So, I am here to learn really. I have been studying Japanese for nearly a year now. I have a one to one tutor who is fluent. I love the culture, always have done, so I took it upon myself to do my best in the Japanese language. I am not confident enough to use what I've learnt. I have only learnt the first grade Kanji - so reading is sometimes limited. I am a 24 year old poet from England. This place seems welcoming. Thanks for having me.

どうぞよろしく

Try to get over your lack of confidence. In my personal experience (classes of Japanese and exchange periods in Japan), the people that were not afraid to make mistakes and simply tried, advanced much faster as the students who were afraid to make mistakes and hardly spoke unless they were absolutely sure of their answer/comment.

Thanks for the advice! I shall try.
