I am Dana. I am retired from work. Now I like to work around my house, cook, read, travel, and watch movies and sports.
In 2019 my wife and I had two Japanese students stay with us for 3 weeks. They came to an English program at a local university. So now I am learning to speak some Japanese and I hope to visit Japan someday. I have been studying Japanese for about 2 years but do not feel I have progressed much.
I would like to find a Language Exchange partner that could help me learn Japanese with beginning conversations and short written messages. I am interested in daily life and Japanese cooking. I also want to help you with English and increase your comfort and confidence in speaking it. I find that many Japanese know English well, but need practice and confidence in speaking. I can talk with you in English and make suggestions on what what sounds more natural and answer other questions about the language.
