On my daily routine sitting in front of my computer reading many articles about languages, technology, and entrepreneurship, I usually find interesting subjects to learn.

Задумывались ли вы выучить иностранный язык на другом языке. Это то, что я сейчас делаю. Я учусь несколько иностранных языков на английском языке, который для меня является иностранный язык. В вопросе о неудобство и трудности -я не обнаружил никаких трудностей в изучении других языков на английском языке. Возможно, что английский язык стал почти как мой родной язык.

For example, you can see below how "sun" and "moon" was written in the past and the evolution of it until nowadays. Characters 日 and 月, on far right, are the characters used today.
