Learning a language abroad is, for me, the best way to do it. I think doing this exchange program at Kôbe University will be the best decision I have ever made. As I am doing a Japanese degree (language, literature, history…) in my home country, I have decided to apply for the Faculty of Letters.
Kôbe University is known for receiving a lot of international students from many countries, and I really look forward to be able to make friends with other Japanese students, in Japanese, but also with these international students, in English or Japanese. Moreover, after a trip in Kôbe in 2014, I always wanted to go back there, between the mountains and the sea.
My main goal for this exchange program is obviously to be able to speak and understand Japanese as much as French and English. I hope I would be able to write the next report in Japanese without any mistake. But I am also aiming at leaving my comfort zone, without my parents, learning to live on my own, and understanding a completely different culture.
