Hello, My name is Gordon and I am new to Rocket Japanese, my resin for learning Japanese is due to my work. I work for Honda of America and find myself involved with my Japanese counter parts on a daily bassis given the nature of the project that I am working on.
My position will require me to work quite closely with the Japanese for at least a year, given this I felt it only courteous to learn what I can of their language in order to make them feel more welcome and at ease.
I have always wanted to learn a foreign language but never seemed to do so, this is my attempt to change that lack in my life. I hope that I will be able to learn enough to make some friends, I am assigned to working with one particular gentleman at the moment (his name is Mizuma), the language barrier makes rather difficult and trying to track down a translator takes up time that I could more productively use.
Thats it, I apologize for the long winded intro.
