A question that lingered in my mind some time now. I mean, I also learned quite a few English words as well but obviously, it could be an entirely different deal in Japanese.
I know that you “only” learn around ~6000 word with WK and a substantial part of being eloquent is about knowing multiple ways to say what you want to say. However, knowing “smart” words is the other part. Would I talk like/be able to listen to a Japanese child, an average adult or a linguistic University professor (idk, I kinda doubt that)?
The complexity of the concepts of words like conjugation forms/活用形 could be a good way to indicate some form of fluency in speech but on the other hand I’m really not sure how “dumbed down” these words in Japanese are as I have almost no knowledge of that.
I realize it’s relative and ultimately more about opinion rather than fact but I’m interested in what you guys have to say.
