How well can you speak Japanese?

I haven't been using my Japanese speaking ability in a long time, so I am kind of rusty. My listening is better than my speaking, and I definitely need work on writing kanji. I am always willing to practice my Japanese but am afraid of speaking incorrectly or impolitely. I've been told that I had developed an accent "Osaka-ben". I love Japanese music, my favorite is B'z and X-Japan. Avid anime watcher and lov3 Japanese food and culture. Please stop in and say hello!

How many times have you visited Japan? When was the last time you were there?

I lived in Japan for two years while studying at Osaka International University (Nagao-prefecture, Osaka). The ladder part of the two years I lived in Ibaraki.


Hello everyone, my name is Scott. I studied Japanese at Ohio State University and also Osaka International University. SInce then I haven't used my Japanese and it has become very rusty. Looking forward to meeting all of you! Yoroshiku!
