Message from short-term international students
Teo Hong Zheng
I am thankful and grateful for the opportunity I was given to have went to Kosen. I got to learn so much about the Japanese culture and a whole new topic of studies. I am glad that the students and teachers in Kosen are so kind and always there to lend a helping hand. They made the 3 months of my stay enjoyable and unforgettable.

My time in Ube Kosen was a wonderous one, I’ve learnt many new techniques relating to my chemical engineering studies, the Japanese culture and even made quite a few friends in there. I’m grateful to my supervisors and labmates for guiding me with my projects. The biggest challenge I’ve faced is finding out what I’m able to consume due to my religion, but it is tackled via the help of some international and Japanese students. I would like to thank the people who supported me throughout this programme and made the three months there a memorable one.
I am glad that I can come to Japan to have an internship. I appreciate not only Ube Kosen but also Kawakami elementary school provides me a nice learning and teaching environment. In these three months, I did my best to communicate with people and design the lessons, I think my teaching skill is getting better and better. What’s important is that I become more independent than before, and finished all different kind of tasks by myself. Besides, I also made a lot of friends from different countries, it was a special experience for me. In a nutshell, thanks everyone for taking good care of me, I will not forget everything that happened in Japan.
