I came to Japan three times before, and I have many Chinese friends living in Japan. In this stay I found some good aspects of Japanese lifestyle. For example, there are a lot of 24/7 convenience stores, and Japanese follow the strict rules about garbage separation. These things made me decide to study in Japan.
Yes, After graduating from the university in Nanjing, I studied at Keele University in Britain for one year. I studied chemistry and my major was synthetic organic chemistry.
I want to enroll the faculty of science and engineering of Waseda University. I also want to get Ph.D. To be honest, I prefer Tokyo Institute of Technology. I am not planning to go back to China, my future plan is to keep studying at the university in Japan, or to study at a laboratory of Japanese company. There are a lot of outstanding Japanese researchers, and some of them won the Nobel prize. This fact is one of the reasons why I want to stay in Japan. I really want to study hard and spread my research all over the world.
Yes, after graduation I want to enter post-graduate to study education and economics. This is one of the reasons why I came to Japan. When I was living in China, I got high score in the national standard test, and I passed the entrance exam of Qingdao Institute of Technology. But I set a higher goal, and I decided to enter university in Japan.
Before graduating from junior high school I traveled Japan with my family. I had a good impression, and this is why I chose Japan. As a first impression, Japan is beautiful and quiet. I remember every Japanese helped us sincerely and patiently when we asked something.
I don’t think so, because I am Chinese. Even if I don’t understand anything when I read, I can imagine what that means by the kanji character. Chinese and Japanese have in common in terms of meaning of the character and writing system, and it helps me a lot.
In Japan, everything keep changing constantly, so it is hard to acquire knowledge about Japan. But nobody knows what will happen in the future. I don’t have a future plan now, but it may be good to turn my hobby into my job.
I always remember many things about my school life. I participated a lot of extracurricular activities, and that made me help to understand Japanese culture.
Through the extracurricular activities I had opportunities to make Japanese friends.
I had a great opportunity to take hearty recommendation by Teacher Yoshiko Sakata, and thanks to her I got a job in Japan. I really appreciate sincere instruction and backup by the teachers of Urawa International School.
I didn’t know anything when I came here first, but I thought many signboards written in Japanese were very cool and interesting.
I started a part-time job at a home delivery company, and I found that Japanese were very strict about time. I thought I needed to have an opportunity to talk to customers to improve my Japanese, so I changed my job. Now I am working at a restaurant. My responsibility is to work at a kitchen and to serve customers. My Japanese is a bit better than before.
I want to enter vocational school or university. After that my hope is to find a car-related company in Japan. I really love cars. I want to assemble Lamborghini with my own hands. This is my desire. About Japanese foods, I like sushi. My elder brother have not eaten sushi, although seven years have passed since he came to Japan, so I want to go to sushi restaurant with him.
My brother-in-law loves Japan. When I was a child I got interested in Japan because of him. I started studying Japanese when I was fifteen, and a few times I worked as a volunteer guide for tourists from Japan. To study Japanese more, I also worked at Karaoke shop aimed at Japanese tourists.
Japanese “Samurai” attracted me so much. I watched the movie “Seven Samurai” by Akira Kurosawa and was so impressed with that. I hope to introduce many things about Japan and Japanese culture to Uzbekistani, and I want to contribute to cultural exchange between Japan and Uzbekistan.
I studied IT engineering in my country, but I wanted to study Japanese, so I came to Japan in June 2018. At first I couldn’t speak Japanese fluently, and kanji character was so tough to learn. But thanks to my teachers at Urawa International School my speaking skill improved a lot.
The best thing is there are a lot of jobs in Japan. Now I am working at a food factory at night. It is tough but I’m doing my best. I want to enter a school, and after graduation I will go back to Cambodia to make my own car-related company.
Sri Lankan language is called Sinhalese, and its character is completely different from Japanese one. It was hard for me to learn Japanese at first, but now I improved a bit.
I found a lot of supermarkets and convenience stores, and I thought everything is more convenient here than Sri Lanka. But I think prices in japan are so high.
Yes, I am working at a fast-food hamburger shop. 65% of our staff is foreigners, and there are also Sri Lankan, Nepalese and Vietnamese. At first I had to grill meats and it was difficult for me, but now I am used to it. Except this I also serve customers. Sometimes I teach something about our job to the other staff.
I entered a vocational school thanks to my teachers’ backup. In the future I want to be an IT engineer and make smart phone applications or a program of car navigation system. I really hope to live in Japan with my family.
To make it easier to accept many Sri Lankan as international student, it would be great if I could introduce our Japanese language school to the people living in Sri Lanka. “Kiribath” is a famous Sri Lankan cuisine which is made with rice and coconut milk. We eat it when we celebrate or have some events. It is very delicious, I hope you try.
In my opinion, many Japanese are busy and it is hard for foreigners to live in Japan in the beginning. I couldn’t even order something at the restaurant. Now I can do that anyway.
Teachers of Urawa International School are very kind and good-natured. In our class there are Vietnamese, Chinese, Nepalese, Bangladeshi and others, and we talked about many kinds of things in Japanese. That was so useful for me to make non-Japanese friends.
I became second-grader in April, and now I am planning to enter school after graduation. I love old people, so my hope is to work at a nursing care institution in Japan.
When I came to Japan, I didn’t even know how to ride on a train, because we don’t have it in Bhutan. Of course I couldn’t read Japanese, so it was so difficult to read signboards at the stations.
In my opinion, hiragana and katakana is easy but kanji is so tough to learn. But many Japanese helped me to study Japanese, so I can barely have conversation in Japanese now. I am going to start studying to enroll in a school. My plan is to study about business, and after that I will go back to Bhutan and make my own company.
I came to Japan in April. I found beautiful flowers around the airport, and that made me think Japan is safe and peaceful country. About studying Japanese, hiragana and katakana is easy but kanji is difficult. But the more you speak Japanese, the more you get interested in it.
I studied accountancy at Ed-Mark University in Nepal. After graduating from Urawa International School, I want to enroll in Japanese university to study about business, and I really hope to join a good company. My dream is to make money and donate it for the poor orphans in Nepal.
When I came here first, I felt it was quieter than my country Uzbekistan. I also thought streets were not so crowded as I imagined, because our capital city Dhaka is so crowded. Trains come often in Japan, so transportation is convenient here.
Yes, but If you study hard at Urawa International School you can improve quickly. We also improved a lot thanks to our teachers’ instruction. Now I understand Japanese and enjoy my daily life.
I have a part-time job, I am so busy there and my boss sometimes scolds me when I am late. But I learned how punctuality is important in living in this society.
I want to pass the entrance exam of vocational school. In the future I will try to find a job relating to IT. I hope to support my parents financially.
There are a lot of sightseeing spots in Bangladesh like Cox’s Bazar. I really hope you travel in my country.
My dream is to get a car-related job in Japan. Japanese car makers like Toyota, Honda, Nissan are famous in India. And you know Indian automobile maker Tata Motors is also well-known globally. I think Japanese technology such as automobile development is excellent. After finishing my study at Urawa International School, I want to join a car-related company in Japan. If it’s possible, I want to bring my family here and live together.
