英語の庭

英語で会話する機会がなかなか無い。周りの留学生は日本語が上手で、英語で話していてもいつの間にか日本語になっている。研究のことは英語で話せるけど、雑談が苦手。将来留学したい国からの留学生と知り合いたい。英会話力を維持したい。SELで学んだ表現を実際にどんどん使いたい。

空いた時間に、東大留学生会話パートナーと英語でおしゃべりしませんか?

Hello, I am Gunjan from India, a Doctoral student in the Department of Electrical Engineering. One of my favorite things to do in Tokyo is cycling next to the riversides. The picture above is from the beautiful Kuramae district near the Sumida-gawa river. Last semester my aim was to follow the Arakawa River to the Tokyo Bay area, I accomplished that.

These are all my ways to understand and depict the world. Like Wittgenstein said, the best tool to draw the limit of the world is our language.

Justin

Home: America

Yo! I’m Justin from California and currently I’m a master’s student in the Astronautics and Aeronautics department. I arrived in Tokyo this April and can’t wait to see all the city has to offer. I love talking about space and science fiction. I’m also a big fan of nature, like in this picture where I am hiking along the Cliffs of Dover in England, where my sister studies.

Towen

Home: Australia

Language: English, Cantonese, Japanese (learning!), Korean

Interests: Breakdancing, snowboarding, learning languages, sustainability & eating

Hello! I am Towen from Melbourne, Australia. The picture above was taken in Shiga Kogen in Nagano when I was working part time whilst snowboarding almost everyday. It was one of the best times of my life! I graduated with a Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering (Hons.) and Bachelor of Commerce from Monash University. Currently, I am a masters student in the Department of Civil Engineering researching wind energy. Outside of studying, you will usually find me in a dance studio practising breakdancing or if it is winter snowboarding.

I spent a year studying and working in South Korea and now I am living in Tokyo so I can understand the struggle of learning a foreign language. However, I think we can have a lot of fun and laughs chatting together with no pressure. Please feel free to book a session with me! :)

I love to try different restaurants to find delicious food too! But I cannot eat raw meet. I am trying to learn and improve my Japanese speaking skills, so I really understand how hard it can be to talk freely in a new language.

Please don’t worry and feel free to talk with me! Let's learn from each other together!
