i had a hard time with german and spanish in secondary school. it was like i had to build them ontop of english and it never felt smooth. same with french during uni. egyptian was much easier, there are few sounds and you augment as necessary with “e” in clusters of consonants.
im rambling, so i’ll say: i’m using duolingo to take my time learning japanese. additionally i picked up the app “midori” as a handy lookup and reference — it has really opened my eyes to how beautiful the japanese language can be.
