I find Kanji endlessly amusing. Learning them will never get boring, I think.

comment Difference between 〜げ and 〜そう
Also, if anyone happens to no by any chance: how do you type "づ" on a Mac keyboard? If I have it on hiragana then I can't seem to find it anywhere. "ず" is easy because it's "z-u"...

comment Translation - Long sentence, uncertain of the nuance
I think I'd translate the 気持ち as attitude rather than feelings. "it's not only about how good or bad someone is at doing it, but it's also about what attitude people have who practice it". I'm not sure about how to translate the 問題にしている.

comment Why do some people use 分からない, when they mean 知らない?
It's subtle: If you want to be polite try to use わからない when possible because 知らない implies that you don't care. For example if you're asked "Have you seen my keys?" then it's nicer to say わからない. See for example here for a more detailed explanation. Hope this helps.

@cypher: I suggest that you use my answer as a supplement. Leave it unaccepted and wait for an answer by a native speaker.
