"I studied Japanese at university in Liverpool and as part of my course we got to go and study for a year in Japan as part of an exchange. I was based in Osaka and really loved the people, culture, food and country. After returning home I was yearning to return so I took a TEFL certification course then went back to teach English in Japan." - Laura, UK
