I have applied for an internship in France for two reasons. First, I am interesting in the historical culture of France and the language's unique pronunciation. Second, I want to brush up on my French speaking skills . I have learned French as my second foreign language at college and I want to learn it not just in lectures but also through actual communication.
I have two main objecties in going to France. The first one is to place myself in an environment surrounded by French speakers. I have few chances to learn French from native speakers, so this internship is a valueable opportunity. The second one is to see how much Japanese culture is known to French people. I would like to tell them about Japanese culture find out differences between Japan and France.
My activity is visiting primary schools, junior high schools, high schools and universities in France to teach about Japanese culture.
And also I had chance to meet women from Japan. We talked about why they are still abroad and what they are thinking about being abroad.
I had learn many things in France. One of the important thing I learned was the skill of communication ability. I found I have to study not only French but also English.
I'll continue my study.
I want to thank all of the people who was involved with this project.
