Yes. I studied Nihongo formally for about 2 years. I studied it on my own off and on for about 2 years before then.
I would like to practice speaking Japanese with other speakers. I'd like to have linguistic and cultural exchanges with native Japanese speakers.
I wanted to be a member of a group where people of all skill levels could practice the Japanese language/writing and have cultural exchanges in a relaxed atmosphere.
The meetups are successes. We are able to practice speaking and listening skills, learn from each other's experiences, socialize, and have fun. Anyone interested in having a good time while learning nihongo should definitely attend.
