FYI: Meeto World is a Language school currently teaching Japanese, Korean and soon Chinese online! check out our weekly Ustream shows for Japanese and Sake lessons for now! Why Meeto World? Well Meeto is a play on the katakana pronunciation of “meet” or “meet up”. Meeto also is a play on “Mi” for “3″ and “Tomodachi” for “Friends” as in Japanese we often truncate and concatenate words. Lastly the old school way of pronouncing the number “3″ and “10″ would been “Mee Tou” and “Ten Sai”. (Tensai also means “Genius” just to add that special touch).
