An interesting japanese sentence

Yuri, not trying to take the piss, I am just wondering is there some obstacle you have to learning kana that is out of your hands?

I am asking because to learn hiragana and katakana is relatively easy. I learned through brute force drilling in a total of about 10 to 12 hours over 6 to 7 days. I know people who learned it in 3 hours using a book by James Heisig: Remembering the Kana.

There are a lot of benefits: 1) Japanese will understand you more easily, so you can get more responses to your questions. 2) There is a lot more material available to you. 3) Some people say, and I agree, that your pronunciation is improved by reading in kana. 4) It is the native realization of the language.

I am just asking through curiosity. Of course I can read your romaji.

I can’t I’m afraid…because Google translate won’t translate it. Curses!
