroad and then returned back to your country, what was your experience like?
