Message from conference participants

Associate Prof. Iori Nakaoka (Department of Business Administration)

Taiwan-Japan conference which many Kosen students and faculties participated went very successful. I was in charge of two sessions and made one presentation. I communicated with Taiwanese faculties about my study through the sessions including the questions and answers.
A good part way more than my achievement was that our advanced course students made a good oral presentation session in English as a researcher. I believe they improved their skills through our daily curriculum and training at National United University and the like. I also believe questions the students received would be the not only indication of their future study but provide motivations as well. In addition, it was also a good experience for both regular course students and advanced course students that they made poster presentation sessions of their study and training achievement at National United University in English.
The next conference will be held in Takamatsu, Kagawa (Anan Kosen in charge, Kagawa Kosen in charge of venues) and I expect that it will be successful as well for more international exchanges and communication between Kosen.


Associate Prof. Nakaoka was in charge of Business oral presentation session and also made his own presentation.

I made a presentation of my special study in English first time at Materials Science and Chemical Engineering session at the third Taiwan-Japan International conference. I was worried because everything was done in English including questions and answers, but I managed to make it and it gave me confident.
We had a welcome party the night before and I enjoyed meals and conversations with teachers and students from various countries like Taiwan and Korea. I realized that I needed to improve my English skills by joining this conference. I would like to continue learning English in order to use it better.
