well YKK, long years of exposure does help.
Your strong sub conscious foundation will help you improve a lot once you come here.
Under the right environment, you'll be surprised how fast you learn.
So don't worry, you'll do fine.
I'm joining social circles with more non-english speakers (koreans and japanese) currently to push myself to speak.
Btw, you have already been selected for MEXT 2009 and waiting for July departure right?
Ooilingfan, thank you VERY VERY MUCH for your answers, really helped me to clarify my doubts.
I haven't been selected for anything yet, my exam is on 27 July. This is my second time trying to get the scholarship.
Yes, In the veeeery bottom of my mind I can speak japanese! I've been there for holidays and hadn't any trouble communicating at all.
Buuuuuut it's not the same to ask for directions or buy something at the conbini than really having a nice chat with someone in plain japanese <--- I'm not very confident with this 😌
