This could get tricky if Japanese consumers don’t necessarily know that Yoda and Jar jar don’t talk like typical Americans…

Here’s a great new way to study Japanese or English: using this awesome Star Wars English Learner’s Dictionary from Japan that teaches you through Star Wars quotes. It’s much easier to learn a language when you can connect it to knowledge you already have, and this might be a great way for you or your Padawan to study! So do, or do not. There is no try!

Yeah, unless, you’re talking about a rugby match in which a scoring motion is overturned, “There is no try” isn’t correct speech. For the record.
