I learned a lot from discussions with classmates and teachers.
In addition to Japanese education, I learned a lot of other things at the Japanese Language Teacher Training Course that are useful in the classroom, such as history, geography, linguistics, phonology, and more. Additionally, I received a large boost to my confidence through the two practicum experiences, daily presentations, debates, and discussions with other students. Further, in May of the year I graduated, I found employment at the Study Tech Institute, where I work to this day. I conduct classes centered on conversation practice for students who have completed fundamental studies in order to improve their communicative competence. The meaningful year I spent in the Japanese Language Teacher Training Course has helped me become what I am today. Even now, the days I spent at Bunka Institute of Language are the most fond memories I have.

Practicum experiences were very hard but valuable.
I learned everything required to be a Japanese language teacher in one year of the Japanese Language Teacher Training Course. What I liked was that there was a lot of discussion among students, not just getting answers from teachers. Practicum Experiences were very hard because of preparations for lessons and the review after teaching, but it was really a good experience for me. Teachers were kind enough to give us advice on various matters while I was a student, and even today they still kindly answer me when I ask questions to them. I am so grateful to those teachers.

The course laid the foundation for pursuing graduate study.。
Expertise is valued at graduate schools, yet there is still a need to have a wide range of basic knowledge. For someone like me who aims to study Japanese language education, the year I spent in the Japanese Language Teacher Training Course laid the foundation for this. As the curriculum was developed for overseas students, I was able to both improve my teaching ability and further my knowledge of the Japanese language. On top of this, a new path opened up for me. Thanks to all the people I met in the Japanese Language Teacher Training Course.
