Obies Using Languages: Weelic Chong, ’15

Weelic Chong is a member of the Class of 2015 and is currently pursuing a major in Neuroscience. He spent his winter term at Nagoya University in Nagoya, Japan, and then the spring of 2014 studying abroad at Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan.

Last Winter Term, I conducted research at Nagoya University, and followed that with a  semester at Waseda University in Tokyo under the GLCA-affiliated Japan Study Program. It was a life-changing experience. I started with only two semesters of Japanese, and everyday is a new day to elicit more guffaws from people, but that was the way I learned. Above all, have fun when studying abroad, and cultivate confidence and thought in equal measure. (aka speaking and reading practice. ) Speaking of a reading practice, I challenge you to read the passage below and spot the errors. Enjoy!


冬学期に名古屋大学で研究室で働きながら、日本語の基本を勉強しました。その後、GLCA JAPAN STUDYというプログラムのおかげで、早稲田大学で日本語の勉強が続きました。
