THIS SEMESTER I AM SO HAPPY THAT WE CAN COMMUNICATE WITH  STUDENTS FROM CONGO TO STUDY WITH YOU IN CLASS FOR  A FULL SEMESTER.  AS MANY OF YOU HAVE ALREADY REALIZED THAT BUILDING RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN AFRICAN COUNTRIES AND JAPAN IS ESSENTIAL FOR OUR FUTURE. WE LEARN A LOT FROM AFRICAN COUNTRIES. BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO START THE RELATIONSHIP IS, OF COURSE, MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING AS HUMAN BEINGS.
PLEASE COME AND JOIN US FOR BUILDING OUR PROMISING FUTURE!
STUDENTS WHO HAVE STRONG WILL TO JOIN THE PROJECT ARE MOST WELCOME: IT DOESN'T MATTER WHETHER YOU HAVE PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE OR KNOWLEDGE ON AFRICAN COUNTRIES.
SEE YOU SOON!
