What do you find difficult in the Japanese/Chinese language?
Posted 12/19/10
For me I find it's hard to understand what business men are saying and remembering all those essential kanji. As for Chinese it's remembering which tones to use.

For Chinese its Tones and Characters

For Japanese, the difficult kanji

Definitely writing characters for Chinese. Using a PC to write is not too bad, but writing them with a pencil takes many many hours. (To make them stick on your mind)

The tones aren't that bad, its when you learn Chinese word for word, and speak one word at the time that the tones are important/hard. But if you say a sentence, it is quite easy.

I have never studied Chinese before, but I do Japanese at school. I find that kanji are difficult to write. However, I enjoy writing vertically as I am left handed and find that my hand does not rub against the ink and smudge my writing, as is the case for me when writing left-to-right.

Also, conjugating some Japanese verbs can be difficult. Take 'atatakai' for instance. If I wanted to make it a past negative, I would have to say 'atatakakunakatta'. That just sounds weird!

Been THERE before .When I asked my mother a way to remember kanji better she told she to write it down at least 100 times because that's what "all japanese people do".And yet I can't even remember what kanji I wrote!Wel,at least I'm improving my reading skills slightly,but that's about it haha
