Since the Paper Gods series is set in Japan and you've lived there, I want to know what level your Japanese is? I use to work at British Hills and was never able to practice my Japanese there, so I'm a beginner.
Oh, hi! :) My Japanese level is maybe medium. I can get around with no problems, ask questions and advice, take a cooking class, read about 700 kanji, understand most of a kids' movie, and, apparently, I can roleplay Anna and Elsa for an hour-long bus ride with my host sister's 4 year old. If that isn't a test of language skill, I don't know what is.
