Introduction. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a software developer and I live in Carmel.

How long have you been studying (or speaking) the Japanese language?

I studied Japanese for three years in college, then took a trip to Japan. Since then I have only sporadically been able to practice speaking, although I continue to listen to Japanese music a lot!

Are you interested in learning to read and write Japanese in addition to learning the spoken language?

Yes, I can read and write hiragana, katakana, and some kanji. When I was in college I could read and write about 300 kanji but sadly I think at this point I'm down to about 50.

Have you ever been to Japan, or are you planning a trip in the future?

I took a two-week trip to Japan in 2004.

What would you most like to get out of this group?

I really just want the opportunity to keep up my Japanese skills by conversing on a regular basis.


I took three years of Japanese in college, but haven't had much opportunity to practice since then (it's been five years). I would love to have a conversation club!
