    Keep studying and concentrate 1 language each time will help you learn much faster and better .
    I haven't decided whether to continue with Japanese (having had 1 year of that in high school) or Arabic (two semesters @ UMBC). If I end up not being able to remember 2,136 "Joyo Kanji" characters, then I'll return to Arabic. It's between Arabic and Japanese, then.

    Haven't played Conspiracy, no. But I've never won a game of Diplomacy. I got up to 12 centers as Russia in the last game and then it went all downhill. Only reason I got that far was because Austria and Turkey decided to screw around and then walk away from the game at one point.

    Familiar with "Republic of Rome"? Or "Junta"?

    Continuing any of the 2 would help you either way. Knowing both is even better

    Oh that is unlucky, I have won quite a few games before. Can't remember how many but I remember I won one as Germany. My allies were Italyand France, which I betrayed them before they gained more centers than me heh.

    Nope, never heard of those two games

    That's awesome, dude (about screwing over Italy and France).

    Republic of Rome simulates the mechanics of republican Roman politics, particularly within the Senate. It's a really neat game. As far as Junta, it simulates the politics of a banana republic, and you try to get elected president and embezzle the most foreign aid.

    JMO but learning the Joyo Kanji separate from everything else is a complete waste of time. Learn the meaning of Kanji as you learn vocabulary, which you should learn, largely, from reading stuff that interests you and isn't overly difficult given your current level of fluency.
