From early October to late November, 40 students in the 1st year undergraduate students participated in an online exchange with 40 students studying Japanese language at the University of New South Wales (UNWS). UNSW is a national university in Sydney, Australia.
In this project, two students from Ibaraki University and two students from UNSW formed a group and interacted once a week. Some groups not only discussed their hobbies and talents, but also enjoyed watching their favorite animations and movies together, but also explained each other's eating habits while having a meal together.
We have received comments from Ibaraki University students, such as " there is a discovery every time," "I thought that I was not good at English, but I was confident that I could understand if I spoke, and that I could understand the other person's conversation," and "the most regrettable thing is that I can't convey everything I want to say in the exchange. But, I feel that I want to convey this more strongly, so it is beneficial for me." While participants enjoyed the exchange it self, this opportunity provided a good motivation for their future English studies.
