Learning Japanese: Respect, Modesty & Politeness

I started learning Japanese three years ago from a girl studying to be a Japanese teacher. She was teaching people introductory Japanese, e.g., hiragana, katakana, and self-introductions. Eventually, I enrolled into Japanese classes at St. Mary’s University (SMU) in Halifax, NS for two years. I had/made some Japanese friends, so I had chances to practice outside of the classroom in natural situations.

I recently bought an electronic dictionary (Casio XD-V9000) off a fellow NOVA teacher from Halifax, NS in Japan! Coincidentally we also went to the same junior high school. He was a grade above me, but I remembered his face, and he remembered mine. It was an awesome coincidence and it was nice to catch up with a face I remembered from long ago.
