What are you doing now?

Now Im a 2nd year student in university. Im currently studying at Akita International University. image7 Akita UniThis university provides all classes in English! I havent taken classes in English before university, so Im struggling to say my opinions in class. However, Im trying hard to say my opinion as much as possible. image5 odori


Im a member of ‘Yatose’ club in university. ‘Yatose’ is another way to say ‘Yosakoi’ in Tohoku area. There are many exchange students in my university and in the ‘Yatose’ club too. We practice in English! We are having a great time dancing ‘Yatose’.


Why I chose to study there?

I want to be a teacher in the future. To become a English teacher, I think it is important to have good English proficiency. In my university, I have to take classes in English and I have to go study abroad for one year. I want to improve my English skills from those experiences. Also, my university is a liberal arts university. I can learn various kinds of subjects. Current education aims to gain students critical thinking skills by using knowledge from many subjects, so I think teachers also have to gain skills like that. This is why I entered my university.


How EIC influenced your life?

image0 with Fanny   EIC has broaden my perspective. Meeting with people from many countries,     

   learning about what is happening in the world, and understanding other countries

   culture. These three are the things I have learned in EIC. I was only ten years old

   back then, and I was surprised at everything, because I haven’t learned those

   things in school. After EIC, I searched about the problem in the world and expand

   my perspective. These experiences have become the motive for my future career

   as a teacher. I want to play a role as EIC to my students.

Next challenge or dream?

My next challenge is studying abroad. In my university, every student has to study abroad forJapanese culture one year. I want to study education there. However, I also want to study other things to expand my perspective. Im currently interested in how Japanese culture and history are educated in other countries. I have this interest because many exchange students who came to my university said that they choose Japan because they are interested in Japanese culture and history. Also, I learned Japanese culture and history from Japanese perspective, but if I learn it in other country, I think I can have different perspective to look into our culture and history.


Message to EIC family:
