Wannabe Japanese Readers club.
Hi everyone. I can't find rules about posting about clubs so I hope this isn't offensive. I have learned Japanese off and on for several years and some recent life changes have made me more motivated to start over fresh after a hiatus of one year or two.
I am mainly (re)learning Japanese to play Japanese video games and to read mangas that are not popular enough to ever be translated into English for the United States (where I live). I do not plan to live in Japan or to be able to fluently speak the language, although I would like to visit the country someday. So my own focus on being able to read the language for my personal enjoyment is why I have a readers' club.
If you have similar goals, you are welcome to join my club via your mobile app. The name of the club is Wannabe Japanese Readers and the code is PAFZ93. I have experienced inactive and boring clubs in Duolingo, so as soon as the weekly leader board for that club resets and I have a minute, I will remove people at 69 XP or below to encourage new and active members. Not this week, of course, since there is only one day left for the leader board. :-) I have been at 350 XP weekly since joining Duolingo and maintaining that level is easier than most people think (and I work full time).
Thank you for your time and interest! :-D
Hi Michaela. Right now I have 3 semi-active members who have not maintained the weekly XP, and 5 who have not been using DuoLingo Japanese all week (0 streak and 0 XP). So there should be 5-8 spots open in several hours! :-D
Since you sound interested, I would be happy to add you directly to the club after the leaderboard resets at midnight GMT (my 7 P.M. EST). I'll make a note right now so I don't forget.
