    If Anyone Needs Help...

    I'll gladly offer some assistance. (: I'm currently taking AP Japanese and I hope to become a part time Japanese teacher(and half time band director, if possible. XD), and I feel that helping out others not only spreads the wonderful language, but I get some review and experience...

    I'm taking a class for it.

    I'm only in the beginning stages of learning Japanese. I'm still learning grammar, sentence structure and conversational stuff. I'm majoring in languages. Japanese is 1 of 6 languages I am learning.

    Christmas Present

    My dad got me a Japanese book and audio thing for Christmas and I really like it! It's really easy to follow and it's got all these little exercises you have to do. And it's a 15 minute a day thing. I'm really bad at sticking with things and seeing them through to the end. I keep...

    So Far...

    I Am Learning, Albeit Slowly

    They don't offer Japanese at my high school, or I would take it there.  Because of this, I am learning it from the internet.  Currently I am memorizing the Hiragana alphabet.
