      Nice Experience
      Learning at UCSD is a good choice. The transportation around campus can be challenging, but I liked the school overall.

      UCSD CLASSROOM
      UCSD EXTENSION的教室與學校裡的其他教室及上課環境相比較,是非常的差,非水泥的矮房子,教室與教室間的隔音很差,感覺是很不被重視的一群
      學校的老師都非常的好,人親切,上課也很認真
      UCSD,LA JOLLA是個很棒的區,環境優適合去念書和旅遊

      学生は、イタリア人、ブラジル人、トルコ人、インド人、韓国人2名、そして私という少人数クラス。其々のお国訛りの英語のため、多様な英語を聞き取る能力は特に強化されたと思います。授業が午前中だったため、昼食後は、隣接するUCSDのキャンパスや大学の図書館で宿題していました。勉強に飽きたら近くのビーチでリラックス。野生のイルカやアザラシも見ることができました。

      I love UCSD
      私はアメリカに留学する前、中国に留学していました。その時、知り合った外国の友人達のほとんどが英語の日常会話ができるのに、自分ができないのがとても悔しかったです。その時、日本へ帰国したら次は英語の日常会話ができるようになりたいという目標を掲げ、UCSDに留学しました。UCSDはアメリカ西海岸でも優秀な大学であり、そこで勉強できたのは誇りに思います。実際、授業のカリキュラムもしっかりしていて、自分の好きな授業を選べます。例えば、私の場合は会話を最重要視していたので、ほとんど会話中心の時間割りを、友人の中にはTOEICの点数を向上させるために、文法中心の子もいました。また、月水金は朝8時30分から、火木は10時30分から開始というような曜日によって開始時間も変わり、メリハリがあるので良かったです。どの生徒もcore classとlistening classは必修で後は自分で選択できます。宿題も多いですが、それを実行すれば必ず英語力アップに繋がるはずです。私が学校環境を3にした利用は、教室がプレハブみたいな所だからです。しかし、勉強するには問題ありません。

      Wonderfulな経験です。
      初めて英語圏進出と海外留学でしたので最初はとても不安でした。当時の私の語学力は、TOEIC450点、会話はしたことがなく、リスニングにも自信がありませんでした。ですが、今では、本当に行ってよかったと心から思います。この留学は、何にも代え難い宝物となりました。
      1.学校
      授業は、楽しくアカデミックに学べました。先生方はとても親しみやすく、楽しい先生方ばかりです。宿題は、クラスにもよると思いますが、ちょっと大変だったように思います。
      レベルによってクラスがそれぞれ分かれますので、自分の力を確実に向上できると思います。私は、1タームのみの留学でしたが、見違えるように、会話とリスニング、ライティングなどの力が伸びました。それには、学校での勉強がとてもよかっただけでなく、以下の環境面で恵まれたことが大きいと思います。
      2.アパートメント
      わたしは、4人でルームシェアをする学校指定のアパートに入りました。様々な国の人たちと一緒に住むことで、異文化理解が深まりました。かけがえのない仲間と出会い、素晴らしい時間を過ごせました。文化の違う人間同士が一緒に住むことは、大変な面もあったと思いますが、他の人たちもみんなそう思ってきていたようで、共に言葉の壁に悩みつつ、助け合うことができたと思います。住居の広さや設備はとてもよく、専用ジムやプールもあり驚きました。
      3.環境など
      サンディエゴは、本当に気候がいいです。海も近くにあり、町並みも素敵だと思います。食事は、近くにスーパーがあったので非常に助かりました。

      これから、留学する人は、不安もあると思いますが、素晴らしい経験ができることを願っています。
