I am interested in learning Japanese language and culture at LJI. I have been close to Japan through a series of books to find and meet with many friends by participating in exchange activities at LJI. Especially the Nihon Club makes my weekend colorful. Apart from that , LJI has also given me the greatest opportunity of my life as a scholarship exchange at the Gakushuin Women's College for one year, and throughout that time, I got new experiences for my life. I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to LJI’s lecturer for teaching
