Hi! I'm Mary! (and yes, I know some textbooks put my name as メアリー and not メリー, but it's just as good to me!). I am from Seattle. I am 25 years old and a lady.
I have studied Japanese off and on for the past couple years, but have only seriously been studying the past month or so. I studied German in high school. I even spent 5 months in Germany in my junior year of High School. However, I also had a slight interest in Japanese (which was taught in my high school, but I went for the least popular, romaji language).
My interest stems from manga *かああああああ * but because of it, I grew a large appreciation for Japanese culture and language. In the past couple years, I've grown a love for Japanese dramas (as well as Korean and Taiwanese dramas!) and for J-Pop (particularly KAT-TUN, but I enjoy a few others too! I want to listen to more j-pop). My favorite drama is Gokusen (hence where I learned about KAT-TUN and consequently CARTOON KAT-TUN).
友達になりたい！I would love to make friends with people here and learn Japanese together. I'm a "super" beginner, because I'm not really a beginner but I'm not really intermediate.

Welcome to TJP!
Actually your name is one of the first foreign names learned in mandarin language books too (玛丽-Mǎlì), along with John (约翰-Yuēhàn) and Martin (马丁-Mǎdīng).
was this information really relevant?↑
