So I heard one way to keep your japanese up is to do atleast one news paper article a day, to help strengthen/reinforce/build vocabular/grammar. So I found this site while scouting http://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/easy/ it seems to have plenty of articles every day and they are very short and have furigana. I was thinking if i translated one would someone be interested in making corrections and help grading it and maybe others will follow suit...maybe if it becomes popular we can ahve an whole area devoted to translating newspaper articles or something like that o_o.
P.S. Yes, I'm still alive o_o
