Women Still Favor English

According to a survey quoted in the Daily Yomiuri this week, English is the most popular among private classes taken by women. In the survey of about 500 women conducted last year by Recruit Co., 33% said that learning English was their favorite means of self-improvement, with 23% going to fitness clubs and 13% attending cookery classes. Respondents said they were repared to pay for such classes because they wanted to "change the pace of their life, enrich their private liffe, improve their abilities, or to prepare for a future career."
