Exchange Student Comment

University of Kent student
“ When I first arrived at Musashi, I could barely say my name in Japanese. Now (3 years later), after a little hard graft, I have advanced OCR qualifications in Japanese. It was Musashi University that first sparked my motivation for learning Japanese.”

“ The Japanese language courses helped me improve my Japanese. During the lessons we also learned about daily conversation and how to use Japanese in a variety of situations. The teachers put great effort into bringing us in contact with Japanese students. They organized projects where we had to work together with a Japanese partner and especially at the beginning it helped a lot to get to know conversational speech. I want to thank our Japanese teachers for inviting us for dinner at their home and for showing us around Yokohama and Tokyo.”
