長谷川ゼミ5期生、7名が卒業しました(30 March 2013)

 長谷川先生、式から日が経ってしまいましたが卒業式の報告をいたします。3月24日、5期生のうち7名(高橋、加藤、橋本、平田、光達、近藤、野田)が卒業いたしました。卒業式当日は、4期生の大山さん、山崎さんが式に駆けつけてくださりました。 当日、国際政治学科では学位記が、菱田先生と萩谷先生から学生に渡されました。学位記を授与される際、大学4年間のこと、長谷川ゼミでの経験が走馬灯のごとく思い出されました。大きなセレモニーとはもっと形式的なものとこのときまで思っていましたが、直接経験すると、感慨深いものがあり、過去の思い出と、学位を授与された重みを感じました。また大山さんからは、「野田君をはじめ後輩のみんなが頑張ってきたからその学位記には重みがあるんだ」といった旨の言葉を頂きました。最後になりましたが、スイスからのゼミ生へのメッセージありがとうございました。春に、先生にお会い出来るのを楽しみにしております。(野田悠将)


Greeting from Cost Rica! (Kyoko Hirano)

Dear Professor Hasegawa (CC Professor Hoffmann),
 Happy New Year Hasegawa sensei! I hope you are keeping yourself warm in spite of hard winter in Japan this year. I safely got back to Costa Rica about a week ago and the class started as usual. When we talked at the alumni party in December, you said you met a young professor who is from Germany and is professor of the University for Peace. Immediately, I thought that was Julia Hoffmann. So I talked with Julia today on campus and she was surprised at such a miracle connection!And also she mentioned that UNU and UPeace should have more connection in future. […]

【留学生だより】 峰川頌子 トルーマン州立大学

10月の2週目に中間テストがありました。2つのみのテストでしたが、同日に行われること、そして普段の大量の宿題もあり、試験の勉強時間が満足にとれませんでした。けれどもテストの結果はどれも平均点以上を取ることができ、90%以上とれた教科もあったため、これからのやる気にもつながりました。10月31日にはInternational Idolという留学生が自国の文化や特技を披露するイベントにも参加し、着付けをして演歌を歌いました。時間がない中で本番に臨みましたが結果は3位に入賞しました。他の留学生のパフォーマンスも踊りから歌までバラエティ豊かでとてもいいイベントでした。


【留学生だより】 池川遥・長島啓輔 ボイシー州立大学

授業については、volleyballのクラスを履修しています。レベルはまちまちですが、経験者ということもあり楽しく授業を受けています。語学については、2カ月半を振り返りある程度の進歩が感じられます。それまでは、会話に入るタイミングなど難しく感じていた場面でも、今では自然に英語が出てくるようになりました。春学期に向けて授業の履修も始まりました。ここでは授業の定員数が決まっているためオーバーになると履修できないという欠点もありますが、留学生は比較的早くから履修を開始することができます。また最近はボストンキャリアフォーラムの準備を行っており、留学と就職活動を同時進行で進めています。忙しく大変だが、できる限り頑張っていきたいと思います。 私はESL Writingという英語の授業を履修していますが、これは文法事項やエッセイの構成などを学ぶ授業です。提出したエッセイは全て教授が読み、細部まで丁寧に指摘してくれますのでお勧めの授業です。渡米当初に比べ、苦手としていたリスニング力がアップしたと思います。最近はスピーキングを上達させるように心がけ、日々面白いと思った表現をメモして覚えたり、初めて聞いた表現は友人に聞いたりと積極的に勉強してバラエティーに富んだ表現ができるように意識しています。2カ月が経ち、気の合う友人もできました。誕生日パーティーを開いてくれたり、人生初のハロウィンも体験するなど、留学生活を楽しんでいます。
