I'm English by birth, 72, and been in Japan 26 years... never studied Japanese formally, but there isn't really anything I can't do in (spoken) Japanese... literacy skills are another thing entirely.
since coming here in middle age, I learned Japanese pretty-much as children do, that's to say, by listening, and by trial-and-error, so any answers I offer here are not based on a formal study of grammar, but on everyday Japanese.
