こんにちは!アメリカにんでいるまれのです。よりびました。2のときからカリフォルニアにししてってるです。こんなバックグラウンドのせいなのかからがありましてれぬためにも、もっとぶためにもしています。がありましたがはこんなはなくてもバラエティーながらぎりぎりセーフをぎりぎりキープ!みたいなシチュエーションです。ザ!!!DASH!!とTOKIOにしてます。 XDDDD  このサイトをつけたときはほんとにびました。 よろしくおいします! Hello, everyone! I'm Lunalie, a high school senior living in Southern California. I was born in Japan to a Korean family, and we moved to America 9 years ago. I hold interest in languages, and I aim to major in English in college and study East Asian languages as well. Admittedly, Japanese was my first language, even before Korean. After moving to California, however, my Korean developed more as we became involved in our neighborhood Korean community, but my Japanese gradually grew weaker due to lack of practice opportunities (we speak Korean at home). I've (hopefully) been able to maintain my second-grade knowledge, maybe even augment it, over the last few years by watching and enjoying Japanese variety shows, which is not hard to do at all. I've followed The Tetsuwan DASH for the greatest number of years and am still learning from it. I was ecstatic when I discovered this site a few weeks ago! This looks like a great source of tools and a community to help nurture any linguistic endeavor. I'm looking forward to interact and learn with everyone here!

こんにちは。renshuu.orgとameblo.jpではミチバチだ。いつもしたいとうんだ、とrenshuu.orgでする。もう3したが、まだだ。でも、1できなかった。って、のそばがいて、したいとう。でも、いだね? たぶん2く。たちはするので、たちはだね? よろしくおねがいします。 Hello! At renshuu.org and ameblo.jp, I'm michibachi. Since I've always wanted to study Japanese, I'm studying at university and at renshuu.org. I've already been studying for three years, but I'm still bad. I want to go to Japan, be close to my (Japanese) friends, and study Japanese in Japan. But travelling is expensive, isn't it? So probably in 2 years I'll go. We're all studying Japanese together, so we're friends, right? (I'd prefer to say allies, but I don't know how.) I hope you can help me out, and I'll try my best to be of assistance to you. ^^ So far renshuu looks like a really great place to study! I've done a couple quizes over the past few days, and just now I've started my one week trail of renshuu pro. I'm seriously considering buying the six month package, and if anyone would be willing to message me and tell me their (long term) experience and thoughts about renshuu/renshuu pro, I'd be really grateful!

Hello! It seems that I should have said these greetings earlier, but contrary to what I hear about people in general, I appear to be the type that becomes shy and self-conscious in the Internet. Particularly in here, as I'm not a native speaker of neither English and Japanese, and I'm always falling behind in online networks, forums and stuff. Therefore, in advance I say sorry for any inconvenience that I may cause (or have already caused) here. I'm Brazilian, and currently I'm studying philosophy at university. My interest in Japanese language started as a curiosity born with anime and manga in my childhood, but now I'm really into their culture as I began to practice brush calligraphy (shodou). The city where I live and was born, São Paulo, concentrate the largest number of Japanese outside Japan, so we have a very traditional way of teaching the language here, which attracts many people who are not descendants as well. However, I believe that as this tradition did not born to meet the needs of foreigners, but to students that grow up speaking the language at home, the barrier between such different languages is not overcame yet. I feel from the materials available in schools, and even among those who study Japanese at university, that something very serious hinders us non-Japanese in this road of learning. I have almost 5 years of study already; the same amount of regular students of Japanese Language at university, and we struggle to keep up a conversation about any serious matter, or to write a good text. Then, looking for help in the Internet, I found out Renshuu.org, and here I am, truly happier. I find these tools very good for studying, and to know the site is getting even better fills me with hopes. I've been asked to participate in the upgrading of the small details that users can do, and I could not refuse, as I'm very grateful for having this to add to my studies. Even so that I'm not good with these interfaces, neither with the lots of info in the site and forums (in which I fear a lot to raise questions already raised - even in a three-years past), let alone handle all this on my own deficiencies of both English and Japanese languages. Finally, after this long presentation, I want to thank you all again for this wonderous thing, and though I might be a low profile guy, I look forward for the future in here with you all =)

Studying: JLPT N1
Level: 1, : 199
Hello! I'm not exactly a 'new' member, so I suppose I should have done this earlier but... I started studying Japanese just on a whim - my studies weren't too demanding that year in college and I seemed to have a lot of free time. I love learning languages, so I decided to take it up. I chose Japanese because I wanted to learn something completely different from anything else. And then I fell in love with the language before I knew it. I gave the JLPT and passed N5, N4 and N3 with six months of study each. Right now I'm studying for N2 and plan on taking the exam in July next year. I came to know about Renshuu.org when my sensei mentioned it, and it's seriously been the biggest help. I can't imagine how I would've studied all my vocab and kanjis without it. At the very least it provides me a reason to study every day. :) Looking forward to learn more with everyone here!

I just found this website and have already loved it a lot. It's actually quite "addictive" :-) I tried JLPT N4 few weeks ago, but I think it's too difficult for me (I started studying Japanese on my own 8 months ago). If I fail this time, I'd probably do it again in July.

After I think...1 week of using the main site, I've finally decided to get myself involved in the forums :) Prior to this, I've never heard of things like JLPT or Kanji Kentei before. I was just looking for a site to extend my Japanese vocabulary a bit (which means a lot). I'm glad I found renshuu.org :) I'm mostly self-studying Japanese on the Net. I thought I could take it up as a course in my university but due to complications, I couldn't. So I'm stuck learning it on my own...

Hi everyone,I sould have introduced myself as the first thing on this forum,but I found this topic only now :-[ My name is Marco,I am a 24 years old Italian guy with a big passion for videogames (not sure if is passion or if I am addicted... ;D) In fact,when I think of me in the future,I can only picture myself doing something game related,in the specific I would like to be a 3d Artist & work on the 3d side of videogames.For achieve that I start long ago doing 3d as an hobby,I never have followed a course or school but I think I've already achieved some decent resoults,you can see them here http://marcusaseth.carbonmade.com/projects/3711568#1 ,some of my old 3d models :) But I put that dream on hold & placed 2 other dreams before it eheh :) The first one is to learn a basic Japanese,enough to be able to follow a Jap videogame or manga or anime without the need of a translation or subtitles - & this I am pretty sure is the easyest of my dreams :) The second dream is the hardest of the 3,& maybe I decided to start with the Japanese to test my resolution on doing/learning something,so Japanese is like a warming up for this one: Learning to Draw ;D That achievment is so big that is even scary only to think about it,but I am sure one day I will be working seriously on it :) The third one is the easiest of the 3,- becoming a 3d Artist & working inside the industry at some videogame.Is the easiest because I have already the skill to start somewhere as junior 3d artist if only I want,& I could learning & improving while working ( as a friend of mine is doing already).But,when you start that work seriously you don't have time for anything else,if I do it pretty much is like giving up on learning to draw,I am stubborn & I don't want that to happen,I MUST learn it ;D Learning how to draw could take even 5-10 years of training,so I count on you guys to help me to speed up the japanese language so that I can focus on the real priority as soon as possible! ;)

Hello friends, I am from India and learning Japanese from past 10 months. Passed N5 last December and taking N4 this coming July and also preparing for Kanji kentei next month. When I was looking for guidance for Kanji Kentei I stumbled upon this site and love it! Especially very helpful in learning Kanji with step-by-step guidance. Still have to explore this site more and learn more. 0:)

Technically, I'm not a new member. I joined around December and started drilling kanjii immedetly. I was dilligent. But for some reason, I tohught I'm not doing good enough and that what I'm doing is pointless. Lost osme self esteem and gave up early february. But man, now that I come back I'm actually amazed at how well I did. Appearntly, I mastered 564 kanjii in less then two months. I don't know what the hell was wrong with me back then when I mocked my self for being too slow, but I'm over it. I'm back, and ready to drill! Because I didn't introduce myself back then, I might just do so now. I'm 19 year old shut-in who has exclipt interest in all the stuff that makes up for contemprorary Japanese culture. That is, mainly, games and anime. However, it is a little bit troublesome since many games and VNs are never translated and watching anything with subtitles kills a bit of expereince. Therefore, I want to learn Japanese, at least in reading, ASAP and proceed to recive thier ficiton as it was meant to be recieved. Unlike previously I'm also willing to check out the site's other features. Origianlly I wanted to learn all kanji before proceeding to grammar and vocabulary but maybe it was a mistake, it's good to have some diversity. And, that's it. Hope I will not screw up this time.

I just discovered this site today. It looks like it will be really useful for studying for the JLPT1. I was wondering if anyone knew of a site like http://newsinslowjapanese.com/ but a little bit higher level. It's been very useful so far, but I was hoping to find something a little higher level. Any suggestions?

Hello everyone, I've been studying Japanese for roughly two years now, and I think this website will help me get even more proficient. I currently live and study in Tokyo, but I'll be leaving after the summer, and will have to use the internet alone for my studies. I hope becoming proficient in Japanese won't take quite as long as it took for English, though, I have more languages I want to learn. :P

I as well, am not a "new" member. Though I am fairly new to the forums. I joined Renshuu at some point before the end of 2012. I am a senior in high school. I've been studying completely alone since 7th grade. My teachers have been the books I have slowly collected or frequently borrow from the nearest public library. Last year, I started teaching what I know to a friend one year behind me. We sort of study after school these days. I struggle with Japanese grammar, due to having nobody to practice with, and nobody to correct me when I get things wrong. One of the first things I learned to write in Japanese is my nickname in Katakana. After that, I learned most of the kana, though, さ and ちstill confuse me. The same goes for ツ and シ, ソ and ン. I'm pretty good at memorizing Kanji. I have memorized most of the 160 that are in the Kanji de manga books (Volumes 1 and 2 anyway. Each volume has 80 kanji). I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere in Wisconsin. The only thing I find interesting about this part of Wisconisn is that I live near a town called Rice Lake. Rice Lake has a sign when you're entering the town that says "Sister City: Miharu, Japan" Miharu is in the Fukushima Prefecture. I go by many names, here, I am Natsuu121, which is the romaji of the katakana that would be used to make my usual online usernames "Natoo121". When I am studying Japanese with my friend who I started studying with last year, I use a name from the book that we study from. That name is  . In lesson 2 of that book, it asks the reader to choose a given name, and a family name. There are 24 family names, 12 male given names, and 12 female names to choose from. My hobbies include reading, watching anime, playing video games, and biking when the weather is nice. I hope to be able to eventually read and understand enough Japanese to be able to read a Japanese newspaper that a friend gave me. (Though, by the time I am able to read that much, the news from that paper will be at least a year old.

Hey all, I have been studying Japanese at a slow pace for the past 3 years but I now have a job teaching English at the base of Mt. Fuji. I felt the need to kick my studying into overdrive. I searched around the internet for websites and this is by far the best one I found. I don't have a formal teacher so it is kind of rough. I told my teacher from 2 years ago about this site and I guess she is making her class join. I guess more people are on their way here.

Hello everyone! I have been styudying japanese for a while too, but quite slow to be honest. My dream is to be able to convey my feelings and thoughts in this beautiful language as well as I do in English (Did you guess that my mother tongue is not english? hahahahah). As someone said before, since we are all learning japanese I consider we have some sort of special connection,we are japanese buddies, I guess? よろしくおいします!
