In core, we learned that Japan had to borrow ideas from Korea and China. One of those ideas that I think is the most important was Japan borrowing the Chinese writing system. Japan had no writing system when and had to borrow it from the Chinese. They started to realize how each character means something. Without the Chinese writing system, they wouldn't know what to say.
    What I learned was how Japan thrived using the Chinese writing system. The Japanese also borrowed other things from China. They borrowed their language. It was even the official language of Japan. After that they developed their own language and stopped using the Chinese language.
