    That's pretty cool :yes: Actually that's something that would be a good idea to find out about the unis I'm visting :yes:
    Indeed :yes:

    If I'd gone to my insurance choice there might have been no language options, perhaps no language degrees there even. It's like they completely cut such courses.

    I suppose there's a lot of instances where unis have got to choose which subject areas they want to sepcialise in...a lot will be more academic based and have very few/no art facilities and vice-versa...that one mustn't have wanted to do anything language based

    Well, it's also concerning because languages are really useful. Keele itself seems to be doing languages as elective options rather than as full degrees.

    I agree...we live in a very small world now so being able to communicate with people in as many places as possible is really important...plus means you can make the most of the opportunities available in the modern world...languages seem a little too important to leave out really...

    Although many colleges and universities are multifaceted, offering a wide spectrum of subject areas, they won't offer everything (excluding those that are wholly specialist, since they are different). In regard to learning languages, Japanese is arguably one of the least useful in that if you're not planning to live in Japan, it doesn't have much use outside the country. It's more of a self-indulgence, in that respect. Comparatively, English, French and Spanish are more useful, certainly internationally.

    Anyway, glad you enjoyed your first lesson Alex. I'll refrain from helping you directly, since it might contradict what your tutor has taught you, but I'm more than happy to chat with you in Japanese on MSN. :smile:

    We should definitely do this again. I already know who I will vote for in each category. :giggle:

    The funny thing is that when we were doing that I had only been a member for just over a month - I couldnt vote in the site wide awards because I was still a n00b, yet had already become one of the co-leaders for the AniSoc! :mmm:

    Your overwhelming knowledge and experience of watching anime and reading manga blew everyone away. :giggle:

    Indeed, before Vin-kin decided you weren't cool. From that point, everything went downhill. :tongue:

    It's a nice idea because the anime soc is pretty much it's own community within TSR. :yes: Though that doesn't mean we shouldn't try and dominate the TSR awards as well, we did pretty well there last year. :p:

    If I wasn't intending to go to Japan and only learning Japanese to listen to anime without subs or dubs, then that would be an indulgence :dontknow: But it is a mixture of the two. Both for enjoyment, and future prospects.


    Hmm, I might be on MSN later :yes:

    Absolutely, I'm an advocate for pursuing what you enjoy. That in itself is a worthwhile reason for learning Japanese, regardless of any other tangible cause that may be considered more so.

    I won't be on MSN this evening (going out to eat somewhere, apparently), but we'll definitely chat at some point. :yes:

    I didn't know there were TSR awards (there is so much I have yet to learn) that sound pretty exciting...and another Anisoc awards seems like an awesome idea...I know who I'd vote for in some categories already...still making my mind up about others :p:
