Making English Work

In the latest Making English Work column in today's Daily Yomiuri, Hiromi Yaguchi, CEO of cosmetics importer MJI Co., talks about her motivations to learn English. Her first aim was to enter an airline and become a flight attendant. Though she worked for two different airline companies, she gave up her original dream and set up her own company, dealing with foreign artists and entertainers coming to work in Japan. She later set up a satellite TV channel specializing in classical music, while her latest business involves antiaging cosmetics. Her varied entrepreneurial ventures have helped her devlop her English in many unexpected directions.
