Japanese scholars, am I right in assuming that I should try to get away from romaji as soon as possible? Feels like it would be a crutch once you know hiragana.

@neauoire Cool, thanks!

I’m going to Japan in December so I want to see how much Japanese I can learn in the next 3.5 months 😁

@maxdeviant set your phone/computer to japanese and listen to japanese TV.

@maxdeviant @neauoire learn like 40 common phrases and you'll be in pretty good shape

(best thing: it's actually feasible and fun, rather than try to go too hardcore and know only the scripts but no words)

@maxdeviant listening to Japanese radio is helping me identify commonly-used words and pick up new ones along the way. I now listen to Radio Kishiwada ( most days (has some music but mostly talking)
