Welcoming Japanese Students from Tottori University for our English Language Study Program!

This March, we are thrilled to welcome 16 students from Tottori University, Japan, to our Department of Applied English for an enriching four-week English language study program. From March 4th to March 27th, these students will embark on a lively and interactive journey to enhance their English skills through a curriculum that not only covers the core skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing but also delves into cross-cultural understanding, English for technology, drama/readers theater, presentation skills, and British tea culture.

To kick off their stay, our department hosted a welcoming party on March 5th. Dr. Wang Chaochang, the Chair of the Department of Applied English, gave an inspiring talk, encouraging the students to be open-minded towards the local culture and to strive for excellence in improving their English abilities. Dr. Wang also expressed her commitment to support them in every aspect of their stay.

In addition to the academic curriculum, we have assigned Teaching Assistants to provide both academic and personal support, ensuring a smooth adjustment to life and studies here. The in-class TAs assist with learning during lessons. The living TAs will provide guidance on homework during the ninth period and will also assist students in adapting to their daily lives.

We look forward to an exciting and productive few weeks ahead, filled with learning, cultural exchange, and friendship. Welcome, Tottori University students, to our community!
