What's your interest in Japan(ese)?

Well I've always enjoyed learning Japanese, and it's fun to meet others who are learning and to get to practice. I always enjoy practicing Japanese with native speakers at the weekly meetups, and it's always fun to meet people you have that in common with.

What do you hope to get out of The OC Japanese Meetup?

Everything really, definitely improving my Japanese is always a goal I have, and I like to socialize with people too. It's interesting if I learn more about the culture too of course. That usually goes hand in hand with learning new words, since language and culture are tied together. I'd like to meet more Japan enthusiasts, practice Japanese, and make friends. Likewise, I hope I can provide something useful to the group dynamic.

What level of Japanese do you speak? Can you read & write in Japanese also?

Intermediate, and I can read and write kana at least, and SOME kanji (but not a lot ^^;;)

Have you read the Rules for Membership listed on the Pages tab on our home page and agree to abide by them?

Yes
