Intercultural Communication Center(ICC)Waseda University

【Sign Up Period : July 15th-July 24th】ICC Online Lounge -Intercultural communication from home! Say Hello to the world! -(July 31st)


Everyone, how is your time at home going? 
This semester, due to the effects of the Novel Coronavirus, there haven’t been many chances to meet with your fellow students face to face, right? 
This is also the first time since the foundation of the ICC that our lounge space has been closed for such a long time. 
Before this, many students would gather together in the ICC lounge to chat and make friends. Thinking about the changes, our staff have also been wishing for a quick return to that normal day. 
But especially in these situations, new ideas are important! 
So, this time, the ICC is trying to recreate a space with the easygoing interactions and opportunities to make new friends that you can find in our lounge on Zoom!

  • If you want to enjoy meeting new people. 
  • If you want to improve your language skills. 
  • If you are looking for more people to chat to. 
  • If you want to switch off from classes during your lunch break. 

 Then you need to come along to the ICC online lounge. 
Let’s experience a simulation of the ICC Lounge and enjoy chatting and meeting new people! 
It’s fine to be nervous when talking to someone you suddenly met for the first time. 
We will distribute topic sheets to help you introduce yourself and get your conversation started so please use them and enjoy yourself. If you ever have a problem, then there will be ICC staff on hand to support you so please don’t worry.  
The URL for the meeting room, participation rules and how to use the room will be sent to you by email using the address you use to apply.  


1.When you enter the room we will confirm your name and student ID number. 
2.We will then show you to a breakout room (there will be around 4 people per room.) 
3.When you enter the breakout room please introduce yourself and say why you came to use the lounge. After that, please feel free to talk about whatever you like. 
4.The ICC staff will notify you when the lounge is closing. 

Date & Time
