"It began as a general interest in the language, mostly because of the complex characters and new alphabet. As time progressed, I became more and more invested in the culture of Japan." -Daniel O
"The fact that after only 3 years of study I'm able to talk pretty comfortably and converse in the language without a script is pretty amazing. Also that you can learn a whole new way of writing in just one school year is crazy." -Andrew S
