Do I speak Japanese?__ seriously want to learn?__ want to teach?__

I speak Japanese conversationally.

Do I have a favorite Japanese culture story that I want to tell you?

My name is Yong... in Japan they called me YonGU... I hated the GU at the end of my name so I went my my last name, Lee, and now that I am back in the states, I still go by Lee because it's easier...

Why?... Yes! Why am I interested in the culture and language of the people of Japan?

Because I lived in the countryside of Japan for 4 years teaching English under the JET Programme.

Will I help our Group as an Assistant Organizer, or a special event's Guest Organizer? Maybe__ No__ Yes__


__Yes, I have completed my Profile page and posted my modest passport-style ID photo to MAKE NEW FRIENDS faster & help all of you to find ME quick at our events. :)



I lived in Hokkaido (just outside of Sapporo) for four years. I didn't speak a lick of Japanese before living there, but now can get by pretty well. Now that I am back in NYC, I really would hate to lose my JP abilities.
