After joining this University,
how did you improve your English skills ?
Nonogami：But the presentations are fun! In my Practical Communication class, I gave a marketing presentation just like the ones used in real business. I learned real business English that way and it’s been a big help.
Nonogami：The students here really do come from a wide variety of countries. For example, Nepal, Taiwan, and Denmark. I’m a student from Malaysia, and a lot of students speak English as a second foreign language as I do. The atmosphere here is like living in a different country.
Muranishi：What’s great about this Department is that we can learn about all kinds of things—cultures, political systems, societies, you name it. We become aware of so many things we would never have learned surrounded by other Japanese students. It broadens your horizons.
Tell us about some memorable episodes for you at the Department of Global Business.
Muranishi：Sharing cultures and different ways of thinking with people from other countries is fun! And the feedback I get from my classmates after a presentation is really valuable. It’s a great motivator and it makes me want to improve my English all the more.
Muranishi：Awesome! Sounds like fun! Invite me along next time! I get together with everyone after class too. Just recently we played futsal together. We formed multinational futsal teams. It was a blast.
What are your dreams for life after you graduate?
Nonogami：Wow, that’s a beautiful dream! For me, after I do an internship in Japan and get some work experience in the business world here, picking up some confidence, I want to work in Europe or the United States.
Muranishi：I also want to do business on the world stage. I want to study, do internships—I want to challenge myself in all kinds of ways.
