In Myanmar, almost everyone takes English as the first foreign language at school. However, I studied Japanese as a few learners. My friend asked me, “Why do you study Japanese?” It is because as everyone studies English, English learners will face to competition at the time of recruitment, but since there are a few Japanese learners, I thought that being able to speak Japanese would be advantageous when I look for a job.
