I came to Japan to enter a Japanese language school in October 2009, in which this is the first time to come here. After graduating the school, I went to university, then started to work in a Japanese company.
Now, I have been in Japan for more than 10 years, so I got used to the culture and customs of Japan.
As an ex-international student, I think I can understand what you might feel, so ask me whatever you want.
I want you to improve knowledge, so do not forget your first intention, and focus on your study. The world will be getting united soon. It is coming that the age of “Global village”. For the future, develop yourself and be a representative of the new world.

Ami先生


Ms,Ami

I was born in an international family so foreign countries were something familiar and also I was used to hearing foreign languages. I studied in Australia and acquired communication ability which is the basis of international interaction. Also, through experience of living together with foreigners as home-stay, I not only learned foreign culture and customs but also acquired adaptability. I hope I can help foreign students to understand Japanese custom and culture with my own experience.
