Thank you for that!! The link in the article after is says “We have told you about Japan...” does not have a translation option on my phone. This happens sometimes with brightside article link citations.

This comment is too shy. It's hiding.
Many may know that fact, but may not know some of the information in the article. Not all schools go into this much detail when learning about different countries, or the details are there but we are not all tested on names of countries in their original language. Just because you know something doesn’t mean someone else does and the opposite is also true- we have something to learn from everyone and they have something to learn from us. 😆 Having that mindset can help us have more excitement/positivity in getting to interact with another person.

And I can go on to say that we never stop learning. Sure, the elders in my family I believe are very intelligent and seen a lot in their lifetime, but many admit they are still learning.
