The life of a Michigan State University College Girl, turned Chicago Native. Continue the journey with me!

I don’t speak Japanese!

I knew coming to a foreign country would be difficult especially considering how there aren’t really in alphabetic characters in the Japanese language. I didn’t although expect it to be this difficult. I realizes as soon as I got off the plane, that this would be more difficult than I expected. I instantly wanted to speak Spanish. I’ve studied Spanish for at least 6 years, so when I here a foreign language I instantly want to use Spanish.

And to add to it, company visits are of course in Japanese, ordering food, unless your pointing at what you want is in Japanese and the camera I bout is in Japanese!!! And of course I can’t figure out how to get it off. I’m going to find a person, to hopefully translate it.

I’ve only been here a few days, hopefully things will start getting easier.
