Hey all.? My name is John Polson.? I am just moving to Boston this July to begin a master's program in Computational Linguistics at Brandeis.? I plan on taking the 2-kyuu this December for proof that I can read Japanese.? I would love to help some people with Japanese or English and work on some computer programming issues or projects to learn together!? I do not need to gain computer programming experience using Japanese, I just thought I would throw that out there as a trade-off.? I would like to start learning/using, Java, Perl and Python since I will be using those three mainly in my classes and career.? I would be happy to spend some time in Waltham near Brandeis or Boston (downtown or somewhere "T" friendly)?getting internship experience, paid or otherwise.
I look forward to meeting new people and sharing interests!!
