If You Teach Japanese, Here Are 16 Resources

It's not exactly taught in every American high school, mainly because it is more difficult to learn than Spanish, French or Italian. Japanese can be found on the college level, especially when business majors are looking to work for a Japanese company. A friend of mine who is CPA learned Japanese for his job. At any age, it is a challenging language.
