This study also describes the results obtained in a study which utilized the present corpus.

     View Summary

    This presentation reports on the 2018 YNU Summer Program which was held to promote a &quotcollege experience in Japan&quot for international students. A Total of 25 students from 6 countries and regions participated in the program. This year, no Japanese language class was provided for the summer program, and the students participated in the pre-existing Japanese language and other classes. Furthermore, a graduate college orientation was held to encourage the students to consider YNU as a study abroad option. In the presentation, we will discuss how we made changes in the curriculum based on the survey results from the previous year and talk about future planned improvements.
