Japanese skill level

I am in a sort of strange beginner/intermediate mixed place right now. I am self-taught, so certain simple concepts I have trouble with, but I have much better comprehension of other things.

English skill level

Completely fluent...been learning this one for a long time, going on a 33rd year.


I love to learn Japanese. I am a hardcore immersion addict, so I spend lots of time watching anime (mostly), watching movies, and playing games in Japanese (all always without the subtitles). I try to avoid translation like the plague (maybe too much, sometimes). Anyway, it works...gradually. Beyond that, I also like to sing and take long walks around the city (not usually at the same time)...and dabble occasionally with computer programming and writing.


Hello. I am a lover of the Japanese language, and have been teaching myself (through my own little half-crazed but enjoyable immersion scheme) for some time now. I'm hoping to meet some people who share my interests.
