    Word needed.


    Actually before, all students in junior high need to learn English. And that is how I get started. And later on, I found that learning English helped to understand people and cultures of other countries. And I pretty much enjoyed all those.

    At the third year of my college study, I started learning Japanese cause it was the second foreign language we must learn. Japanese is fun and also there is some similarities with Chinese. I enjoy Japanese movies and music as well.

    Generally speaking, learning a foreign language is fun and useful.

    To know the culture better

    language is a tool
