Is Japanese Challenging to Study? How can F2L help you?

I think F2L helps many western people like me who are unfamiliar with Japanese writing system, grammar structure and more importantly with the communication rules of the Japan society.
Ryoko Sensei, I love your amazing descriptions of Kanjis’ meaning and your precise explanations to all my questions.
You opened my mind to the japanese culture and Asian world and I will miss our coffe together, along with Cookie.
We should continue and to something together: Italy and Japan have so much in common, there are so many possibilities.
