Currently I am running a poll which asks people if they are learning Japanese:
So far, either most people want to or are studying Japanese. This really isn’t much of a surprise as I would think that the majority of people who visit this site at least have some interest in Japanese culture and I think that learning Japanese is an extension of that.
My question now to you all is: Why do you want to or are learning Japanese?
Have a go at answering that in the comments!!
As for me, my original reason was to understand the manga that I was reading it it’s original language. Later it became that I wanted to understand all the TV shows I was watching – it was at this point that I began to take it seriously. Now my reasons have evolved into more and more reasons, but at the core of it all, this was my original motivation: to understand things I enjoy in their original language.
If you don’t have any interest in learning Japanese, why not? I’d be interested in hearing your responses to this as well.
