Japanese is probably the most difficult language

I know that this kind of thing can be the source of discouragement or pride for someone, but in a small way it is an encouragement for me. Many times I feel a failure because I've not managed to become competent in this language. God has graciously given me other roles that don't need Japanese competency, but I still live here and wish every day that more Japanese language would stick in my head.

The Foreign Service Institute (FSI) says Japanese is the most difficult of the most difficult languages for English speakers to learn. FSI is where the US trains their diplomats as well as other professionals who are engaged in foreign affairs.
