Looking Abroad: Two lectures
Thursday, July 18, 4:20 – 5:50 in Room 6206
As English Department students who are studying a foreign language, you probably often think about studying or even working abroad. This month’s lecture will give you an opportunity to see two views of an overseas experience.
In the second semester of 2012, Ms. Amioka traveled to the US to spend 6 months studying and home staying in Arizona. In this lecture, she will discuss her reasons for going there, her experiences in the universities, and her reactions to a new culture and lifestyle. This will be of great interest to anyone considering a long-term study abroad experience.
Mr. Green was born in New Zealand, lived in the UK for 25 years, then NZ, and finally here in Japan for the last 5 years. He is currently a high school ALT in Tagawa. In his presentation, he will talk about getting a job in another country, visa requirements, where to look for a job, and overall job-hunting strategies.
