Why I continue to study Japanese

I currently continue to study Japanese for several specific goals, in rough descending priority:

  1. Know what I'm buying at the grocery store (see Japanese packaged food labels I want to read entirely)
  2. Be able to visualize ingredients when reading a menu
  3. Understand what I'm supposed to do, without being told (reading public signs and notices)
  4. Read road signs rapidly
