Today's guest: Maki

Stick News: no car day in China

I thought Maki said some very interesting things in the interview.
Such as what she said about the difficulty of learning a language when you are surrounded by your native language at your workplace. I also faced this problem when trying to learn Japanese in Japan.
Also, as she did, I learnt a lot about the country I come from by going overseas.

Note for people who don't understand Japanese:
Maki used the word "gaijin" 外人. This means foreigner, but, as it says in wikipedia it is "mainly used to refer to non-East Asians". There are 4 kinds of people in Japan: Japanese, Chinese, Koreans and foreigners.
