I am new to Japanese Language stack exchange and a beginner at learning Japanese too.
I have recently gotten a Japanese penpal who is lovely. I want to send her a message but I am having trouble getting across my meaning with these sentences:
What I am trying to do here is apologise for mostly writing to her in hiragana. But it looks like I'm just apologising for the existence of hiragana, or something... How can I explain that I'm sorry about using my hiragana in my penpal messages?
This is the next sentence:
I'm trying to say my skills at kanji are not good, but again I don't think I'm getting the right meaning across here. How would I say this?
I would really appreciate it if you could include romaji in your answer.
