Hi Debs and Amaya

Excellent posts from both of you. Yes I am fluent in Japanese and can read it but there's so much I don't know, its the most difficult language in the world overall. Chinese is more difficult to speak because of the tones, I learnt Mandarin too so that I could compare.

I went through a phase here of learning new Japanese words every day but my memory is really bad in this environment, also the crap meds I am on, also having turned 60. Before my arrest I was learning to write Thai.

I really miss my Japanese wife and Japan. Very good, honest people which is why they are so easy to scam. I consider myself more Japanese than British now.

Will you go back there when you are released? And do you have any contact with your wife?

I always thought Japanese was easier than Chinese, but I never advanced very far and that was years ago that I learnt a bit.

Hi Amaya

Yep spoken Japanese is easier. No pronunciation difficulties. Grammar is a nightmare though. Chinese grammar and word order very straightforward. Cantonese is more difficult than Mandarin. I'm sure you'll find people who disagree with me though

You are an excellent linguist. I love French. In 2013 I was attending Alliance Francaise (they are excellent teachers). Unfortunately I became Ill again in 2014 and haven't been well enough since, not if I want to do it properly. I have various French radio stations on my phone but do not listen enough.

If I was totally free of mental illness I would continue with Alliance Francaise and spend time in France working. However I'm resigned to the fact that I won't ever do this. When I first stopped A F I'd cry regularly at having lost my dream. I am sure that I would have got to a good standard by continuing my study. Anyway, who knows, I might get well enough to get back.

Never give up on your dreams Deb. They are reasons for recovery.

Hi A may a

Thanks for asking.

As expected, nothing really happened. Judge confirmed my lawyer had filed for dismissal of my case and prosecution were given 15 days to object.

Now a horrible wait
I don't know when judge will reach a decision, especially with holiday season coming up

hi

I definitely don't feel obliged to answer, I enjoy answering, complete difference, and think its nice or you to have something else t read while your confined, but I get what you mean.

glad the court hearing is out the way, one ess thing to think about throughout the process and finger rossed judge reaches some decision soon (albeit holiday season).

sorry quite consumed mentally with my things also (brain not working as good as usual lol), so not going to have much space to think as well as usually and pffer words of support, but I'm allways reading and thinking..
