How well can you speak, read, write or understand Japanese?

Well, I am still quite a novice. I am still learning lots of vocabulary. I am just learning some grammer to put together sentences properly. I have learned Hiragana and Katakana and can read them both. I have not started on Kanji yet.

What about Japan or Japanese culture interests you?

The beauty and history of Japan. The rich legends,tales,stories and rituals they have. The reasons for the ways things are done and why they exist. The mysteries that surround the medical types of practices.

Have you ever been to Japan? Where? If not, is there an area that you'd like to visit?

I have never been there but am determined to go with my daughter. I am studying the language and cultural things to be better educated when we finally get there. We wish to go to Tokyo,Sapporo, and surrounding areas. I want to ride the bullet train.


I am a 49yr. old mother of 2. My daughter is 20 yrs. old She and I are studying Japanese to visit Japan someday. She wants to teach English in Japan. She is currently enrolled in Japanese 101 and I have the same text books and study with her.

What Cindy L. is saying about this Meetup Group

My daughter and I went to the Aug. 30th meetup. It was fun and educational. I have much to learn. The 2 different teachers were very friendly and completely knowledgeable, both being native speakers. I can't wait for the next one. If you have an interest in the language you should definitely join us!
