Did your niece take Japanese as a class in high school? :shock: All we could take was Spanish (we used to have Latin, but the teacher retired a couple of years ago and they haven't gotten a replacement) and this year they started offering German via live video.
I don't speak a whole lot of Japanese. I know more single Japanese words than Japanese sentences/phrases. Most of the Japanese I know came from watching anime and playing video games. There just aren't any places (around here anyways) that actually teach Japanese. And Japanese is a really hard language to learn. There are so many different words that can mean the same thing and then there's the formailities. And you can say so much and it can mean very little and you can say very little and actually be saying a whole lot. That's partially why dubbing anime can be difficult because if there's a lot of talking but not really saying a whole lot they translators have to figure out how to fill all that in with English. Same if they say a couple words and it translates into a mouthful of words. I wanted to go to Japan as a forgien exchange student, but the idea never got off the ground (mostly because you'd have to sign up really early because Japan is one of AFS's most popular exchange programs and I would of never been able to afford going there).
Nope. Not a pilot. Nor am I associated with geese. My favorite band is an all-female heavy metal band named Kittie and the lead singer plays a Flying V guitar. Hence, Flying V Goddess.
Uh...the quilt...not going so well...I'm going to have to seam rip the layers apart.
