Let me explain the reason why I have taken this class. Before explaining it, I would like to introduce myself for you. I am in my third year at Kwansei Gakuin University, and I specialize in the law. I belong to a nonprofit organization called “Teach For Japan , and I am interested in education now. I want to be an English teacher in the future for my profession, so I am taking a lot of classes for a teacher’s certificate.
Simply stated , the very first reason is that I would like to improve my English. I have been to Singapore and Malaysia for one week as a school excursion when I was a high school student. This was the first time to talk with people in foreign countries. I noticed that English which I studied in junior high school and high school is very useful in foreign countries. Upon coming back to Japan , I have wanted to learn English more and more.
This class is a required subject for a teacher’s license. This is the second reason why I have taken this class. If I can not take this credit by the end of the year, I won’t be able to participate in practice teaching.
I want to acquire the knowledge to teach English as a second language also. For it , I went to Queen’s university in Canada to study English from the last April to the last August, and I felt that academic writing is the most difficult in studying English there. It is too short to learn how to write in English, so I want to improve my skills in academic writing.
In short, these are three reasons for me to take this class.
