My name is Bernd Wieland and I am new to this group.

I am from Germany and I studied physics at the technical university. Actually I live and work in Japan together with my half German and half Japanese wife. From early on I had great interest in the Japanese culture and way of living. Therefore I also started to learn Japanese. Last November I successfully managed to pass the N5 level. For this year’s Summer I plan to try the N4 level.

I hope that I can contribute to the discussions on this forum and also find some interesting informations that might help me to be better prepared for the test.

Yours sincerely,
Bernd Wieland

Suggestions to the group

Hallo and greetings to the JLPT group at XING.

definetely, there are many pages on the internet made by people learing japanese
language. There is also a lot information about it.

so i decided to setup the group within XING to accumulate some of the information
about language learning and life in japan from other groups.
Themes about learning language are also welcome as
ideas about how to find a japan related position or how to plan a holiday in japan.

i am open to any topics of interests, though i think themes about japanese anime
or manga are better to be discussed in other forums on the internet.

By the way, i am thinking about using in this forum japanese language as a main
language, what do you think ?

Normally i write a diary in mixi.
recently though it was virtually closed for
foreign applicants because of the necessity to
input a mobile phone number during
application time.

Does anybody have an idea how to overcome it ?

I can of course send an invitation if
somebody want to enter mixi.
