I apologize for not specifing what we would really be using this for in
my previous inquiry. One of the ideas we had was to give a short video
on basic Japanese words mainly for business people who would be traveling
to Japan - kind of survival skills. This is not something to plug the
center and not something that we can "put up a gif or two on the web" to
accomplish. If anyone has some helpful suggestions I would appreciate it.
