Myths about Japan Part 2.. A lot of you have messaged me asking what happened to part 1. I made part 1 after I had been working for 50 hours a week for the last

A lot of you have messaged me asking what happened to part 1. I made part 1 after I had been working for 50 hours a week for the last two months so my grammar was.....less than perfect. English isn't my first language and I have to work very hard at it to keep speaking it fluently, so if my brain is tired my foreign starts to show.
Despite explaining that I was tired and the next ones would be better, I received a lot of negative comments which I chose to pay more attention to then the good ones. This led me to take it down due to pressure and a crumbled pride. I deeply deeply regret it and I am going to make up for it by posting it again with BONUS CONTENT!!!. Since I was asked so many questions about schools in Japan, I'm going to add them with my answers.
I want to thank all of you who gave me praise and for your many many questions. It reminded me of why I love teaching and sharing cultures with other people. ^_______^
I'd also like to thank my friend infinitereaper for reminding me that haters gonna hate and that you should focus on the people who enjoy the material the most.
Because of that, if people decide to complain in the future I will kindly ask them to go learn two languages very different from their own so I can judge their writing. (Just kidding I won't say anything >_____>)
