Learning to write using different alphabets
Posted 12 May 2012 - 05:40 PM
I was pretty disappointed. I'd always hoped that if I tried to learn to write or read in an eastern script I'd find it easier, my friend claimed she knew some dyslexics who found hiragana came quickly to them while she struggled with it. I'm not sure how, I mean look at the alphabet, many of the letters look so alike: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiragana
How about other people, how have you found learning using different alphabets? Anyone tried? I thought maybe Kanji might be easier for me as the letters don't look so similar, however my friend said Kanji was found to be difficult in general as it relied so much on context, not just of the symbols around it, but the context you were writing it in, so hirigana was considered easier...sequencing isn't my strong point either, so maybe I should just accept all written languages will be hard for me, just for different reasons. I just can't help but wonder what the simplest written language for me to learn would be.
