There are many reasons for wanting to learn a language, including English and Japanese.
Perhaps you have friends or family who you would like to be able to communicate to in their native language? Or maybe your interests lie in the culture of the country? Maybe you even want to get ahead by having a second language on your CV (always a talking point and something that impresses your potential boss). Maybe you’re studying towards your exams.
Whatever your reason learning a second (or third, or fourth?) language is an amazing adventure. You will be frustrated, elated, and soon all of your hard work will pay off when you find yourself able to communicate outside of English.
