I'm new to the group. Been trying for years to learn Japanese. Took my first martial arts class as a P.E. requirement my first year in college & fell in love with the language & culture. Would love to travel there.
Now living in WV, near state capitol. Anyone know of classes offered in the area (private or college) ?
Welcome in! I can't help with finding classes where you are, but hope you find something suitable. Out of interest though, how have you tried learning Japanese up to now, and how much progress do you think you've made with it? (My father tried learning Japanese at a class were the teacher tried to teach reading far too soon, insisting that it was vital to be able to read kanji from the start, and within a few weeks the class was empty. There are many Japanese classes like that and they are to be avoided like the plague, so don't be too quick to hand over any .)
