hi, in Japanese when you're American, should you use your American name when introducing yourself, with Japanese pronunciation (e.g. i'm Jasmine so the Japanese pronunciation would be something like "Jasumin"), or should you just pick out a Japanese name separate from your American name? thanks in advance!

+Steve Bellamy OHHH that's right, last names go first... duh! how did i forget that? thanks Steve!

then i should probably go with a Japanese pronunciation of my real/English last name instead of picking out a Japanese last name, right? bc like Zileene pointed out.. i probably wouldn't answer to a fake last name, haha

Even after so many years I still think "I can't do that. There's no point reading that sentence, paragraph, page in Japanese because I can't read it. There's kanji I don't know. Words I don't know." That little voice tells me that I can't and there are times when I listen to it.

But when I don't listen to it the most amazing thing happens. I find that I normally can do it. Even if there are words or kanji I'm unsure of, I can guess the meaning from the context and find that I'm normally right. Then I can read that. Then I've learnt something new.

Don't let that voice in the back of your head tell you "no".

Hello people!

Does anyone have any experience with scholarship if you want to learn in Japan? And would it be possible to ask some questions?

Hi guys I'm just stumble upon this community and I thought I might ask something.

What is the most effective way to remember kanji? Right know I'm using anki for android but my progress is still pretty slow and I remember the meaning of the kanji but not how to pronounce them. If there is any flashcard for anki that you would recommend I'm in. My target primary target is only to understand and able to read Japanese. Writing is Japanese is not necessary for me right now.

How does Japanese people write complicated kanji with the same size as the basic kanji?

If you're a beginner (in learning Japanese) you start with N5 and advance to N1
N5 is least difficult
N1 is most difficult

Mother's Day in Japanese is 母の日(ははのひ - haha-no-hi).
母(はは - haha) means "mother," and 日(ひ - hi) means "day."

You know not what you ask. Such a requirement will only bring discomfort; Knowledge is not good in itself.

Quotation from Makenaide song:
どんなに 離れてても, 心は そばにいるわ

Is it correct grammar? Because I had learnt the ても form supposes to be て-form + も ... But in the lines above, it turns out て-form + ても (離れてても) so it really confuses me.
