I met up with my first Japanese teacher from when I was a grad student about ten years ago. A-sensei is a great person who will always help a former student out, and I really appreciate it. We had a nice chat and she’s going to connect me with some local folks to talk to.
I’m also waiting to hear back from some other folks in Japan about getting a tutor for the business Japanese.
Language is a muscle. If you don’t use it, it atrophies. Fast. So the more people I can talk to in Japanese, the better.
