If you are truley interested in Japanese, I suggest you find someone in the community that you can get to work with your kids one- on - one or in a small class setting. Do you realize there are 4 ways to write something in Japanese? Japanese is composed of Kanji, Hiragana, Katakana and Romanji. We had a Japanese exchange student stay with us for 4 weeks last summer and I learned I could write and say my name 4 different ways!
My DD (14yrs) has had a tutor since Sept and We also invested in Rosetta Stone, but the tutor is our lifeline. It will take my DD several years to get to a level where she could communicate both written and orally in Japanese as well as someone could in a 2 year Spanish or French program. She has mastered Kanji K, 1st and 2nd grade and is working on Hiragana. She is reading childrens stories and doing some translating of them, but it will take her most of high school to learn all she needs.
