I started learning Japanese at college in 2005 and have been an enthusiast ever since. I fan-translate Japanese light novels to keep my skills sharp.

comment Why is it 日本語がわかります instead of 日本語をわかります?
No, because 知る isn't knowing--it's finding something out. 知っている is the state of having found something out--i.e. knowing it.
