How well can you speak, read, write or understand Japanese?

I fall somewhere in the intermediate level, having taken a college course and worked out of self-teaching books and audio for several years now.

What about Japan or Japanese culture interests you?

I want to be able to communicate in Japanese, make new friends, and enjoy reading my favorite Japanese authors in the original.

Have you ever been to Japan? Where? If not, is there an area that you'd like to visit?

Not yet. Would love to visit Kyoto, Okinawa, and Hokkaido.


A language fanatic whose goal is to teach Japanese language and literature at a college level. (I'm the tall pale one in the photo at right). I would love to live in Japan for an extended period of time to work on my fluency.
