Let me explain the reason why I have taken this class. Before explaining it, I would like to introduce myself to 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, so I am taking a lot of classes for a teacher’s license.
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 on a school excursion when I was a high school student. This was the first time for me to talk with people in foreign countries. I noticed that English which I studied in junior high school and high school was 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. Without the credit of the course, I will not be able to participate in practice teaching.
I also would like to acquire more knowledge of teaching English as a second language. When I went to Queen’s university in Canada to study English from last April to last August, I felt that academic writing is the most difficult in studying English. It was too short to learn how to write in English, so I want to improve my skills in academic writing.
In short, these are the three reasons for me to take this class.
