Opportunity of the studying abroad, purpose

It has been a week since I came to Japan. I think that a lot of valuable memories has been piled up during this week and I am really glad that I came to Japan.
Because of my parents' work, I started to touch Japanese since I was a little child. From the childhood, I became very interested in this neighboring country of China which called Japan. After graduating from the high school, without hesitation I chose Japanese as my major. And as I started to learn more and more Japanese culture, I began to aim for Japanese teachers. I found a part-time job as a Japanese teacher and teach students to learn Japanese in my vacations. Nowadays, there are more and more people want to study Japanese in China. Some of my students study Japanese because of work needs, and some people want to learn Japanese because they are very interested in Japanese anime. I felt very happy and proud to see that they can communicate in Japanese and show a satisfied smile because of the achievement of learn more about the outside world. This special experience has left a deep impression on me. I would like to help students who are interested in Japanese like me as possible as I can in the future.
Therefore, I would like to have a good command of necessary knowledge in Japan and develop my ability. In addition, as a good Japanese teacher, it is also important to know more about Japanese culture and customs. So, I think that I must see the most realistic Japan with my own eyes here.
Although it is a short period of one week, I felt the fun of studying abroad, and I have learned a lot of things. I hope to make use of what I learned in Japan and spread Japanese culture in China.

Experience while studying abroad

It will be coming to nine months soon from the first time I arrived in Japan. During the last nine months, I have learned a lot from the life in Japan. The abilities of Japanese and research are increased. Various professional knowledge are greatly expanded. I think my study life in Japan is very substantial.
I major in Japanese at my Chinese University, so I had to participate in almost language knowledge course. However, in the Hyogo University of Teacher Education, various classes can be freely chosen. Not only the language class but also the desire of oneself. I was very happy to join in a lot of interesting classes such as history, politics and psychology. “Legend and history” is my favorite course. In this class, the teachers and the students often discuss the history of modern China and share the opinions to each other. It is the first time that I learned about the history of my country from the perspective of a foreigner. It was great and interesting.
And I also learned a lot from the seminar in every week. My teacher gave me a lot of valuable opinions on my research, and my Japanese friends also help me and encouraged me.
Thanks to my studying life in Japan. I am more confident than before. I will continue to do my best and send a happy every day.

Results of study abroad, future goals

It will be coming to one year soon from the first time I arrived in Japan. In the past year, I had a fun and fulfilling life, and I have learned a lot from the life in Japan. I made lots of friends, and left a lot of memories, and now I have a lot of thoughts about my study life in Japan before I come back to China. I feel a little sad when I think about that my study life in Japan will be over soon.
Through studying abroad for the past year, of course, the abilities of Japanese are increased. And various professional knowledge are greatly expanded. I have learned a lot and I think my study life in Japan is very substantial.
All of the classes at Hyogo University of Teacher Education are interesting and worth studying. By taking various classes, I learned not only expert knowledge but also Japanese culture very much. Besides, it is very pleasing and meaningful to study with teacher and Japanese students once a week in seminars. Mr. Okazaki and my friend gave countless helps to me, and I took some research results under the effort of everyone.
The study abroad life at Hyogo University of Teacher Education has made me grow a lot. In the future, I would like to study or work in Japan again if I have a chance.
