Risa Kitano is 31 and comes from Tokyo, where she is a well-known pop singer. She has just completed a month studying General English at English UK member Torquay International School.
No, it's just my hobby. When I am in Japan there is no opportunity to speak English. Some day I may want a job where I connect to abroad and need to speak English but for now my job is in music. I do perform in other countries, but in most cases they're in Asia at the moment.
I chose Torquay and the school because I thought there would not be any Japanese people here. I thought if I chose a school with no Japanese people and small groups I would be able to concentrate on my English.
Everything! The students are from lots of different places and the teachers are very understanding and kind. I've made a lot of friends.
No, there's nothing I don't like. It's a very good country.
Before I came here I thought English food had a very bad image but I am staying with a host family and they are always making food which is delicious. And Torquay is always sunny.
Yes. I was very surprised because it is always sunny and the food is delicious!
