Skype study buddy for nihongo beginners ^_^

Postby mrhads » November 20th, 2012 11:43 pm

Konichiwa minasan! :D

I am also a beginner in nihongo just like many of you are!
Although I am currently attending face to face japanese class twice a week for the past 2 months, the summer holiday has just begun here in Australia so recently I've been spending some time outside the class to study online materials.
I am more than happy to review/ share knowledge/ resources / just chat about anything to do with Japan with people who are in the same boat as I am.

I prefer to communicate via Skype messenger (my addie is michael_hads) pls add me if you are interested ^^

Mike

I'd probably be interested in joining this skype study group if you'll have me. I need all the speaking practice I can get.

Konnichiwa! Hajemimashita, watashi no namae wa Tim desu, yuroshiku onegaishimasu.
Watashi no kokuseki wa Igurisu jin desu.

Pleased to meet you all. I'd like to study on Skype too, please - I'm up to beginner lesson 30 and would like to talk a bit in Japanese.

Currently I live in the Shiga prefecture in Japan - near Kyoto. I've been living here for 9 months, but I don't often get a chance to try out my Japanese much unless it's at a party!

Tim (skype handle is tstim67)
