Err... the kind of things that other expats do, only in Japanese? The few I know like movies, eating well, travel around the region and occasionally spending a night at my place :mrgreen:

Sounds cool, certainly if it is fun to speak some words which seem fogotten in the brains. Let´s rock and speak some french/jap. and some italian words, which will be new to me.
Bye, ciao, adios, mata ne,

you might want to start by not using the term 'jap', which has derogatory connotations - it was at one time a racial slur

surprising that you are familiar with Japan and the Japanese people but not this

Going back to the original topic...*ehem*

Don't know much about the single expats, but for the married ones, the hubby's usually work till very late so don't seem to have much of a social life, and the wives spend their free time learning English/Chinese, going for lunch, shopping, taking paper craft classes and some of the more active ones take Yoga lessons or play golf etc.

Hi to all..

Well.. I used to organise the "Japanese Language Exchange' in this forum once a week.. But I stopped due to the poor response..

The regulars in my group and I all agreed that it is difficult to find people with interest in Japanese language.. since it is not widely used..

I am not sure about the other single Japanese, but the ones in my group simply love drinking! Anything about drinking goes!

Well, if anyone would like to practice Japanese or meet up with people of common interest, do PM to keep in contact, yeah?

Have a nice day..
Jaa ne!
