Your checklist

Have you got everything you need?

[ ✔ ] a passport photo

[ ✔ ] a copy of my passport or other photo ID

[ ✔ ] proof of address

Your card will be issued within 15 days and sent to the address provided.


1. It's a good idea to write in capital letters so it’s easy to read, except for your email address and signature.

2. For dates, in the UK we usually write them DD/MM/YYYY (day-month-year). So, for 1 September 2018 you write 01/09/2018. In the United States it is MM/DD/YYYY so you write 09/01/2018.

3. If you don't understand every word on the form, don't panic. You can probably guess what information you need to write. Ask someone for help if you need to.

My last form was probably filled up my online shopping membership. Actually I was not interested in it before. But I filled up it because I couldn't go shopping in Coronavirus for a long time. I registered for multiple online shopping on that day. And I am looking for clothes, accessories and cosmetics almost everyday. I haven't bought anything yet but It is really fun to see and feel. Until now, I was very afraid of leaking personal information, so I tried not to write it as much as possible. But this thinking seems old!! When I asked my friends, most of them used it frequently and enjoyed it. It seems that other countries are becoming more cashless than Japan. I think there are still many people who thinking like me. They will be reassured if there are decrease to online frauds and crimes. Are there too few online crimes in your country? I hope that measures will be further developed. Of course, we shold manage own personal information well.

I filled a school assignment two days ago. That was the question of how to teach Japanese to Japanese learners (foreigners). It was very difficult and very difficult. Due to the influence of corona, my university became an online class during the spring semester. I honestly hate online classes. This is because the line condition becomes bad and many troubles occur. There are other problems such as having a lot of homework. Also, in one class, there is an opportunity for group work and presentations. At that time, use the zoom function to talk. If I go to university as usual, I can talk with everyone on the spot. However, zoom has a time lag. I think that I haven't been able to have a good conversation because of such internet troubles.When a problem peculiar to the Internet occurs in this way, I lose my motivation and do not want to do the assignment . In addition, the stress of not being able to meet your friends accumulates and makes I more motivated. I am motivated by having friends in the same space and working hard together. Every day I hope the corona will settle down and the university will begin.

The last form I filled in was personal information form submitted for a university. it's interesting to know I fill three similar forms for three different part of the university, that's why I think this can be done once by an internal network of the university.
