I'm forgetting more and more Japanese by the day, but I have a pretty solid foundation. I'd like to clean up my grammar, expand my base of colloquial expressions, and improve my fluency. I'd be happy to teach and learn.
I have lots of stories. Sometimes I think I spent the best years of my life in Japan.
Japanese language and culture completely opened my mind. I kind of "grew up" in Japan in that it was where I became an adult. It was a magical place to go though the mundane rites of passage that usher in adulthood, and I love it for that.
Sure. I'd love to help plan special events.
I think I've done this through Facebook.
I spent four years living in Japan, two on Miyakojima and two on mainland Okinawa. I spent three of those years in the JET program, traveling around to eight schools on three different tiny islands. I miss it very much and still dream in Japanese.
I'm so impressed and happy to have found people who love Japanese and want to come together to share the language.
