Posted in: How difficult or easy is Japanese to learn, compared to other languages? See in context

First of all, no language is easy to learn. But the degree of difficulty will depend on your circumstances: How willing you are to learn, what materials are at your disposal, how competent your teacher is, or if you have any at all, are self-learning, what other languages do you know that can serve as background for your new language, also how often you practice. My son is learning Japanese as a second language and he's doing quite well, primarily because he knows Korean and Chinese, both of which are a bit similar to Japanese. He also meets with his tutor from Preply.com ( http://preply.com/en/japanese-by-skype ) regularly and has a Japanese friend he practices with.

Posted in: Why are Japanese so bad at English? See in context

"School students get a lesson once a week if they’re lucky, for less than an hour. "

But this won't cut it. I get regular Japanese lessons on Skype from Preply.com ( http://preply.com/en/japanese-by-skype ) and it's just enough for me to master the language. So I'm imagining that a less-than-an-hour weekly class will not help these kids at all to learn a new language, even if it's something popular like English.

If you want to learn something new, especially if it's something as complex as a foreign language, you need to practice constantly and consistently. Learning a few words/phrases/rules once in a while will get you nowhere.
