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.
Last year I interviewed a bunch of people about learning Japanese. One of them was Risa from JapanesePod101.com. Although the purpose was to talk about learning Japanese, as she teaches it on YouTube, we ended up talking about how she learned English and about language in general.
Ever thought of immersing yourself in Japan and going to a Japanese language school. I interviewed my friend Jess who did just that. She talks about her motivations to go to Japan, how the classes were like, and what she did post-school to continue her Japanese language learning journey.
