About Me

Hi! I'm Mica. I'm 18, Filipino, and I live in Canada.

My dad took a little Japanese before he went to work in Japan for a year when I was really young. He sent us one of Matsuda Seiko's CDs, and he told my mom and I to listen to [Anata ni Aitakute] because he missed us. Like a lot of people, I got into anime and manga as well. I've accumulated some Japanese vocabulary through that, so I thought I might as well learn for real! 


How much do you know in Japanese?

I know Hiragana, Katakana, and some Kanji. I'm familiar with the English meanings because of the shapes and because I've seen them in my Mandarin class in the past. I've been exposed to the Japanese since I was young, so my pronunciation is good. I have a bit of vocabulary due to the anime and manga I've encountered over the years hahaha

The Philippines was occupied by the Japanese for 3 years I think, and we have some loan words like kaban (cabinet, but bag in Japanese), kaidan (stairs), and some others. Sometimes, we also call rock-paper-scissors Jankenpoi, even though it's "Bato-bato-pik" in Cebuano.

What other languages do you speak?

Cebuano (Binisaya), English, Filipino (Tagalog)

How much do you know in Japanese?

So far, only Hiragana, but not completely. It'll take me a while to recognize a character, and i don't exactly know all of them yet

About Me

I've lived and worked in Tokyo for five years. I majored in Japanese in college (4 years of study) which gave me a good foundation for life in Japan, but my education is still very incomplete.

I passed N4 last year as a kind of "soft re-entry" to studying again. My current goal is to pass N2.

I have a very small vocabulary. This holds me back in work and casual situations. While I work on building my vocabulary and kanji knowledge (via WaniKani), I'd like to review grammar and have confidence in my communication skills.


How much do you know in Japanese?

Around 650 kanji and 2000 vocabulary words. Have passed JLPT N4 and am likely able to pass N3.

I play quite a bit of pc games, I used to watch a few animes during the summer, and I have a few friends who speak/are learning Japanese :)

I am not learning Japanese just becuase of anime/manga, and I haven't watched or read one in a while. I find the culture very fascinating on Tofugu.com is where I read some blogs by Kouichi.
