I have told many people that "Sazae-san" is one of my Japanese language and culture teachers. Eighteen years ago I didn't understand 5% of what she was saying, but I took notes of her lines and did my research. I can understand a lot more now, and I still see the show whenever I can. I was driving when it started today. It's a little scary to know that nowadays we can watch TV as we drive, but don't worry--today I listened to her; I didn't watch the show.
