      SJSUに留学して
      学生サポートをきちんとしてくれる学校です。学校の敷地はとってもきれいでカフェテリアも素敵だったし、寮もいい雰囲気でとにかく楽しかったです。図書館には会議室があってそれも使うことが出来、友達とアサインメントをするのに役立ちました。病気になった時も学校内に病院があるので医療費を気にすることなく病院にかかれたのも良かったです。卒業後は留学で得た英語力を活かしてオーストラリアの国際弁護士事務所で働いています。

      半年間の留学
      3週間の観光を兼ねたクラスと8週間の大学入学準備クラスを受講しました。最初のクラスでは基本的な会話や作文を学び、週末にはサンフランシスコ観光もしました。現地での生活に慣れるいいキッカケになったと思います。8週間クラスではまずTOEFLを受験して、その点数でレベル分けされます。Writing、Critical thinking、Public speakingなど、アメリカの大学で学ぶ上で不可欠なスキルを習得しました。授業の内容が濃く、宿題も大変でしたが、先生方が非常に熱心でスキルも高いので、とても充実した8週間でした。学生課のスタッフも頼りがいがあり、進路や生活のことなど何でも相談に乗ってくれます。8週間クラスを修了後は、SALの先生の薦めでサンノゼ州立大学の夏季授業を受講しました。SALの生徒の中には、大学とSALの授業に掛け持ちで出ている人もいました。日本を発つ前にしっかり情報収集&TOEFLの学習をして、現地で効率よく学ぶことをお薦めします。

      留学で得たもの
      今振り返ると、留学はいろんな意味で私を強くしてくれました。 アメリカは自己責任のもとに成り立つ自立を大事にする国なので、最終的には自分で何でも行動しないといけなく、とてもアクティブに行動するようになりました。そのおかげで忍耐力も得られ、自分の手に入れたい情報はすべて自分で調べ、それが自分の知識として残るので、とても精神的に鍛えられました。
