      CSU, East Bay is an Excellent Program
      When I was at the school, I realized that some students like having others from their home country there because it makes them feel more comfortable. Others want to be around only those from other countries. In any case, the nationality mix of the school changes depending on the time of year, so don't worry so much about that. CSU, East Bay is an excellent program with lots of good teachers.

      今、私はアメリカでの生活を続けていますがCalifornia State University East Bay は学校周辺の気候、雰囲気等がよく、過ごしやすい環境でした。学校が広いので迷うこともしばしば。日本人が多いので安心ですが、いつも日本人といると英語は全く上達しません。英語の上達が目的なら自ら積極的に他国の人と話しましょう。それと留学は決して楽ではありません。私の友人の多くが途中であきらめて日本に帰りました。しかし一人で異国の地で生活をするという体験は必ず自分を大きく成長させてくれると思います。
