How well can you speak Japanese?

Reasonably well, but 'shinu made benkyoo shinakute wa ikemasen."

How many times have you visited Japan? When was the last time you were there?

I've visited Japan 5 times. I first went to Japan in 1983 and stayed for one and a half years as an English teacher, for one year in Tsu-shi, Mie-ken and for six months in Nagoya. I also began to study Japanese at that time. I have gone back to visit in 1994, to study in 1996, and to see friends, absorb the influence, speak the language, travel around, eat yummy food, etc. in 2000 and 2004. I am way overdue for a return visit. Someday, someday...


I teach Japanese at Case Western Reserve University and heard about the group via e-mail from two of my former students, Dan and Brendan. I like to keep up on local Japan-related groups and events, so that I can pass on the information to my students

What Peggy F. is saying about this Meetup Group

A nice group of people, eager to learn and help others to learn Japanese and about Japanese culture.
