So I'm studying some languages and countries. That is really fun. I should get more experience. I want to try my hand at a lot of different things in this four years. I have to continue to study harder and come to be able to speak English. The experience that I gained here will probably help me greatly in my future jobs. I'll do my best!!

I don't work, but I'm university student. I don't have a lot of experiences and good skills. Therefore, I want to make efforts to have good skills and experiences. First, in order to do them, I study foreign languages hard. For instance, I like to study English, but I'm not good at speaking English. I think speaking English is a good skill. So, these days I memorize English grammar or words. I can not speak English fluency yet, but I try to keep practicing it. Secondly, I hope to have experiences by meeting a kind of people. there are a lot of people in university. And people have different ideas. So, I absorb ideas from others, I want to learn good knowledge.

Since I am a student now, I have no professional experience or skills unless I get a job. However, I have had various experiences in my life. I have also been involved in activities such as swimming, learning English and calligraphy, participating in club activities, traveling to various places, participating in competitions and events. I would like to have various experiences from now on until I go out and work in society. And if possible, I would like to take an examination such as Eiken or TOEIC and obtain a qualification. I will think about various things from now on in order to become a necessary human resource in society.

I'm a university student, so I'm not working now. I belong to a foreign language department at university. I'm studying Chinese as a second foreign language as well as English. I just started studying Chinese and can only understand the basics. It's difficult to study Chinese, but it's very interesting. So when I get to work in the future, I want to get a job where I can make use of the foreign language I studied. I want to get a lot of knowledge at university and play an active role in work.
