First of all, hello everyone as this is my first post on these forums.
Learning Japanese is something i have wanted to do for a long time. I have always had an interest in Japanese culture and history which has grown as i have got older.
Iam only now thinking of actually learning it. Problem is i messed up big time at school and got poor results. This was partly due to me suffering from depression at the time which Iam now thankfully out of. So now Iam 18 now and would love to start learning but Iam unsure where i should begin. Where would be the best place to start learning the basics? Will my lack of qualifications hinder my efforts getting onto language courses?
