Opportunity of the studying abroad, purpose

My major in Vietnam is Japanese but I didn't have any chance to use it.
I believe that I will have great condition to use and improve my Japanese when studying in Japan.
I want to study much and experiment much in the time I live in Japan. I believe that I could really study a lot of things.
Through three years studying Japanese, my desire that I could contact with Japanese culture and people which has been become bigger day by day. It will be wonderful if I could study abroad in this beautiful country. Moreover, I will have to do all the things in my life by myself, it's really difficult but it helps me to get more experience and make me more grow up.

Archiving N2 and N1 in Japanese language proficiency test is one of my study abroad purposes. Moreover, i want to improve my Japanese to be as good as native speakers.
Second, i would like to study more intensively about Japanese traditional cultures.
I'm very interested in Japanese cultures such as kimono, tea ceremony, traditional acts. I'm really appreciated if i could study more about cultures.
Last but not least, i would like to take experience of Japanese life style. Especially, Japanese manner and etiquette. i think it's hard to understand the Japanese life style if we don't live in Japan once.

Because of those reasons, i think it's a good opportunity for me to understand more about the Japanese.
From now on, i will try my best to study Japanese.

Experience while studying abroad

This is the first time i went aboard in Japan. At first I was wondering whether I could make it through or not.
Thanks to Shinwa university 's teachers I quickly got familiar with this lifestyle than I thought.
Shinwa university ' s teachers were very kind and friendly. I can even felt the cozy atmosphere all around the university.

I was able to experience Japanese's cultures which I have read when I was in Vietnam.
I made wagashi which is the most popular sweet in japan by myself. Having a chance making wagashi was a very precious experience to me.
I also went to summer festival where we could enjoy fireworks. In Vietnam we do have fireworks in new year. But the Japanese often enjoy it in summer.
I also volunteered in a campaign named - kids open campus. Having a chance talking with the kids made me believe that my study is useful.
Thanks to studying abroad, I'm grateful for having a chance meeting and making friends from various countries.
Through such experiences, I became able to understand more about Japanese society and culture.

I think if we don't go to Japan we can not truly experience the Japanese cultures.
The life of studying abroad is wonderful. I enjoy every single day in japan.

Results of study abroad, future goals

After a year of studying abroad, my Japanese level have been improved very much.
Not only daily conversation but also business Japanese.

From now on, I will try my best to study more and more about Japanese.
In the future, I want to be a Japanese teacher. To archive my goal, I know that I have to study harder than now.
I would like to tell all my experiences I have had in Japan, for example, cultures, manners I have learned in Japan as a motivation for my students in the future.
Moreover, I want the Vietnamese to know more about Japan`s beauty.

I have made a lot of unforgettable memories through studying abroad.
I am looking forward to seeing my friends and teachers once again in the future.
