I'm 17, and from the United States. I learned about the game of go around the age of 10 or so, but knew no more than basic knowledge (as in two eyes, seki, et cetera). I got back into the game recently and have absorbed a lot of go terms from this site (and also Hikaru no go LOL) without really improving in strength. I am probably around 30 kyu if not more, but I hope to improve. Unfortunately there are no 'go clubs' in my area of the country, but I hope that this site will help me.
P.S.: I have been browsing this site for about half a year, but I finally decided to make an account so I could ask questions from stronger players
