Japanese University Choosing time!

So this week we had our first Year Abroad Meeting (waaah!) I am so excited about my year in Japan!

JAPAN… of course!

So we have to do a little research on the universities offered to us and then put down out first 3 choices. HELP ME! These are the choices…

Aichi Shukutoku University, Nagoya

Kansai Gaidai University, Osaka

Kitakyushu University

Kyushu Sangyo University

Meiji Gakuin University, Tokyo

Nagoya University of Foreign Studies

Obirin University, Tokyo

There are 3 others but they are for higher levels and I might as well not bother because my Japanese is CRAP!

So I don’t really want to go to Kansai, there are so many foreigners there that I might as well go to Europe or America instead, I feel that Nagoya may seem the same? I think I’d prefer to go to Tokyo so maybe Meiji or Obirin? Though I’m very drawn to Kyushu too.

I have to have my choices made in 3 weeks I think so I better get crackin’.

In other news, I have a listening test next week (boo) followed by another oral exam (double boo). For my oral exam I have to come up with problems I might face in Japan, then the teacher gives me some sort of answer and we have general chit chat.

Example 日本に行って、風をひいたら、どうしたらいいですか。

After that bit (which should last about 6 minutes??!!) we have a general pow wow about other things which we can’t prepare for, eek!

Pray for me please

じゃまたね!
