Message from the short-term international students
Ms. Lin Yu-Hsuan (Iris)
I am so happy and feel honored that I can come to Ube Kosen to have an internship, for Ube Kosen gives us an opportunity to come here. In these four months, I not only experienced Japanese local culture and made a lot of friends from different countries. The most important is that I had lots of teaching experience, and learned some teaching skills and knowledge. I was so lucky that I could teach different ages of students who study in elementary school, kosen, and university in these four months. All in all, thanks to the teachers, students, and friends here, they really help me a lot.
Ms. Hsieh Pei-Chi (Bella)
First, thanks for Ube Kosen give me this precious opportunity to come to Japan for internship.
It is a big challenge for me to go abroad for internship, especially, it is the first time for me to face the new environment and teachers and students in different country. I have the class in Mizome elementary school, Yamaguchi university and Ube Kosen, I really learned a lot in these four months. From the first day that the kids feel strange about us, and the last day the kids feel reluctantly because of our leaving. It has a large different between every teacher, all the teaching methods are totally different than I thought before. The teacher really take care about us, and support our teaching, I really appreciate for the teachers. At last, I want to thank all the teachers and students for giving me those big support during my internship. Thank you.
