Japanese conversation @ Izakaya Sanpei

Sorry for not setting up "Japanese conversation and study session" lately. It has been very busy summer for me so far... I hope everybody is having a good summer. I would like to suggest a next Meetup at a restaurant. Since Sanpei is not open during lunch in the weekend, I am setting this up for Saturday night. Hope you can join!

    I had a fun time! Thank you all for coming. I just uploaded the pictures from last night. I thought they looked pretty good in my iPhone but didn't look as good when I downloaded them to my computer... sorry.

    It was nice to get to know people who speak Japanese in the area. Dinner at a Japanese restaurant was a good idea.

    I'm so glad so many people came out and it was such a wonderful event! My only regret was that I didn't get to speak with everyone! I hope to see everyone's friendly face again next time!!

    The conversation was great. I cannot speak as much as I can understand at the moment. The immersion back into the language was exactly was I was looking for and as the evening went on, I found my language skills (poor as they are at the moment) slowly returning. I had a wonderful conversation with several people and a very enjoyable evening.

    Flora, Misty, Brian & Don, I miss you guys! Justen & Martha, don't worry, I already promised Curtis and Austin (they also can't make it to the dinner) that I will schedule another dinner outing in the future if this turns out to be successful. So, cheer up! :)

    So I've only been to this place once but they have really good Kamo-nabe (duck hot pot). Not sure how expensive it is but if it's not too bad we should consider getting it. :D

    I wanted to.go so badly ;(

    Wow! 24 people are attending! Great! Just let you know that the reservation is under my name, "Hiromi". They said they will put 4-5 tables put together to make a long table for us. Also, I am thinking to (at least try to) put together groups according to Japanese skill levels. For example, beginners can gather one side of the table, intermediate people can sit in the middle, and the advance speakers can sit the other side of the table (I'll try to remember to bring some sort of signs). If you are a native speaker, please choose one of the groups to sit; I would like at least one native speaker sits with each group. Of course, this is just an idea. If, for example, you are coming with somebody, you can sit together anywhere both of you are comfortable. I wanted to try this because I want everybody to be comfortable. I didn't want any beginners to be intimidated by this group, and also want to provide advance speakers "Japanese language-only" speaking environment.

    I called Izakaya Sanpei and requested a waitstaff who can speak Japanese to our table so we can practice ordering food in Japanese. Hopefully the restaurant remembers my request.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
