I finally started Japanese class! Goal: to, at the very least, be able to communicate in a way a native would understand. I’m kind of tired of displaying the deer-in-headlights look! I want to know what everyone is saying! At the market, the train station, the school. The church I’ve been going to offers free lessons every Sunday, so I decided to take advantage of it. During the class, I wasn’t sure if I’d learn much – you get what you pay for right? – but it’s worth a shot.
