來到PIXNET 後的首篇文章，應該來點對申請WWOOF JAPAN更有建設性的幫助，
現在WWOOF JAPAN 申請的方式有改變了，
Hello Mr. XXX,
I am a member of WWOOF Japan and I want to apply for the working opportunity in your place. If it is possible, I want to WWOOF from around01/10 ~ 01/15 to 02/10 or more, more than one month in total.
I have been WWOOFing in Chiba Ken, Gunma ken, Hokkaido (twice) since April, 2006.
Concerning of my Japanese skills, I think there would be no problem in easy daily life. I have learned this by myself when I started to wwoof in Japan last year.
Your reply would be appreciated.
Happy New Year!!

ps：following is my self-introduction, I think it would be better if you know me more before I go.
I majored in accounting and business administration (MBA) and got the bachelor and master degrees from Catholic Fu-Jen University .After graduation, I served in the army for 15 months as a second lieutenant because it is the obligation for young men in Taiwan.
Now, I am taking a gap year before working. From this year, in addition to learning Japanese language and culture, I also want to gain some useful skills such as cooking or experiences of many new stuff and things .
That's why I chose to wwoof in Japan.
I have been to some countries before, and gained much experiences and understanding of cultural differences through it.
In 1995, in my age of 15, I went to Brighton, England and stayed for 8 weeks alone.
Except of studying in English language school, I learned how to use my leisure time well because I didn't go with the group and all by myself.
In 1999, I went to Japan with other students in my school.
We attended an activity with Japanese college students and shared each other with our experiences and thoughts.
In 2000, I participated the activity of "World Youth Day" held in Vatican.
During the sessions, I had the chances to cooperate with many foreigners in different countries, jobs and ages.
When the activity was finished, I spent 11 days traveling in Italy.
In 2004, my two classmates and I traveled in Europe, Switzerland and France but Spain mainly, for 30 days.
