Certified student comment

MOTONAGA Nagisa (3rd-year of the Department of Management Information Engineering)

I got interested in the international exchange activity and foreign languages when I communicated with international students when I was a 2nd-year student. I went to study in Singapore in the same summer, and I learned different cultures and foreign languages by joining Ni-Haro and international exchange events after I came back from Singapore. I could not participate in any activities as I wished due to COVID 19 this year, but I would like to conntinue international exchange activities online in the future.

I received the certificate of “Ube Kosen Global Meister” and the scholarship from Ube Rotary Club. I would like to use the scholarship to improve my language skills, by online English conversation, purchasing TOEIC books.

I managed to obtain communication skills and teamwork skills because I went to study overseas. I was happy that local people understood when I told good part of Japan. I would like to improve my language skills first by connecting overseas as staying in Japan without losing pure and fresh feeling at that time.
