My name is Kerensa. I'm in my early 20's attending college to be a Teaching English as a Second Language teacher. Actually TESL is my minor, English is my major, but I'm not getting a teaching license in English. My second language is Japanese (go figure). I hope that, before I graduate, I am able to attend at least one semester in Japan in a study abroad program. By the looks of it, it seems I will have a chance to do so Spring semester of 2008-2009. It'll tack on a semester to my graduation time, but I'm willing to make that sacrifice.
I first got interested in the Japanese language when I was 14 years old(I'm in my early 20's now). One of the kids I was babysitting had collected Japanese Pokémon trading cards. I looked at the writing on the cards and became instantly in love with it. From 14 to around 18 I copied what was written on the cards. I attended a Japanese class in high school but it was taught by a Japanese woman who had no background in teaching so I didn't learn all that much.
If I make mistakes please correct me! I want to know why a translation was wrong and what I misinterpreted. どうぞよろしくお願いしますね！がんばります！ヽ(´―`)ノ
