I never thought about learning Japanese. I just like weeb culture. I heard it's the hardest language in the world but IDK Chinese looks harder to me! How long would it take to learn?

Depends on what you want to learn and why you want to learn it really. If you want to learn it because you need it for work, then it's considered a survival necessity and you'll learn much faster. But if you're learning as a hobby, then it'll take a bit more time in theory. It can take anywhere between 1000 - 3,500 hours to learn Japanese. Learning to speak it is much easier than learning how to write it. If you just plan on speaking then you're probably going to spend anywhere between 800 - 1,500 hours, maybe.

Again, it depends on you, how many languages you've learned already and if you can absorb new words like a sponge. I'm remaking JPLearn! in a revised edition and will continue from the last lesson I left off. Ideally it will teach Japanese at a much faster pace and make a lot more sense to people making the learning time significantly lower. Many have already said they loved the first edition so we'll see. smile

Good luck with your studies!
