The university teaches in English and we were allowed to take Japanese as a second language. The Japanese courses were very intensive, but we had little opportunity for practise as most of the students are international students and we did not get much chance to mingle with local Japanese students our age or the local community, though some students did have a language exchange partner and joined some Japanese culture clubs.

Japanese was quiet hard to learn ( a lot to memorise) but nice to practice it in daily life. A lot of foreign students from all around the world. Everybody spoke his own english. I brought the french touch !
