Why are you studying Japanese? What sparked your interest? What motivates you? What are your goals? Tell me your WHY
I fell in love with Japanese in high school while reading manga, and later through watching anime. I will confess, I thought my boyfriend (now husband) was such a nerd for anime and I thought anime was so weird Jokes on me, anime is so awesome.
I began studying Japanese in college and really wanted to study abroad. My school had a program to go to Kyoto or Tokyo, but sadly, the school got bought out and reformed and I ended up dropping out and getting married.
Now, I study with Genki and WK some 15 years later. My why is that I love the language, and it makes me happy. I don’t know what I’ll actually DO with it, like professionally, but I am looking forward to reading native literature and understanding anime and j-dramas subtitle free. I also would love to teach my 3 kids and then speak with them, but that feels really daunting. I have no idea how to teach this language to my little kiddos.
So, how about you?
