Debriefing Session of overseas studies

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 14:16

   The debriefing session of overseas studies, mainly done in this summer, was held yesterday in Shiki Museum at Matsuyama city. It started with the Hula Dance performance by members who participated in Hawaii University study tour.

   At first, presenters explained what they have experienced and thought through each field work in Taiwan, Jakarta, and Korea. Let me share some key phrases. “It is important to speak and explain in your own words to people who have different sense of values and thoughts. With patience to work tenaciously until the parson is convinced.” “Japanese has too much prejudice against foreigners. When you communicate with a foreigner, you will understand good points of his/her country.” One of the presentations was done all in English.

   Then, there was a presentation from Ms. Yamauchi, who went to Boston with the help of “TOBITATE Japan” program. She told about how she spent in Boston, where Basketball was a good help for her communication. She concluded that “What I felt through this overseas study was the cultural difference in sensing things, a new idea against Japanese, and the importance of challenge which made me grow up.” We also sensed her growth.

   Last was a presentation from Mr. Takano, who participated in Miura’s Canada Study tour. “What I learned through this tour was an aggressiveness of Canadians, high quality of Japanese skills in machinery, and the need of Language skill.” He has made one big step to a global leader.

   Q&A time was very heated up, which made the session longer than what we planned.

   During this session, we felt that this SGH program is going well because of the help of so many people in and out of Ehime prefecture, and overseas. Thank you very much to all and we still need your cooperation. Hope for your constant cooperation.
