Learning Japanese isn’t easy, I think most people here would agree. Some of us study everyday, consume all sorts of media, put other interests we have on hold, only to wonder if we are actually good enough. Sometimes, the things people tell us are there to remind of us of how far we’ve come and how long we still need to go.
“You’re pretty damn good, you just need to push yourself to be more fluent.”- A member in my study group who had lived in Japan for many years.
This really put a lot into perspective for me. I think people generally think I’m good, but they know I can do better. I know I can do better. It’s something I think about a lot.
