The words we say mean a lot.

I think that’s why I find it necessary for me to not just feel comfortable with writing or reading Japanese…but to really feel natural with everything I’m intending to express.

So while introductions are great, asking where the train station is nifty, and counting to a thousand is handy…the goal is so much more than that.

I will not be illiterate.

I will be understood.

I won’t everr stop learning.
