My name is Sam Bleakly,

I’m the community manager at italki!  :)

In July I will be traveling to Japan for the first time….  and I know absolutely no Japanese!!!

As a solution, I will be taking 30 lessons on italki before my trip and documenting what I learn by making videos of me learning Japanese.

Here is my first video where i’m tired from a long day of work at italki and trying to remember all of the Japanese vocabulary that I’ve learned!!!!:
