Group picture with some of the Keio students!

At the end of our first week, we visited Keio University. It was a small, but impressive looking campus. Almost immediately we were taken to meet the class in which two of our students were to present in front of. First, one of their students presented on the use of Twitter in Japan. It was well presented and you could tell a lot of hard work and research went into it. It also helped that the presenter spoke English fluently as she had studied in the United States before. Afterwards, Nicholas presented and his presentation was equally impressive as he worked hard on it. If he was nervous, it didn’t show. Our class was all spread apart and mixed in with the Keio students. For me at least, it was easy to make conversation with the students at our table. They were very friendly and curious to know more about us and there were at least three students in our group who spoke fluent or near-fluent English.

I was very grateful to the students who helped us order food in the cafeteria as well. It was fun getting to know them and letting them get to know us during, and after lunch. Overall, it was fun to meet students from another country, in their own country. They were all very friendly and if it was possible, I wouldn’t have mind hanging out with them outside of class.
