I'm a high school senior finishing up the year... So i have decided to continue studying Japanese as a hobby :D

I am proficient in Chinese as well as english, but my focus for the future will mainly be in Mathematics and Engineering.

comment At what level should we be able to understand Yojijukugo?
Well, the extended question I wanted to ask was more along the lines of "At what age does the Japanese population comprehend and utilize Yojijukugo?"

comment Which readings would you use to pronounce people's names?
Yes, I do! The question came up when I encountered "日下部", which rikaichan deduced as Hikabu. Doing some searching online, I was perplexed that the "correct" pronunciation was Kusakabe. I guess names really are mostly memorization...

Thank you for contributing your explanation. Although istrasci did give a very detailed answer, I wanted another person's opinion regarding how they would answer the question; that's why i did not immediately accept his answer. (Sorry!) By the way, one of the reasons I asked this question was because of the lack of furigana on online japanese newspapers i tried to make sense of.
