My conversation partner isI hope I can meet someone who shares my interests and is happy to point out my mistakes. They’ll need to be patient as I am just starting out and I can only say a few basic things at the moment. I hope I can be helpful to them too!
My learning goalsI am working towards taking the JLPT next summer at N5 level. I hope to eventually become fluent in Japanese- though I expect that to take many years. For now I’d settle for being able to hold a short conversation.
My favorite topicsI love talking about books, movies, comics, and games. Im a big fan of the horror genre but I also love sci-fi and fantasy. I’m also very interested in history and art. My favourite period of history is the medieval period.
