Being a second generation Japanese, I can speak converational Japanese without any problem. Communication is no problem however I am illiterate in Japanese. I have started to memorize my katagana and hiragana on my own and characters seem very similiar to the Mandarin characters I have been studying for the past 5 years or so. Planning to move to the Ashiya, Nishinomiya area of Japan. (between Kobe and Osaka) Anybody have any recommendations for adult Japanese schools for foreigners? Or where I can find a competant tutor?
