. Hello my name Cristian Rivera, I'm from Honduras and I have studied english for 8 years and finished High School in Cypress Lakes High School and graduated with the rank of 183 out of 890 students with a GPA of 5.67 in the US . And I've found my love in learning languages and how it represents the country where its spoken because of my ability of speak both Spanish and English gave me broader perspective in how languages can make a big difference in aspect of the country. Right now, I have being studying japanese by myself for almost 4 years but that only can get me so far that is why I want to learn Japanese properly. Why I want to study Japanese because of various reasons, to broaden my perspective, my desire to understand the big difference between Japan with the US and Honduras, and how the language affects the individual in such a different society like Japan and most of all how much I love Japanese culture.

The hard part of this dream is that my family financially wise is not great. Being honest, this is the only way i may have an opportunity in the slightest to having this experience, meaning this is my last hope.

The program where enables me to go study to japan, is GoGo Nihon
is a site where they help international student that want to study in Japan. The language school that i would to study is Akamonkai:
https://gogonihon.com/en/language-schools/tokyo/akamonkai/

The Amount of time that i would stay would be a year, because to stay more is bigger amount of money that i can put myself to ask for.

The Course cost for 12 months is ¥748,000  its equals to $6,710.88
 
Another reason I chose Akamankoi is that they have a dorm.32564530_1535650619562060_r.jpeg 
In this case Im going for the shared room 

Rent
¥35,000 per month                         $314.01
Utility bills
¥3,000 monthly average              $26.92
Entrance Fee
¥30,000 one-time                             $269.15 
Security deposit
¥30,000 one time (refundable) $269.15

Summing everything up to $879.23 for the first month
 and every other month would be around  $340.93 

Why I want to learn japanese, there is one reason. I want to become a translator, because i want to be able to share the amazing things they create. As well for the other way, i want to see Latin culture in Japan, to share what we have our food, our stories, our music. In this time more than ever, where everything looks divided and in the brink hate. I would like to celebrate our differences, to show that those differences that makes us unique should be celebrated and shared. It may be small but accepting other by what they are, could brings us to an amazing world.
This is a video I made where I translated this from Japanese to Spanish. I started this youtube videos because i wanted to do something with small amount of japanese that I know. 
Well, the last thing that i would like to say is, Thank you just for reading this and even more if you decide to donate for this cause. 

Thank you again for your time 
Have a nice day


Cristian
