Simon has this recurring interest in Japanese, although he is not officially learning it. It began with him learning the whole Katakana alfabet at age 4, all by himself and in just a few days. Ever since then he’s got his relapses. Last Friday he all of a sudden came up with a project to make Japanese number posters. He designed them himself, looking up the “spelling” in both Katakana and Hiragana (it was a lot of work looking for the modified characters).
