1月29日に行われたベトナム大学生との交流はとても楽しい時間でした。何よりベトナム大学生がとてもフレンドリーで親しみやすく、すぐに打ち解けられたことがとても嬉しかったです。一緒に習字を書いた際に、多くのベトナム学生が文字の意味を私に尋ね、日本語の意味を理解した上で、一文字一文字丁寧に書いていたのがとても印象的でした。最後には、ベトナムの伝統衣装を着たベトナム学生が、ダンスを交えながらベトナムの歌を歌ってくれたり、たくさんのベトナムプレゼントをくれたりと本当に嬉しかったです。多くの学生から「本当にありがとう、 ベトナムに来たときは連絡してね。」、「また日本に絶対来たい。」と言ってくれたときは、このイベントに参加してよかったと心から思いました。(Yukari Sekiguchi 4th year undergraduate student)

My name is Pham Van Thanh and I am a second year master student at theUniveristy of Aizu. First of all, I would like to thank JICE for organizing such a great event. It was really a special occasion not only for me but also for all other Vietnamese students here. We had a chance to talk with many young, highly self-motivated students from all partsof Vietnam (Hanoi, Danang and Ho Chi Minh). I learned from them their proactivity and naturalness in making conversations that I am not very good at. Their impressions of Japan made me reminisce about my feelings when I came to Japan for the first time 4 years ago. As parts of the event, we were taught how to write calligraphy and make origami thatI have never tried before though I have been living in Japan for quitea long time. It was interesting and I knew that it is not easy to havea beautiful calligraphy or origami. I hope that we will have more activities like that in the near feature with students from other countries so that we will have more opportunities to explore other cultures.
