I'd bet you speak better Japanese than I do as well since I don't speak it. I mean, I know a couple of choice words and I can count to 10 (used to be able to count to 100). But since I live in America I don't really have use or even much of an opportunity to speak it here. My Dad always amazed me though. He went to Japan as a pimple faced 17 year old outta Lewisburg, WV and spoke fluent Japanese within 6 months. Within 8 months he could read and write it too.After nearly 28 years living in Asia, I can tell. I'd bet I speak better Japanese than you (probably way better) as well.
