Successful participants of this semester’s Gogaku-kyoka course received completion certificates from Prof. Yasunobu, Director of the Center for International Affairs, on Tuesday, 30th January 2018.

The Gogakukyoka course is a supplemental language skill development course offered every semester at the Center for International Affairs with the objective of improving practical language skills of students before they participate in overseas study programs or maintaining their language skills after attending overseas programs. This semester, three English classes (advanced level, intermediate level and Pre-intermediate level) and two Chinese classes (elementary level and intermediate level) were offered twice a week from 23rd October to 19th January. These classes were taught by native language instructors and students were evaluated based on their attendance, class activity and performance on mid-term and final exams. 35 students who got passing marks were awarded certificates.

After awarding the certificates, Prof. Yasunobu praised the awardees for making time out of their busy schedules to participate in this non-credit supplemental language course and successfully complete it and advised them to keep on improving their language skills by attending higher level classes in the next semester and beyond.  The intermidiate level English course instructor, Mr. Ivan Timbrell, also attended the certificate award ceremony and offered his congratulations to the awardees and encouraged them to continue studying English in the next semester as well.

Most of the students who received completion certificates are taking part in one of the Global Gateway Programs of Tottori University this spring, including the Overseas Practical Education Program in Uganda and language training programs in Taiwan, Australia, Malaysia and USA.
