Hey there! :) Nice to meet you! ^^ How do you feel about Japan? :D Is it a great country to live in, or are there any problems with being a Gaijin in Japan? How was your experience? :)

How do you feel about Japan? - It's so complicated question for me because I'm scared of breaking your dreams about "Japan." I think this country is not so better than "Japan" you are dreaming...although I'm not you so I don't know exactly what are you feeling, Is it a great country to live in, or are there any problems with being a Gaijin in Japan? How was your experience? - It's hard for me to answer too because I need to tell you about racial values as entire Japanese people (not as myself). If you are from North america, Europe, Russia, or something like that, you won't feel discomfort in Japan.But you had better learn easy Japanese and English because most of Japanese think "being international" as "being English available". But if you are Chinese or Korean, I'm sorry to tell you that you might meet someone hate your country. Of course there are many people consider your race as something they don't care, and of course I'm one of them, but the number of people who don't feel comfortable with Chinese or Korean is larger than that of other country, I think. (I've lived in only Fukushima, a countryside prefecture, since I was born, so my explanation might be wrong in other part of Japan, but I think I'm not giving you wrong information. Thank you.

Thanks for the info! ^^ Haha, dreams about 'Japan' I had before are already broken since I've started studying Japanese at my university :D My sensei has lived in Japan herself so she told us not everything is so colourful as they show us in the anime x) And it is only natural, cause neither USA is as colourful as cartoons show xD

I'm from Georgia, the border of Europe and Asia :) I'm always interested in different cultures, and that is why I asked that question ^^ I do like Japanese culture, but I doubt I could ever settle in that country myself :) For that only culture love is not enough. But having Japanese friends - why not? ^^

That's great news! 'Cause some Japanese learners said there were few teachers.
Good luck!

I'm not sure that I can be a good teacher because I'm also learner or student as you, but I try to communicate to improve our skills as long as I can:) (Translation in Japanese→)私もあなたと同じ学習者,生徒だから,私が良い先生になれるかわかりませんが,私たちのスキルをできるだけ上達させられるよう,できるだけ頑張ってコミュニケーションをとります(^_^)

Altさん
学者 (学習者)でも、日本語知識のあるユーザーが一人増えて助かる学者 (学習者)も多いと思います。日本語の学者(学習者)として日本人と話し合う機会があるのはありがたいことです。これから色々お世話になると思いますが、よろしくお願いします。

よろしくお願いします! 文法をよく勉強されていますね。 早速ですが一つお教えすると,「学習者」のほうが「学者」よりも適切だと思います。「学者」は「研究者」の意味に近いです。大学やその他の場所で専門的に学んでいるのであれば「学者」,学習を始めたところだったり学習の最中だったりするのならば「学習者」です。 Nice to meet you! You have studied Japanese grammar very well, I think. Excuse me to get straight to the point, but I have something to tell you. In your reply, "学習者" is more appropriate than "学者" because "学者" is close to "研究者(researcher/scholar)" in its meaning. If you are studying professionally in collage or somewhere and you attend some learned society, you are "学者". And if you are on the way to learn and be accustomed to something, you are "学習者."

See? that's what I'm talking about. You being here will help not only beginners learn proper Japanese, but intermediate and advanced ones to fine-tune their word and grammar usage. I think you will be a very helpful member in this community.
