    who's studied Japanese and French, I'd have to say that Japanese is more difficult given that you must learn the various ways to write (kanji, hiragana and katakana) as well as all the pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary.

    I've also been able to learn a smattering of Spanish through listening and reading on my own, something not easy to do with Japanese.

       hey, check out my story below in the thread entitled:  my story (OT but it's my diary).

       You should get a kick out of it.

        My Japanese is terribly rusty, you are quite right to return to Japan every so often. Unfortunately, my folks don't speak it and my GParents who do live out of my area so I don't get the practice I'd like.

        I won't even attempt to reply in Japanese, my syntax would be all wrong, not to mention my vocabulary *sigh. Guess I'll have to go back to my books to see if I can pick it up again.

        So, I'll say, "laters" as I would in my home state of Hawaii :).
