I will be reserving this forum for our Japanese Language lessons. Currently, I am still looking for a mod - a sensei - who would be patient and kind enough to share with us his/her knowledge of nihonggo. If any of you is interested, go to the forums and read on the qualifications and tasks for this job, ONEGAISHIMASU..

For now, while the sensei is still out, group study MINNA!!! If you happen to know a bit of Japanese, please don't be shy to lead the group...
