My Self-Introduction Video in Japanese!

Hello again from Singapore!

I have just shot my very first video in Japanese and uploaded it on YouTube.

For those of you who are curious as to what I look and sound like when I speak Japanese, please check out this video:

Needless to say, Japanese is the language that I am most comfortable with, and shooting this video was way easier than my previous videos in English and Mandarin.

All the same, given my rather shy personality, I think I still come off as rather tense and awkward, even when I'm speaking in my native tongue!

Clearly, my presentation skills still have a long way to go, but I believe that I can improve myself bit by bit, as I shoot more and more videos and do a lot of show and tell, just like those elementary school kids in the US.

Anyway, in case you are wondering what I'm saying in this video, I am mainly talking about my greatest passion, which is learning foreign languages, and in particular I am elaborating on why French is my favorite language among the many foreign languages that I have learned so far.

Currently, I am planning to shoot a video in French, but given my limited French skills, it will take some preparations. Hope you can check it out when I do upload it, in the not-so-distant future!

I will talk to you again soon.

Have a prosperous week ahead!
