    I passed JLPT 3rd grade two years ago. I will take the next grade at the end of this year.
    From the replies I see some of you mention a few really great Japanese speakers. Would you please introduce them to me? I will try to make friends with them.
    Also I would like to make friends with anyone who can speak some Japanese. I prefer at least grade 3, but it doesn't quite matter^^.

    Cool Re: How Are You With Japanese?

    i memorized about half the hiragana table,

    the only katakana i know are the ones i use to write my complete name,

    i know about 50 kanji characters,

    i know the Japanese honorifics,

    i know a couple of phrases,

    and the only grammar i know so far are the states of being (I am, I am not, I was, I was not)

    since i have 4 month summer break before going back to school, i'm gonna take the opportunity to study more

    I can say hi, bye, count to twenty, name the rainbow, ask for the potty, ask for directions (with the help of a map), say please, thank you, ask for the cost of something, and say 'fire'. And I know a tiny bit of katakana...

    Not very helpful on a trip to Japan, but the basics. I learned it with Ubisoft My Japanese Coach and watching the Japanese versions of Studio Ghibli films.

    I really want to take classes though.

    I am quiet terrible. As in, I can't form an entire sentence at all. XD

    I can read about half the katakana, a few hiragana, and about... three kanji.

    The only thing I can do that's half useful is remember about 60% of the Japanese Pokemon names. XDX

    <= 私も漢字を覚えることが 苦手なのです。 日本語学校で私は漢字、 文法が嫌いことは皆知っています。 二級は漢字、 機能語がたくさんありますので、 大変なことになっています。 私もそんなたくさんの言葉を 覚えれるのかはわかりません。
    敬語のほうが、私は今、 先生ともっと話しように しています。 先生に対しては敬語を 使わなければなりませんので、 いい練習だと思います。 また、テレビ番組で司会者の 丁寧な言葉をまねしますと、 とても役に立ちます。 それなら・・・ DP171のサルビア王者様に学べましょう!

    Still know a little bit of Japanese. I really need to work on my Japanese Language (learning from a person might help me, but can't even find a good social networking site that allows me to speak with Japanese Person). I still gotta work on Hiragana and Katakana.

    The words I know are: konnichiwa, sayonara, kawaii, misu, ringo, neko, jyu-su, etc.

    Never actually had too much ambition to actually learn the language, though I have picked up several words and phrases passively while watching shows.

    I can romanize Katakana, but as for practical skills....
    I'm pitiful at best when it comes to anything practical.
