My personal information

 

  Hello. Thank you very much for checking my page! Let me introduce myself. I majored in comminication studies at university and I mainly learned Chinese, English and Japanese. I wanted to explore the world and I applied for the studying abroad program ( as an exchange student ) and I went to America for 9 months after passing the examination. After finishing the short term intensive program there, I mainly took classes about the communication studies there and learned them with local students. I also joined Taekwondo club and practiced a lot with the club mates ( Native Americans ) and had a very good time there. After graduation, I worked for a manufacturing company and have been working for a trading company as an oversea’s sales representative since I wanted to use my English. I have visited 9 countries for business. I use English every day for business purposes and I have confidence in English. I have the ability to continue things and I have continued to learn English since I graduated from university. While it took 5 years, I finally passed Eiken ( STEP TEST ) 1 st grade. At present, in addition to my regular work as an oversea’s sales rep. at a trading company, I also work as a tour guide on vacation. I like to entertain guests as a guide and I am very happy to see their smile. I gained knowledge about tourist places ( such as, historical things and cultures, etc… ) by visiting them and reading books. I output the knowledge through experiences as a guide and I learned them by try and error by checking their reactions. I want to put on emphasis on the mind of hospitality and kindness and would like them to come back to Japan again. I want to be a tour guide who make guests think that they want to travel with me. Thank you very much for your kind attentioni and your time.
