Sorry if this has been asked before, I’m still kinda new here. Also it’s probably a pretty stupid question, since writing is one of four skills re: language learning… anyway: do you think it’s worth practicing writing Japanese?
I’d describe myself as a casual but dedicated learner (do my lessons/reviews when they appear, learning grammar on the side, but overall going at a pretty slow pace. Japanese is a fun hobby for me and I hope to get to a decent level eventually, but mastering my German is my priority at the moment).
I was thinking of at least practicing writing out hiragana/katakana, but do you think it’s worth it? I’m learning Japanese for a future-but-as-yet-years-off return trip to Japan so I can communicate beyond the basics. I guess I’m pretty paranoid that if I forgo writing all together, it’ll be harder to pick up later (that happened with my French speaking. MISTAKE).
What do you think? Is it worth it? Do you write Japanese regularly, or type it more often? Was it hard to learn how to write? etc., etc.
Thanks in advance!
