Do you wish to learn how to speak Japanese?
Japanese is a particular language with a complex system of honorifics reflecting the hierarchical nature of the Japanese society, with verb forms and particular vocabulary to indicate the relative status of speaker and listener. There are many dialects spoken in Japan. The Japanese language is written with a combination of three different types of scripts: Chinese characters and two syllabic scripts made up of modified Chinese characters. The Latin alphabet is also often used in modern Japanese, especially for company names and logos, advertising, and when inputting Japanese into a computer. Japanese vocabulary has been heavily influenced by other languages, especially by Chinese. The so-called KÅgo (colloquial language) is the predominant method of both speaking and writing Japanese today, although Bungo (literary language) grammar and vocabulary are occasionally used in modern Japanese as well.
