After a long haitus from Textfugu I’m back with a vengence to work hard and learn Japanese! I’ve actually made this post before, but I’ve been away for so long I thought I should start fresh.
I’m Calvin, former music student turned IT professional (don’t worry I still love music). Sinve grafuating college and entering adulthood a lot has changed; moved cross country, got married, totally about face in professional aspirations. What hasn’t changed is my love for Japan and the Japanese language.
So without further ado, here is why I want to learn Japanese:
I want to visit Japan one day, stay at a ryokan and be able to habe a complete convetsation with my host.
<liI love playing and making video games. Id love to play more Japanese games with Japanese speakers
I want to read Japanese poetry and historical texts in their original language
I want to watch Japanese films without relying on subtitles
I want to make Japanese speaking friends
I want to beter appreciate the culture through understanding the language
I agree with Joel! If it wasn’t for the media exposure I would probably have no interest in Japanese culture. There is absolutely nothing wrong with trying to build a deeper understanding through media. Don’t sell yourself short :)
