i don’t understand it quite yet, maybe it’s because instead of an alphabet it has syllabary? perhaps the fact that words are pronounced literally as written makes it feel more familiar? i wouldn’t have expected myself to be able to pick up and retain a new language this easily.
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.
