My name is Andrew and I’m currently a University student.
I study Media and Communications and English Language. I’m British and have studied Japanese for 3 years achieving ‘A*’ at GCSE and ‘A’ at A Level for the subject. I began learning in May of 2008, independently. In November of that same year (beginning of year 11) I was lucky enough that the head teacher of Perryfields brought in a Japanese tutor to provide me and a friend with lessons, once a week after school. I loved it and still do, so this site is a chance both for me to revise and to help upcoming Japanese learners and enthusiasts.
I also have a lot of interest in the country of Japan in general, so you will find in this blog more general posts as well as language tips.
I was lucky enough to spend 3 weeks in Kyoto, volunteering at a nursery, kindergarten and elementary school. You can find posts about my experiences under the page ‘My Japan Diaries’ above.
I hope you find my site helpful, or at the very least enjoyable!
