ASEP 2010 日本語

It was the second time to join the ASEP for me. I wanted to learn not only English but also what experiential learning is. I have taken part in the WYM 2008-2010 and the ASEP 2009-2010. They look like presentation events in Asia but they are not mere presentation events. The WYM and the ASEP include a lot of contents; to communicate with foreign students, to improve negotiation skills and to get problem solving abilities. These contents are difficult to get from classroom lectures. I believe that to communicate with foreign people is the most important thing to study in English. However, we have few opportunities to communicate with people in English in Japan. So, we can not understand why English is so important in our daily life. Therefore, I think this learning experience is one good way to know about that.

For example, we met many foreign people at the ASEP 2010. I also made a lot of foreign friends there. But after I came back to Japan, it is difficult for us to meet face to face between Japan to Taiwan. Then, we have to communicate on the Internet e-mails, Skype or Facebook and so on. Of course our language is English. If you contact with overseas friends in English everyday, don’t you study English more to talk about a lot of things?


How to Nourish the relation

To join international collaborative events like the WYM or the ASEP, we can learn so many things. I could come to understand that it is experiential learning to join international collaborative events and cooperate with foreign students. Moreover, these ways of learning are not only during the events but also continue after coming back to Japan.


Finally, I really appreciate my professor for giving us this good opportunity for participating in ASEP 2010. I could learn a lot of things from that. From this experience, I want to know more about experiential learning events like the WYM or the ASEP.
