Total novice, even though my father was born and raised in Japan... He insists that if he had taught my sister and I Japanese while we were growing up, his English would be totally intelligible! :)
A recent trip back to Japan - Tokyo, Okinawa, and Kyoto - has renewed my love of all things Japanese, including the language itself! I'm still just barely learning to speak Japanese, but I'd love to meet people to practice with!
