What's your favourite Japanese food?

I like too many to choose a fave. A few that spring to mind though would be; Chicken karaage Mabo Tofu Ramen Sashimi Nabe Plus many more

How did you become interested in Japan and its language?

My ex-gf of eight is Japanese so have of course picked up lots of info from her. My main interest is learning Japanese as a language which to my regret was something I haven't pursued as much as I could of. I also enjoy watching Sumo.

What is your level of proficiency with spoken and written Japanese?

I have a basic knowledge and probably understand more than I can speak. Seemingly I know lots of words but not how to string them together to make sentences. I can read Hiragana, most Katakana but only recognize a few Kanji.

What do you hope to achieve through your membership with this group?

Hopefully to learn tips from others who have learned a new language and to be able practice a few things that I learn. And combining that with yummy food.
