Opportunity of the studying abroad, purpose

There are two things I want to achieve through studying abroad. The first is to master the Japanese language. You may think that using the word of “master” is ambiguous, but I have set my own reasonings. I want to reach a level where I can teach Japanese. Now I know that "being good at Japanese" and "good at teaching Japanese" are completely different things. But I don’t want to change my standard. This is because people who are able to teach Japanese well must also be good at Japanese.
The second is to better my qualifications as a Japanese teacher, as I’m a studying to become one. I was originally scheduled to go to educational practice this year, however, due to the restricting of COVID-19, the studying abroad program had just re-started. So, I was at a crossroads. With much consideration, I decided to study abroad. Studying abroad will be a choice without regret, even if my educational practice was postponed and I will graduate a little later. Above all, the depth of knowledge that teachers who have studied abroad to teachers who have not, may appear completely different to the students. If you can teach a class based on what you have gained from your study abroad experience, it will be a much more fulfilling experience.
