I have always had a fascination with Japanese culture, both traditional and modern, and would like to travel there one day. One aspect of Japanese culture I am most interested in is the automotive culture. I am a fan of nostalgic (classic) Japanese sports cars and tuning. When in Japan I want to visit the various car museums, racetracks, and tuning shops there. Also, my uncle is Japanese and my cousin is half-Japanese, and learning the language would be a great way to connect with them.
Japanese: Beginner. English: Native.
I would like to attend study group where I can learn conversational Japanese speech, etiquette, and some writing, and also get tips for self-study. It would be cool to teach non-native speakers some English as it was always one of my best subjects in school. The occasional social meet-and-greet for fun with other members would also be nice.
