<Classes>

The level of the class was “Beginner” mainly for those who joined Ritsumeikan Univ. in September.
Students learned daily Japanese conversations mainly, and they acquired the basic conversation,
phrase that are very useful in their daily life. Many Japanese volunteer students also participated
in this program to help international students at each campus. Thanks to their support,

international students were familiar with Japanese soon and they enjoyed joining the class,

studied ambitiously and then made many Japanese friends there!

 

<New trial>

With the support of the Office of International Affairs, classes were held in Beyond Borders Plaza

(BBP) on each campus. BBP offer a variety of events and programs for all students, especially for

those who want to communicate with students from different countries, learn other languages and

exchange cultures each other. This Japanese program became a trigger for international students

to know BBP more and participate in their programs.

 

<In the Last class>

All students were preparing for the skit performance as a result of their study.

The Japanese level of students was various. However, each time they attended the class,

their Japanese skills improved a lot! They did a great job onthe skit performance!!  

They also played Japanese games and a small party with volunteer students was held

as a closing this program. It was very fun and they really enjoyed them!

 

<General Comment>

All participants seemed very satisfied with this program. Japanese of those who joined

this class every time improved a lot! International students got the Japanese text book

for free and became friends with Japanese volunteer students.

We hope they will keep meeting with Japanese students and studying by themselves!!

Report : 2019 Fall Academic Writing Seminar

We held “Academic Writing Seminar” at KIC and BKC on Tuesday, October 15
and Friday, October 18.

 

This seminar focused on the important points of writing thesis in English, and it was

a good chance for graduate students to learn the basic knowledge and skills for writing

high quality theses. This seminar was held in English as an incentive short course for 90 minutes.

The instructor is a native English speaker and his explanation was very clear and specific.

 

All attendees sent the instructor what they aren’t sure and what they want to learn in advance.

Therefore, the instructor gave a class based on their questions and the class was fruitful for all.

 

There are many words and expression in English. It’s very difficult to choose the appropriate words

and expressions for what the writer wants to tell. All attendees realized again that it is very important

for all to use grammars properly to keep the consistency in their papers. We hope all attendees utilize

what they learned and listened during this seminar effectively hereafter.

Report: 2019 Spring English Presentation Seminar

We held “English Presentation Seminar” at KIC, BKC and OIC through June, 16(Tue) to June, 18(Thu).

 

There are many graduate students who are not good at speaking English, not get used to presentation

even they have more chances of having English presentations compared to undergraduate days.

The purposes of this English Presentation Seminar were to support graduate students to learn key points

for good presentation and to present in an effective way.

 

This seminar was held as an incentive short course. 2 classes were taught in English by a native instructor,

 and his explanation was very clear and specific. All attendees gave their own presentation and could realize

 the effectiveness of what they learned in the lecture. This was also a good chance for some attendees to listen to the research content of different research theme and area. The instructor told that the best way to improve their presentation is to record his/her presentation, and look and check it objectively.

We hope all attendees utilize what they learned and listened during this seminar effectively.

 

<Voices from attendees>

・Very interactive and lessons were well delivered.

・Very supportive and cooperative sensei.

・Can remember what's our needs/deficiencies of preparing for presentations.
