High School Japanese Class

During my sophomore, junior, and senior (10th, 11th, and 12th) years in high school, a new world opened before my eyes. While attending a history class one day in what was either 1997 or 1998, an American man approached the front of the room, having been invited to introduce his class: Japanese language. From the moment I saw this teacher, Mr. Hopkins was his name, I became intent on learning the Japanese language.
