How did you become interested in the Japanese language?

I went to High School in Japan so it was rather necessary to learn Japanese...

What's your fluency level? Newbie? Beginner? Intermediate? Advanced?

I speak native-level Japanese.

What would you like to get out of your participation in this group?

I want to make friends and connections and to help people studying Japanese with their studies.


My name is Barrett and I formerly taught Japanese and comparative culture at the University of the Pacific. I also make educational apps for smartphones as well as printed materials. Check out my textbooks!­kakehashi
