So the grammar is quite formalised?
imo moreso than in english but like in any other language people have managed to change things around and make it more difficult for those of us who aren't native speakers. also the particles are a lot simpler than kanji so writing them is a nice little break.
also i know japanese, not chinese, however japanese uses chinese characters plus two other sets of characters.
