Thank you so much for your timely article. Timely for me anyway. Amazing that you should post it right as I am considering moving to Japan and learning Japanese. My interest in learning Japanese comes from the number of jobs in my field that ask for bilingual people. Your comments on opportunity cost were especially enlightening. (I was an economics major back in the day.) I am not a young guy any more and so if I only have twenty to twentyfive years left, do I REALLY want to spend a significant percentage of them leaning Japanese? Probably not so much. I really like your sense of humor and I will continue to read your posts. Thanks again.
