An intermediate-level learner with an unhealthy fascination with kanji.

Strong dislike for all "One true way to learn Japanese" pronouncements.

comment How should I select what first-person pronoun to use?
There are some issues here with these suggestions. うち can be used where an English-speaker might use a personal pronoun, but the meaning is significantly broader. It's not actually a personal pronoun per-se. It is certainly not "informal", and it is also not entirely "gender-free" (although that depends on context). Do you perhaps mean 'あたい'. おら sounds decidedly masculine and somewhat provincial.

revised How are the different pronunciations of kanji used, such as onyomi and kunyomi?
Trying to restructure the question to make it on-topic.

This question appeared originally to be off-topic as written because it is about methods of learning Japanese rather than the language itself. I've taken a crack at editing into something more on-topic.

comment Who should pay, or not pay, who in this letter written in business Japanese?
I didn't downvote it, I simply made a guess as to why someone might do so.

@DaveMG: This question is very tangled. And frankly, the fundamental question appears to be "please translate this for me". I can certainly understand some users downvoting it on that basis alone. You have at least 2 different questions in here, something that we do try to discourage.
