Outbound Student Report
- Here is a report from Evren Sasmazer:
- February was generally pretty good. It’s since gotten warmer, but February was super cold. Spring is looking to be pretty nice here though. I spent a lot of time getting to know the Nabeshimas in February, and we’re certainly closer than before (although maybe not as close as I was with the Matsuzaki’s). My Japanese has seen considerable improvement, however the Chinese kanji are still a struggle, but from what many of my teachers have told me it seems like they never really stop being a struggle, even for Japanese people. … In March I’ll be pretty busy. My parents and brother have made arrangements to visit next week, I’ll be getting ready to take the ACT in Tokyo in April, and I’m giving a presentation on Shintoism sometime soon.
