I have taken Japanese for three years at my school. I loved it. I wasnt great at studying or remembering but just having that class each day made my day.
We had three teachers in those three years. The first two where Nihon-Jin and the last was America-jin and I learned a lot from the last two. I am going to miss not having the class this year, but what can you do.
I love knowing a language that hardly anyone knows. It is fun finding those few people who do though. This year, we were blessed to have a Japanese exchange student stay with us and it has been fun having her here.
For now- Sayonara
