• Study Abroad
  • Presbyterian College
  • What was the most memorable/impressive experience?
    People I've met here and nature. People who live here, friends, teachers are so kind to me. They often hang out with me; I watch movies, visit the house of one of my friends. Some students help my studying a lot. Thanks to them, my English has improved. And there are lots of trees, so wide sky and a big lawn. I was so impressed with them because I couldn't experience them in my city, Tokyo.
  • What was the most crucial thing in preparation before leaving Japan?
    You have to apply what the university requires before leaving. If you want to do something else, you should study English as much as you can. It will help a lot.
  • What was your proudest accomplishment during your stay?
    I did my best for the test. For the test, I recorded some lectures, typed and asked questions about classes to the TA. I also asked a friend to help. I spent lots of time on studying for the test.
  • What skill did you gain the most (academically or socially)?
    Academically: I learned how to write creative essays and how to catch the main points on reading or listening.
    Socially: I came to try to ask even if I don't have confidence and I got used to being checked my skills; presentation, writing and speaking. So I know how I should improve my skills easily and I can improve it faster.
  • What was the biggest hardship you faced?
    Language. I couldn't understand well what people said and I couldn't talk what I wanted to say in detail.
  • What are you putting your most effort into right now?
    Studying. When I listen to English on talking or classes, I try to focus on the main points.
  • What are you into now?
    Watching movies with English subtitles, talking with friends, and playing volleyball.
  • What do you want to try in the rest of your stay?
    I want to do my best on studying and hang out with friends
