About me

My name is Shinichi (pronounced like "SHING-ITCHY"). I am a computer programmer. My voice has a slight high tone. My hair is black and straight. My eyes are dark brown. And I wear glasses.
I have been fond of Isaac Asimov's writing since I was 15, or 16. He was an American science fact and science fiction writer. At the time, future was somehow grayish, or pale blue, but yet a fragrant dream. And understanding the universe was very exciting. And what's more, Asimov's books are fun!
In my childhood, I read them in Japanese( translation version ).
Now, I would like to read Asimov's books in English( his own language ).
So I am learning English. To enjoy many books.

Testimonials from My Friends

Kimuraさん often helps me with my Japanese. His explanation style is totally unique, and he's very intuitive about what is understandable and what isn't. I'm humbled by his consistent, thorough and intelligent contributions.
There are many people who give me helpful corrections and comments here at Lang-8, but Kimura-san's are the ones I value and trust the most. He is always thorough, and works hard to explain things in a way that can be easily understood. He is also remarkably sensitive to the nuances of how things are said in English; this is apparent both in his translations and in the wording of his explanations. I feel very fortunate to have him as a teacher.
I even want to pay money for this person's advice and explanations! Thanks very much!
Very helpful and meticulous. Explanations are well thought-out. Appreciate his help always!
