What Japanese University Students
Think About Scotland

I'm often asked by family & friends what's on the mind of my Japanese university students & how they feel about various topics.

Through 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. Then New Zealand & Brazil. This stop: Scotland

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. 

Enjoy !!
