    Coming from the other side

    My name is Ricardo, I am 29 years old and currently an international student learning language Bunkyo University. Before I came to Japan to study Japanese, I was looking for an educational institution that shares the same values as me. The "Empathy for all humanity" mission statement of Bunkyo University caught my attention. As an educator myself, who has taught English as a second language, I do believe that lack of empathy makes learning nearly impossible like a barrier between teachers and students.

    All teachers and staff from Bunkyo University have been really kind to me, even before I arrived in Japan. Since then, I have learned a lot from them. Besides, I am having the opportunity to socialize with other Japanese students and students from other different parts of the world, which have enriched my study abroad experience as well.  

    I have many different classes from Monday to Friday, such as JLPT preparation, Integrated Japanese, Geography, History, Kanji, Living in japan, Academic Japanese classes etc. as well as extra activities, lectures and events. I am busy everyday as there is homework to be done, presentations to be prepared, texts to be read and it takes some time to get used to everything. But we, students, also need some time for immersing ourselves in the Japanese culture. So I have tried different food as much as I can, practiced the language with friends and gone sightseeing around the city. So far, my favorite one is Asakusa and I am looking forward to my summer vacation to visit many other places.

    The next step is getting myself prepared for the Master's Degree program. For this, I still have a lot of work to do on my Japanese and research area. I listed a number of reasons why I chose Bunkyo University as the best place to take my study abroad program in Japan and I am thankful for everyone who is part of this journey.

    楽しい別科での学習生活

    写真 Harisudin Muhammad Khalil

    別科生だったときの生活は毎日充実していて、とても楽しかった時間でした。月曜日から金曜日まで文法と語彙、聴解など色々勉強しました。その中で、私にとって一番面白い授業は日本語演習でした。自分でテーマを決めて、いろいろ調べてから発表します。この授業は皆さんが大学生になったら、絶対役に立つと思います。今、私は文教大学あだちキャンパスの国際理解学科の二年生です。毎週、幾つかの国際社会と文化につながる専門授業を受ける必要があり、その授業の中で英語とか他の言語の専門用語を使うため、英語ともう一つの言語の勉強も必要となります。大学の生活は忙しいとはいえ、自分も能力がどんどん鍛えられ、向上していることを喜んでいます。最初は大変な日々になりますが、その最も大変な時間を乗り越えたら、次に待っているのは新しい世界だと思います。

    留学生活を楽しむ

    写真 李 楽俊

    2019年9月、私は日本に来ました。外国人留学生別科で一年半の学習生活を過ごして、別科の推薦入試に合格して文学部日本語日本文学科の学生になりました。大学では専門的な知識を勉強していますが、ときどき別科での生活が懐かしくなります。別科にいる時は日本語を楽しく勉強していましたが不安になったり悩んだりした時には、優しい先生たちと国際交流課の方たちがいるので、すべて相談できました。そして、市内見学とスピーチ大会も自分の視野を広げました。
    日本にいる二年半は、まさに光陰矢の如しです。この間にいろいろな経験を積み重ねて成長したと思います。今の私はいろいろな友達ができて、日本語力も進歩して、過去の自分を超えました。将来、私は日本の会社に就職したいです。そのために、これからもっと頑張りたいと思います。
    皆さんも、ぜひ留学生活を楽しんでください。
