For future education? For a job? Just for the heck of it?
I took three years of Japanese in college, and spent a summer, and then a year and a half working in Japan. I now work in an industry where being fluent in Japanese will help me progress in my career, since many of our customers are Japanese companies. I realized that having an exam to study for was an incredibly motivating factor for me. Also, having that certificate provides some level of authentication for my resume, but that's a secondary concern.
