Hello! My name is Kaori and I am currently a sophomore at Boston University. In middle school I enjoyed reading Harry Potter, but I am currently an avid reader of nonfiction. I would recommend that you read anything that you are interested in, whether it is a fashion magazine or a newspaper article! The more you read, the more comfortable you will feel using English. :)
I’m currently a medical student (MD - expected graduation May 2021) at Yale University. My interests in the medical field are very broad (I’ve done a lot of lab research as well as emergency medicine volunteering), but one aspect I find fascinating is the patient’s narrative and experience of disease. I graduated from Columbia University in 2016 double majoring in Biology and English/Comparative Literature. The biggest piece of advice I have for students in Japan is to do as much reading (books, journal articles, newspaper, etc…) they can in order to familiarize themselves with the language. Though difficult at times, forms of written media contain examples of the proper use of grammar, diction, idioms, etc… Even today I come across new words I’ve never seen before in more advanced texts (e.g. works of philosophy).
Hi everyone! My name is Haruka and I'm a sophomore at Hitotsubashi university. I major in economics. I'm not so good at sports, but I belong to the archery club at university. My hobby is to watch movies, listen to music, and play the piano.
Learning a new language is exciting and teaches us a lot of new things. I hope I can help you enjoy learning English :)
