Besides studying to be a teacher (me), and how to be a helo pilot (Nick), we have decided to get ready for our big move to Japan by learning (or trying to learn) how to speak Japanese! And darnit if that isn't a very very tough language to learn! We purchased Rosetta Stone so that in the next few months we can prepare ourselves for life in Japan! I know that you can get around Japan without knowing how to speak Japanese, but how much easier will it be if we at least semi-know what they are saying???!! However, when the computer tells me how to say something in Japanese, I continually mess up the words and they come out of my mouth in a jumble of jibberish! Boo! I must get better! Luckily, we still have several months to keep learning!
So the learning goes on! (and on and on)
