My daughter has been studying the Japanese language using Rosetta Stone for some time now. She tries to teach me some things to say, but I really don't have the time right now to devote that would be needed to progress very far. She'd love to work as a translator, with enough schooling and experience. I think learning another language is both enjoyable and beneficial. I hope you find some sincere interest for your study group on ADISC.
I used to take Japanese lessons once a week, but I discontinued the lessons this year, and have since felt like I'm losing the language. Thus I embrace any opportunity to practice, in hopes of improving.
