how did you learn Japanese? or is it your ethnicity? (i hope you don't mind me asking, sorry if you get offended or anything)
I’m actually Filipino, but I took a few Japanese classes in college and then the rest I learned by watching Japanese dramas and TV Shows. This is why my strongest point is Listening and probably speaking not so much in reading.
I always watch without subs, I probably only watch with subs with its those technical dramas like medical dramas, because I would be totally lost but if its about School & Life I would totally understand, If I dont understand I research for the word, this is how I learn.
But I wont advise anyone to do it, To be honest, I wanna go back to those classroom settings and learn it the right way.
