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

Yes, I do. But, very limited. Yes, I want to learn more. No, I don't think I am ready.

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

I read a newspaper article a few years ago, and it mentioned the old Japanese use paper fan as an instruction tool to instruct their army during war time. But, I am not 100% sure! Can someone please verify if it is part of their culture?

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

There are 3 reasons: 1) I am always amazed by their abilities to recover after WWII 2) I love their cultural food, and 3) Most their older generation don't speak other languages, it is better to learn it in case I have to communication with them.

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

Yes, if it is within my abilities. No, if I don't have time. Maybe, if I am in a bad mood.

__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 am Katherine. I am from Hong Kong, and Japanese is not a new language to me. I actually had to speak a little Japanese in order to communicate with my customers while I was working in Hong Kong. But, my Japanese language skill is very limited...

What Katherine K is saying about this Meetup Group

Nice group. It will be better if it is more organized for the beginners : )
