Opportunity of the studying abroad, purpose

Since I was a child, I liked Japanese animation and became interested in Japanese. I started learning Japanese When I go to university.While studying Japanese, I became interested in Japanese culture. I want to go to Japan ,to see what I learned in the textbook with my own eyes. When I was in the second grade of university, I applied for the exchange study program of Himeji Dokkyo University and I got a chance.
There are two goals to achieve through this exchange study abroad. The first one is to improve Japanese language ability. At the University in China, I have less chance to speak Japanese, so while in Japan I would like to talk to as many Japanese as possible and try to speak Japanese well. The second one is to experience Japanese traditional culture and gain a deep understanding of Japanese culture.

Experience while studying abroad

I was able to study with students from different countries when I entered Himeji Dokkyo University . When I first presented in the presentation class, I was very nervous and my voice trembled. However,I have been used to presenting now. Through this class I became a little more confident. And of all the classes I have taken, my favorite class is Japanese Literature. The teacher's class was very interesting and I heard about Japanese writers such as Shimazaki Touson , Natsume Soseki and Mori Ogai. Thanks to the teacher's class, I became interested in Japanese literature.
I’m not only studying Japanese,but also participating in various activities. On March 3, 2019, I participated in the Japanese Speech Contest organized by the Himeji City Foundation for Cultural Exchange. I talked about the theme of "walking Himeji Castle". It was a valuable experience for me to be able to talk on such a large stage for the first time .

Results of study abroad, future goals

How time flies. Life in Japan has already been a year, and study abroad life will end this week. Looking back on my study abroad life during this one year, I was able to learn a lot and grow up. I also found my future goals.
When I just came to Himeji, I couldn't hear any dialects at all. Now I can hear some dialects. Using Seishun 18 ticket, I can travel alone and have the courage to try what I want to do. I had many experiences for the first time in my life. The first study abroad, the first autumn leaves, the first heavy snow, the first cherry blossoms, the first fireworks display ... all the first time it has become an important treasure. This short one year study abroad life is an unforgettable memory for me. I would like to go on studying Japanese even if I return home. The future goal is to advance to Japanese graduate school. I think that one day I will come back to Japan again.
Finally, thank you very much for adopting me as a HUMAP Scholarship Scholar. From now on, I will continue to study more and continue to work on my dreams.
