Hometown: Tokyo, JP
July 29, 2009
I lived there for three years as a kid and LOVED it. Been studying it since.
I *should* be intermediate but have probably dropped to upper beginner. My speaking's really garbled but I understand and read fairly well.
A greater network of friends interested in Japan and speaking partners that won't make me all embarrassed to speak. :)
Got my BA in Japanese Studies and moved out here a few years ago. A good chunk of my Japanese-speaking and Japanese culture-liking friends are either in Japan or about to go back. I don't want to be a homebody. :)
