Q: Graduated from secondary school to apply for enlistment, and then decided to study in Japan, your experiences are always more special?

Xu: Yes, I was naughty at that time and I didn't like studying. Because my grades are not idea, I failed getting into high school. Instead, I attended the secondary school. Being in the army is one of my dreams when I was a little kid and I just want to realize my dream. After two years, I chose to be one of the demobilized conscripts. Most of the comrades chose to work or start business. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to study in the International College, so I really appreciate it.


Q: Why do you choose the Sino-Japanese cooperative program of the International College?

Xu: I think the Xiamen University is a very good platform to go abroad and I'm interested in Japanese. In the two years of the International College, I took a lot of specialized courses including the Information Technology, Trade, Tourism, and Japanese Culture and so on. I feel quite good about it because it is much better than looking for an agency or participating in the language training class. In addition, I was able to study in the Xiamen University and experience college life which is like a dream come true.


Q: Have you done some researches about the Shizuoka Sangyo University?

Xu: Yes, I contacted with our college students who have already studied in the Shizuoka Sangyo University. They are very enthusiastic. I consult them a lot before going abroad and also read the school brochures. The overall is good, especially the school is located next to Mount Fuji and the transportation is very convenient.


Q: You get scholarship offered by the Japanese university, what advantages do you think you have?

Xu: I take the scholarship as a encouragement to me. I feel very happy that I can help parents save some tuition fees. My advantage is that I spent more time on study and feel interested in learning Japanese. Of course I can't do this without my mother's support. Here I'd like to say thank you to my mother and the cultivation of the college and the teachers. The teachers of the Sino-Japanese program are very responsible and they always solved our problems patiently. 

class.Q: Can you talk about attending the Shizuoka Kogyo examination?

Xu: I felt very nervous when I was noticed that Japanese teacher will come here for an interview. However, it is much easier when I find that the Japanese teachers are very nice after meeting. They asked me if I am worried about Japan's natural disasters and political issues as well as the Japanese culture. Overall, the interview was quite good.


Q: You will study in Japan very soon, what expectations and plans do you have?

Xu: I expect a lot before going to Japan. The diet, the lifestyle, the teachers and so on. I appreciate the seriousness of the Japanese and I also like Japan's clothing, some handmade items, as well as the architectures they imitate the Tang Dynasty’s. I will seize the opportunity to open my mind and broaden the horizons. My major involves sightseeing and tourism, and may be engaged in hospitality industry in the future.
