There are mainly two reasons why I chose Ehle. One is its course; it’s a full-time course, and it has EJU class that covers sciences and math. I was glad I could study sciences at Ehle and that I didn’t have to separately go to a clam school, which I wouldn’t like, for that. The second reason is school activities; there are many school events to enjoy, like, extracurricular activities or international exchange festivals. It’s very nice to have lots of other things to enjoy as a student than just classes. I enjoyed my days at Ehle so much. The environment’s great, it’s not too up-tight. There are lots of funny teachers that helped me to relax and enjoy classes. Thanks to the environment and the teachers, my Japanese skills have improved so much. The teachers were always available to hear my concerns and questions. That helped me to keep on going, too.
Having my mom being a good doctor, medicine was the field I wanted to study in university. I struggled in studying for university exam a lot and it wasn’t easy until I finally got accepted. I’ve never really thought I was very smart, so, I gave up all the hanging out with my friends, and I just kept on studying Japanese and Sciences so hard for one year and a half. When I first failed a 2nd-stage entrance exam, I was devastated thinking all my effort didn’t get paid off. My mentor kept on supporting and encouraging me and that helped me get back on my feet. In the end, keeping my calm, I took another shot, and I got accepted. I very much appreciate all my teachers and Ehle.
What I’d suggest all the international students who are studying for higher education is to never give up pursuing their dream.
