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.
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.
Intermediate, and I can read and write kana at least, and SOME kanji (but not a lot ^^;;)
I am an assistant organizer of the meetup group [nihonLA] and always happy to meet people interested in Japanese language.
