  1. what a perfect match, studying Japanese in England… that’s just awesome, I love both Japanese and English and so their cultures… Unfortunately i am still in my 2nd year of my study majoring English language and literature. I wonder whether I can also join this program. It would be lovely since my passion in both subjects is so big. I’m looking forward for a good news, thanks :)
