  2. Hello,

    I was watching “Out and About” and saw the advertisement for monitors. However, it looks like the deadline has passed as I cannot access the application form.

    If you find you need more monitors, please let me know. I am a big fan of NHK World shows and live in the U.S. now, but have lived in several countries. I am also a professional freelance writer with a Journalism degree.
