My son Robert is teaching himself Japanese. I don't know what made him want to do this, but so far I am impressed with his progress. Did you know that the Japanese use 4 alphabets? One is the one that we know and love, there are 2 others each containing 46 letters, and a final one that contains 2000 letters. Whats up with that? And how difficult would it be to find the keys on a Japanese keyboard? I struggle with the 26 we have.
Robert has learnt the two 46 letter alphabets. I am amazed. The most Japanese I know is futon and sushi. I guess he gets his language abilities from his father.... Sayounara!
