Hello everyone! I'm bringing a new panel with me this year in edition to my usual Zombie Survival 101 panels. I'm looking to bring a nice engaging panel covering the Japanese language, and to do that I need to know what you guys are looking for if you were to go to this panel. I'm in my eighth year of study with the language, and I have my N4 proficiency with the intent of earning an N2 ( if you don't know what those levels of proficiency are, don't worry the panel with cover that). Outside of going over some need to know facts about language study and proficiency I am hoping to teach the crowd some Japanese--my question to you is just what you guys are looking to learn in a two hour panel~.

I'm putting together the presentation this week with the intent of gathering any materials on before I head up from Ohio on Wednesday. I have a basic plan, but if I can add anything for you guys I definitely want to!

Well I learned how to spell my name, how to introduce myself, and say yes, no, thank you, morning, afternoon, evening. I would like to know more of the basic like @rinzle said when one is traveling to Japan and needing to get around. I do want to know if there are any words that are pronounced differently that most people are saying wrong.

I can definitely go through some of the needed travel basics--having been to Japan before, there's definitely some things you need to know that I'll be happy to share. As for mispronunciation...I can go over that when I discuss general pronunciation guidelines! And if there are any words you'd like to know how to pronounce, feel free to bring a list to the panel!
