I studied abroad in Japan for a semester and took a Japanese I course (first time taking a Japanese course). Probably learned the most basic of things, but can't say I really know it. It's been awhile since I came back and I'll say I only retained about 75% of it.

Hai!

I speak enough to get by right now as in I could easily survive in Tokyo and I'm learning more every day. as for how I am learning I am doing so from multiple sources honestly.

Rosetta Stone 1-5 Japanese is actually VERY helpful (got it a bit ago from the Military.) It does help teach words, reading, writing and conversational things well enough.

Other sources I use is honestly just native Japanese people. I've managed to gain a few that I could consider close friends and I help them with English while they help me with Japanese. We take turns speaking each others native languages so that we get equal time practicing.

While I will idly sing praises to Rosetta stone.. I will say the best way I've learned so far is from native speakers. You learn so many more words that way and run into far more slang that helps you sound more fluent.

Once upon a time a young me learned Japanese then years passed without using it so I'm not that good at it.

語学は趣味です。日本語はむずかしいからまだ少し分かります。一番おもしろいことばです。今はCRで学びます。 :D

Not that I'm great at it.

Yes. Took several years to learn it fluently (damn you Kanji, damn youuuuu). I did it as a hobby and so I could watch/read content in it's raw format. It's nice being able to buy content long before it's ever released in English. Far more enjoyable to me I might add.
