As you know, it happened on March 11, 2011.
Sadness in Japan, suffering, anxiety and led to the Tohoku earthquake.
At first, my parents recommended this program to me.
But I didnít hope it. Because I worried about my English, going to U.S. by
myself and homesick. However, I thought I hope to improve my English and I
would like to try a lot of things. I canít speak English very well.
But I will do my very best.
Finally, I all appreciate their supports and this wonderful opportunity.
