Nice to meet you!
I'm Yumi, and some of my friends call me Yumi the human dynamo, lol. I get a kick out of people calling me like that.
I'm very optimistic and love making efforts to make my dreams come true. My favorite quote is "Where there is a will, there is a way." So, I've believed that after I make efforts a lot, I can reach my goals! My dreams relate to my English skills and that's why I've been learning conversational English. When I say something positive, some of my friends say it's a Yumi-ism! I also love the term.
I'm a china painter and sometimes to study abroad in America to improve both my painting skills and English skills. When I take some painting classes in America, I can improve my English comprehension skills at the same time. I really think it's killing two birds with one stone. I haven't taken any conversational lessons in English in Japan, but I have several good international friends all over the world. While speaking with them in English, I've been trying to improve my communication abilities.
I live in Japan with my husband, daughter and pet dog and cat, and I've been spending a wonderful time with them every single day.
I’ve been blogging in English here. http://yumiyumayume.wordpress.com/
If you have extra time, please leave your comment. I’ve been introducing about Japanese culture there.
Thanks for checking out my page. If you are a Japanese learner and want to improve your comprehension skills, I can help you in both English and Japanese. So, please contact me. Let’s help each other!
