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

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

comment Q: Should a new Japanese learner stop reviewing Chinese Hanzi?
Welcome to the site. A question of this type can generate many interesting responses. Unfortunately it is very difficult to establish factual, canonical answers to questions of this type, and as such we try to avoid them here on JL. As a general rule, the entire category of how do I study questions are generally marked as "offtopic".

comment Should I speak in the local dialect and/or accent of an area?
This question is fundamentally about "should I", rather than "how does the language work". It might be a good question for travel or expats, but is offtopic for this site. Alternatively, it could be closed as "primarily opinion-based", given that the request is for people to guess the reactions from (non-specified) native speakers to a foreigner (of non-specific skill) emulating a local accent, and then give advice (of non-specified purpose) for how to proceed.
