    Okay, my family is taking Japanese but no one knows that. I do think that I mentioned it on this site but I can not yet read Japanese and my vocabulary is very limited.

    I am now getting some comments on my blog that are written in Japanese. I preview everything that comes on my blog before I post.

    I put the Japanese email through babel fish and the message was so odd that I found a couple of other free translation sites.

    The best that I can tell is that someone is advertising for paid relations. [​IMG]


    Why the heck is someone sending me these emails? And why in Japanese?

    Have any of you got strange messages on your blog?

    Maybe you clicked on a link to something within a website having to do with the Japanese or Japan ... You know, like an advertiser or something?

    Quote:I know from experience that giving my children a language program and expecting them to learn it on their own is setting myself up for a lot of wasted expense. We decided to invest in Rosetta Stone and I knew that I needed to study with them. If we spend that much money, I want my kids to speak the language, not just go through the course.

    The kids chose Japanese Why? I don't know. I think that there is a current fascination for Japanese culture. But if they are learning and eager, I don't care what their reasons for wanting to learn a language is.

    I am very surprised at how much I am enjoying learning another language. It is like a really fun puzzle that you get to put together.

    My one qualm about Rosetta Stone is its lack of grammar. I understand the concept behind the program but to be honest, as an older learner, I need to understand why I am saying what I am saying. Does that make sense? So, I have bought a couple of grammar books and we are going through those......slowly.

    We are also trying to learn how to read Japanese but I can only pick out a very few words right now and all those are in hiragana. I have a book that is supposed to teach us Kanji also.

    Sometimes I wish that I had a Japanese neighbor to practice the slight bit that we know.

    My 11 year old is having fun mixing her English with the little bit of Japanese that she knows.

    We are also reading a lot about Japan and trying some different foods. I got a Japanese cook book and am trying some of the recipes.

    I think that I am enjoying this more then the kids. Which shocks me because I didn't think that I would like learning Japanese. I thought Spanish would be better.
