What's your favourite Japanese food?

Tonkatsu, especially from my favorite restaurant in Hokkaido. Also, any kind of noodles.

How did you become interested in Japan and its language?

Used to take aikido (for seven years). LONG ago! Also used to teach Suzuki piano.

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

I can order lunch, ask for directions and generally get around. Cannot discuss philosophy and politics. I am better at speaking than understanding a native speaker. I used to know hiragana and katakana, but have forgotten a lot. I can count on one hand the number of kanji I know.

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

Get a chance to practice conversational Japanese in Vancouver, while my husband and daughter are off skiing! Make new friends!


I've been teaching myself Japanese by listening to Pimsleur CD's; now on Level III, Lessn 11-12. Been to Japan three times. The last time was two weeks before the tsunami of 2011. I live in Hawaii and come to Vancouver frequently.
