Hi Eric, we have similar experience in the academia. English is not my native language nor can I say that I am fluent in it. What helped me better understand and learn the language is through reading pocket books that interests me. That way I improve my vocabulary.
I really would like to learn basic Japanese or Spanish. I like to travel and meet people from different cultures. But I want to start with Japanese since I have co-workers from Japan.
