Hello!

Postby joques » Thu 06.16.2005 5:20 pm

I am a Norwegian, just starting out learning Japanese, and I'm just starting to realize how alien and complicated this language is!

So why am I doing it? Well, I work as a translator, which means I am interested in languages. Though I'm not deluding myself that I can learn Japanese well enough to translate it anytime soon, or even ever. I've just always been fascinated by Japanese culture, and of course films and anime. Right now it's more of a hobby project than anything else, but we'll see where it takes me eventually.

Anyway, this site seems like just what the doctor ordered. Looking forward to get to know you guys!
