Hello. I am currently studying Chinese but always have had a fascination with Japanese, and still want to learn it. I know the basics and the two alphabets in it already but kanji to me is difficult. Mostly when I look to Japanese kanji I get confused and mix them up with chinese..Is it possible to learn to speak both of those languages? How? Any tips (other than saying just wait to learn japanese).
I take Japanese and Chinese at the same time and I find it pretty easy. I started with Japanese though and I had trouble with the kanji so I decided to take Chinese and the Chinese really helped me with my Japanese because a lot of the characters mean the same thing although they are pronounced differently.
It’s pretty fun, you should go for it.
