Nanzan University's Center for Japanese Studies is an excellent opportunity for students to learn much of the Japanese language that is used every day. On the news or in my Japanese friends' conversations, I often hear the grammar that we had gone over in class. Since what we learned in the course was Japanese that was readily used in everyday conversation, I was able to speak much more freely to my Japanese friends and was able to express my opinion properly. Although I am far from mastering the language, seeing the progress I've made over just one semester is very rewarding. In addition to seeing improvement in myself, I've also seen growth in the other students. Studying in such an intense program really brings the class together as a group and forges friendships. The friends I've made in this program are some of the best I've ever made in my life. Studying, doing skits, presentations and speeches together for roughly 15 weeks is grueling but absolutely worth the time and effort it takes to complete the program. At the start, I didn't know if I was prepared for the class; however, with the help of my teachers, my classmates and my friends in the program, I've deepened my understanding and appreciation of the Japanese language. I'm so grateful to Nanzan University and glad I gave it my all.
