ICC’s highly popular “Japan-China-Korea: Speak Your Mind Camp” is back! And this time we’ll be bringing together students in an online event!
Out of some 8,000 international students at Waseda, about 50 percent are from China and Korea. The three countries have close diplomatic relations and intertwined histories from ancient times. In recent years young people in these nations have lively exchanges centered on pop-culture.
“Close by but far away,” “I know a little but don’t really understand them….” If that rings true with you, this is a great chance to get to know each other and make friends online.
ICC student staff are preparing fun activities like talking about typical national stereotypes and a trivia quiz about the countries.
Soon we’ll be sliding into Spring holidays and a new semester. Let’s meet and share with our neighbors in real time, and make new friends for the new school year coming up!
Don’t miss this chance! We’re waiting for you!
