Not everyone 'born in Japan' speaks Japanese, though.

I'm learning it directly from a college professor who lived in Saitama. The only other methods that I can even imagine having a similar effect would be going there and immersing yourself, or serious self-study. Learning Chinese first would only help with Kanji, a little, and subtitles are a pretty big no.


This. I learned a bit of Chinese in high school (surprisingly easy language) and it helps quite a bit to at least get the Kanji down. Otherwise, you gotta incorporate the language into your everyday life somehow. Translate signs, go to a Japanese market, read cookbooks, news sites,etc etc etc. The options are out there, you just gotta find what suits you. Make it fun!

I grew up learning Chinese, and Kanji and Chinese Characters are very similar. For example, the basic kanji that appears in anime can easily be deciphered. Going to Japan is obviously the best way, but that would be really difficult.

Well, since Chinese is my second language, of course it would be easy for me.
