I'm kinda curious how long it takes to speak a little bit in Japanese.
I'm a beginner with Japanese and only can read, write and speak 150 Japanese words. And that already took me a few months.. :cry:
I'm kinda curious about the advanced speakers how long it took to be on that kind of level.

How long it takes to be able to speak "a little bit" of Japanese depends on how you define "a little bit" :). It doesn't take 150 words to order something at a restaurant.

As for advanced level, there's been a similar discussion here: https://jref.com/forum/learning-jap...take-you-reach-advanced-level-japanese-54541/

In short, it takes many years, but that's to be expected - learning a new language is a huge task, even more so if it's as foreign as Japanese. Keep your motivation in mind and don't let impatience get the better of you.
