Japanese Grammar - Thinking
in the right order can be one of the trickiest things for English

Japanese writing system has its roots in China, but all those thousands

Context in Japanese
- It isn't always what is said, but how it is said, or where it
is said, or who is saying it. Pay attention to the surroundings
