Last year I interviewed a bunch of people about learning Japanese. One of them was Risa from JapanesePod101.com. Although the purpose was to talk about learning Japanese, as she teaches it on YouTube, we ended up talking about how she learned English and about language in general.
Just to be clear, this is not a sponsored video. I just happened to know Meg and Risa through YouTube events and they also happen to make videos teaching people Japanese language and culture.
By the way, have you gotten a tattoo in Japanese? Did you make sure it said what you thought it did?
