When i was in University, i wanted be an air traffic controller at an airport. One of my friends-in-high school had been working as an ATC and it made me excited when i heard some stories from her. 'Course they need to speak English, that's because they command pilots only in English even though both of them are Japanese. Actually, i applied for it a couple of times and took tests but couldn't pass it. I believe I was able to answer those questions well in that English test, but it was really difficult to pass it because only ten out of around one thousand candidates could be successful in it. Ten!! One thousand!! Are you serious?
I was really dissapointed when I missed it, but that's life. Actually, I don't have a sense of direction.
My friend mentioned above passed away in her twenties because of the accident. I sometimes remember her and our younger days.
Last spring, one of my friends-in-English school became an ATC. She was very keen to learn English and other subjects. She reminds me of my memories in twenties and it motivates me to learn more.
