What people are saying

I have participated in some workshops like this, but this time was absolutely the most enjoyable and valuable for me. I have had such a wonderful time with them exchanging opinions or share own ideas, also looking at myself and see who I am. I have figured out new parts of me and at the same time, I have been sure what I really like to do through this program. I appreciate providing this opportunity to me, and sharing time with me for 5 days.

Ami, student

“I thought this program was a really cool opportunity to meet students from another country! Especially for people who are interested in building their cultural competency, this program allows you to approach both your own and another culture with a new perspective.”

Akshaya, student

I learned a lot of things though program was really short time. For example, skills to exchange opinion, to be confident, to spread my perspective, to improve myself, and also English speaking and writing skills. In addition, my dreams and goals for the future became clearer and filled with more confidence!  I also got big motivation, so I want to make efforts for my future dream.

Yoshina, student

2週間すごく楽しかった。学校の授業中も、今日はグループセッションだなーとか、今日は1対1のセッションだなーとか考えてしまって、話すのがすごく毎回楽しみだった。学校の授業も今こんな状況下だからこそ日本語でもこうゆう授業ができたらと思った。終わってしまったのがとても寂しい。もっと長い期間、もしくはこれがナイトスクールとかの授業でとれたらと思った。
