It has been almost a year since I came to Japan. I am living a busy and fulfilling life with my friends visiting a lot of places especially around Tokyo, and I work part-time. Japan that I am experiencing as a student is much better than Japan I experienced on a trip! The class of conversation helped in an interview and I got accepted to the vocational school, and I passed JLPT 2 within a year. As I talk to Japanese friends, I realize that the experience of study abroad is very useful since I can remember the words actually used in a conversation by Japanese people.
