Strangely enough, I've heard some people object to the word "training" as it conjured up the image of an animal trainer working with his pet dogs.
If you want to throw in your two cents worth about the translations of the words, fine, but I am really more interested in everyone's opinions and stories. You know, YOUR experience. Dictionaries are boring.
Actually, what I wrote above was
from my own experience in speaking and understanding Japanese. I can't say I used a dictionary at all...
Hope all is well where you are, Jim!
