Yay! I’ve finally managed to get a perfect score on the Hiragana test, in 5 minutes 30 seconds, no less. (Hiragana is one of the syllabic alphabets in written Japanese. There are 104 syllables.) Now, when I can finally get it down under 2 minutes, then I’ll be ready to move onto the Katakana.
On a side note, I’m considering going to Japan the summer after this one, to teach English. From what I hear, “they” (the school system) will pay for a room and plane tickets.
