How many years have you studied Japanese and in what form? (eg. in class or on your own)

15 years total. About 4 years in university classes, a little over 1 year in Japan, and 2 years online. The rest have been self study.

What made you decide to start learning Japanese?

I originally wanted to be an animator and work in Japan.

Do you have the opportunity to use Japanese in your daily life (family, work, etc)?

I work for a Japanese company as an interpreter so I spend my work days using Japanese.


I work as a Japanese interpreter and translator for a company in Columbus. I have to use Japanese at work everyday, but I would like to meet other learners and talk about more interesting things.
