How did you become interested in the Japanese language?

My mother is Japanese. She has been a positive influence on me, culturally. All my relatives on my mother's side live in Japan. However, communicating via email and over the telephone has been very difficult without a firm grasp of the language.

What's your fluency level? Newbie? Beginner? Intermediate? Advanced?

I would have to say beginning intermediate.

What would you like to get out of your participation in this group?

Fluency in conversational Japanese by meeting people who are willing to practice Japanese without being embarassed to make mistakes.


Hajimemashite. Doozo yoroshiku. Emi to mooshimasu. I am a nissei, hanbun nihonjin, hanbun chugokujin desu. I am hoping to to improve my Japanese and to meet people like myself, who are interested in the Japanese language and culture. Gambaru!
