The Faculty of Business and Economics the Department of Business and Economics senior
Yang Guang

From Shan Dong Sheng, China NBU Bekka

What is the reason for studying in Japan?
I have been interested in Japanese economy, so I decided to study in Japan to learn economics in Japan where economy has developed.
Good points about NBU
I knew about NBU from a senior student of a Japanese language school in China who had studied at NBU. The best point of NBU is to learn economics in which I have been interested since I was a high school student. There are a lot of professors in NBU who have worked at big companies, and their lectures are “real “and “practical”. That made me confident to work in the society and made me possible to get a job.
How is the life in Oita?
I got a job at a trading company as I started job hunting since I was senior. With “Japanese” and “economics” I have learned, I will do my best to bridge the economy between Japan and China.
Future dream
I got a job at a trading company as I started job hunting since I was senior. With “Japanese” and “economics” I have learned, I will do my best to bridge the economy between Japan and China.
Comment to everyone who is going to study in Japan from now!!
I felt that the basic knowledge was very important when you study at university. As the content of study is quite high level and hard, but there are a lot of application of high school level study, it is important to study before you enter university.

The Faculty of Business and Economics the Department of Business and Economics senior
Wang Jing

From He Nang Sheng, China NBU bekka Japanese language institute

 
What is the reason for studying in Japan?
I was interested in Japanese because of Japanese animations and I intended to study in Japan to know deeply about Japanese culture.
Good points about NBU
The points I decided to study at NBU are that there are a lot of Chinese students and that I can study accounting. Also a lot of events such as exchange programs and school trips attract me, not just studying in the classroom.
What is the life in Oita?
As I had few friends, I was lonely at first. When I stated a part time job, I made various friends with NBU students and people from a part time job. It is comfortable for me to live in Oita because of low price and safety. Ozai area where NBU is located is “university town” and it is convenient to live as there are many supermarkets and hospitals around my apartment.
Future dream
Since I study accounting in the Faculty of Business and Economics, I want to be an accountant in China with knowledge I have learned in NBU.
Comment to everyone who is going to study in Japan from now!!
It is very important to have an interest to something, not just learning Japanese. If you study Japanese for future carrier, you might have a frustration. I started to learn Japanese because I wanted to see Japanese animations in Japanese. What you are interested in will lead you to study abroad, so you should have various experiences and find a chance to study abroad that matches you!

The Faculty of Engineering the Department of Aerospace Engineering freshman
BETANCOURT VIZUET HUGO DIEGO

From Mexico NBU Bekka Japanese language institute

What is the reason for studying in Japan?
All the members of my family love Japanese food, especially sushi. There are a lot of Japanese restaurants in Mexico and we often went there on weekends. So I got interested in Japanese culture
Good points about NBU
I am still a freshman and I don’t have confidence in Japanese, but it is helpful to study Japanese through Japanese courses at undergraduate. I am an aerospace engineering major and I can easily understand how airplanes move using the actual objects and simulators. At first, I had a bad feeling not to able to share my own culture with students as there are not so many Mexicans, but now I made a lot of friends at NBU. I think it is wonderful to touch other culture while I am in Japan.
How is the life in Oita?
I grew up in a big city, totally different from Oita, but I really like Oita because of safety and my favorite food sushi. I had trouble mastering “unwritten Japanese on textbooks” when I was working at a restaurant. For example, in a restaurant people call omizu (water) “ohiya”. Also it is difficult to catch “the practical Japanese conversation” such as the pronunciation of Japanese English, that is quite different from English. But now I enjoy conversations using Oita dialect. ( ha! ha! laughter)
Future dream
I wish to get a job at JAL or ANA, Japanese airline companies. I will study hard to find the best type of work as I can learn from design to maintenance of airplanes at NBU.
Comment to everyone who is going to study in Japan from now!!
There is no regret to study abroad!! Let’s step forward!

NBU Bekka Japanese language institute
Sun Zheng Nan

from Shan Dong Sheng, China

What is the reason for studying in Japan?
When I was a high school student, I had a chance to exchange with Japanese high school students. I was impressed with them and that is why I wanted to study more about Japan.
Good points at NBU
I intended to enter university at first, but I didn’t have a confidence in Japanese. NBU has Bekka, the Japanese language institute where you can study Japanese before entering university. Aiming at undergraduate study, Bekka has not only Japanese lessons but also math and English lessons.
How is the life in Oita?
The speed of life in Oita is not as fast as that of big cities. Even a stranger like me can easily catch up with it. Living by myself made me lonely at first, but now I enjoy every day surrounded by many friends in Bekka and NBU.
Future dream
As I have been interested in media for a long time, I want to enter NBU, the Department of Media Technologies. I hope I will be able to work at a TV station in the future after I obtain the technical knowledge.
Comment to everyone who is going to study in Japan from now!!
I can have a conversation in Japanese now though I didn’t have much confidence in Japanese. As NBU has Bekka, let’s enjoy the life in Japan with me!
