Message from students (school year is when they joined the training.)
Mr. Atsuki Oyama(2nd year at Department of Intelligent System Engineering)
I took English classes which taught by teachers from United States, United Kingdom and some other countries at English Village of Yeungjin University.
All of the English classes was fun, and I believe my English conversation level was improved because I had many opportunities to talk to English teachers.
I was worried because visiting Korea was my first trip to overseas, but people in Korea were kind and the environment was great. I spent my time very comfortably.
The experience I had in this training will be benefits for my future. And I would like to visit to other countries to learn more before I graduate from Kosen.
Ms. Risa Sogo(1st year at Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering)
I was very worried because it was my first overseas and first studying abroad. But I had great two weeks because my friends also joined the training, and English teachers at English Village.>This training made me like English more and made me want to go to study abroad again. I thought studying abroad was too early for me because I was only 1st year student, but I was glad that I had courage to join the training.
