I would love to learn Japanese, German and Russian (and visit those countries of course). I just find it hard to get myself to acctually sit down and study those languages properly and revise. I just get distracted too easily and currently don't have much of spare time to do that.

I would like to go study in Japan later and also go living there if possible.

Study Abroad programs! Or almost better yet, once you have a degree the JET program pays you to work in Japan.

I've been to Japan (specifically Tokyo) 4 times now in my life and it's a really cool place. I usually went when I visited my family in Korea since it's so close by (2 hour plane trip). Learn Japanese? No thanks, sure watching anime influences the level of interest in Japanese, but I personally don't think it will benefit my life in the future other than when I'm watching anime or reading manga and even then I'll probably move on from all of that as times goes on and life gets busier. If I had to learn a new language, it'd probably be Spanish since it's more beneficial when living in United States.

Spanish is definitely really useful here in the US if you end up moving anywhere in the west coast, not sure about anywhere else I'm lucky to have Spanish as my first language because it makes communicating with the majority of the population that live here. I'd say go for it. I spoke with some of the Japanese foreign exchange students here at my college and I learned that some of them were taking Spanish courses at a nearby community college or were planning on start learning one way or another.

As of right now, I have finished the elementary Japanese courses at my school, and next semester I'm taking a culture course that'll go towards my Japanese minor, and if enough students sign up, I might even be able to go to a two and a half week trip to Japan once the spring semester ends. I plan on applying for a study abroad program that my school has partnered with another university in Japan, where you're there for the entire next fall semester taking Japanese language and culture courses.

I want to go to Japan but not speak it, partly because it looks really complicated to learn and I feel it would give more adventure and wonder to go there not knowing what anyone's saying.

I've thought about trying to learn Japanese before then I thought if I were to put the work into learning another language it should just be Spanish since so many people in America speak it

I will be going to Japan sometime in the future. I may even try to live there depending how my life goes. It is my dream to make that happen. I have enough Japanese knowledge to get the job done.
