Uh, at an elementary level. I did take it for four years in high school, but I was mostly a delinquent and didn't pay attention in that class.

I only started recently studying it again because my Japanese friends thought it would be a good idea for me to study in my spare time. I can order food with ease, and have SOME conversation, but most of the time I'm usually asking "wait, what does this mean?"

I've started learning it, and as languages go it doesn't seem particularly horrific... I feel much worse for any Japanese person learning to speak English if I'm honest!

If you stick with Hiragana and Katakana, then the written part makes a lot of sense. Kanji I'm staying away from for now, but we'll see!
At the moment it just feels like learning Ancient Greek. Get the alphabet (or in this case syllabary) nailed first and it's a lot easier

Do wish they taught it at schools though, I think there's only 1 or 2 in the UK that offer it, and there's only one exam board available for Japanese as well. Not a very common language here as far as I can see. Lots of people from my school are from Hong Kong so there's a lot of cantonese floating around, not much else besides english though...

I know 1-9 as well as dog,tree,woods and forest in kanji. I know the basic hiragana. You know like the vowels and ka, ki, ku and the like. I'm trying to work on my vocabulary as well.
