What Japanese University Students
Think About Australia
I'm often asked by family & friends
what's on the mind of my Japanese university students & how
they feel about various topics.
this online forum, my students will now have a voice to express their
views about different countries and/or share their overseas travels
with the online community.
First stop was America.
This stop: Australia
More to follow in the weeks and months ahead, as
we travel around the world country by country, in accordance with the
list at the bottom of the page !
If you are a Japanese university student, feel
free to throw in your 2 cents worth and participate in the discussion.
It'd be a pleasure to hear your input. And by all means, feel free to
comment on and rate the other students' comments as well.
