Japanese Program Newsletter - Vol. 9, 2021

Hello everyone, This is the WCU Japanese program newsletter, Fall 2021. It has been such a challenging year and I am sure that we have all struggled. I really hope this academic year will be better in many ways. Here, I am sharing five video messages in Japanese with English subtitles. They were made by the students from JPN452: Advanced Conversation – Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) prep in spring 21. They talk about themselves regarding studying Japanese language, culture, and MORE. These are their stories. For those who are thinking about starting to study Japanese, those students were there as you are now. For those who have just started Japanese, they struggled a lot as you have. For those who have been studying Japanese for a while, you are heading for the level these students are exemplifying here. They are sharing their stories with you and conveying their messages with care and enthusiasm to encourage you in your studies. I hope you enjoy them. - The Japanese Program
