@My major was "Indonesian Language & Culture".
@My first trip to Indonesia was 1992, I was a high school student. This trip was a part of my high school program and I visited Jakarta & Yogyakarta for 2 weeks with other students. I was very surprised and shocked because Indonesian high school students knew Japanese culture, history and language, by contrast, I know nothing!
@This is why I chose "Indonesian Language & Culture" as my major.
