u will never learn the essence of life unless u try something on your own. Before i come philippnies to be a volunteer and study English, i am afraid whether i can do it well or not, however after a few days, i really enjoy my life here.
it is no denying that others' minds will enrich your own thoughts, i have a good friend who comes from Japan called aki. i have learnt some Japanese languages from him. it is important for u to try your best to talk with different people from different countries, you can broaden your horizon during this process.
In a word, i will have fun in philippnies.
