Hi, I’m Haruka.
In his lecture, we learned the importance of English in society today, and what we need to do now as women. We also got some tips on how to learn English successfully. Especially, when he talked about the importance of English in Japanese corporations, he quoted a certain CEO’s words; “In an English speaking environment we cannot afford to pay employees who are not able to explain in English ideas and information they may have.” It was very shocking to me because even if I have a clear vision of my future, I realized it’s like a castle in the air until others recognize my ability.
Professor Matsumoto told us, “Keep on studying English really hard for at least three months. Then, you’ll realize you’ll have made a lot of progress.” I will keep these words in mind and make more efforts from now on. Thank you again, Professor Matsumoto.
