4 months of studying in Mikasano can be said as my happiest time so far now... I know someone will say that I'm lying but it's true...
15 December 2009 is when we enter the first class. I met some old faces and some new facesthere, old faces are my old school mates and new faces are my future friends.
During the first month and a half, I met my first teacher. She is a dedicated teacher. And sure, she must be very patient because she can endure with us. At first, I can hardly pronounce, looking at the word who clearly know me but I do not know it. Now I can finally at least read a sentence without much effort. Then finally, at the end of January, we have a new teacher add in. This new teacher speaks so fast that I can hardly interpret what she said. However, time flies and I can now pick at least some pace of hers. She was famous for her hand gesture and body language that will sure give you a day with something to smile on. The 4 months program, I personally think it's a must to do if one is going to future study to Japan. If I never went to this program, I will never know there is so much thing one can learn in Japanese. I can't imagine if one went to Japan with zero or 10 percent of knowledge, it's better to knock yourself to a wall.
During the 4 months, I can't really hang on without my classmates, they are nice and also fun to hang around with. During the class, we create a lot of jokes. It's not other people will get it. Every time we hang around, I just felt that I'm growing too. We organized some activities during the class, however only one of them is a success but I will surely kept it as a memory.
For anyone that have a dream like me to future their study to Japan, I know what it feels when every time you tell a people this decision, people will think that you are just taking a deathly risk to only apply the scholarship once you reach there. Or even, some just think it's stupid to learn a whole new language instead of just stick with what they think they are good with. However, like Teacher in Mikasano said, "there are no stupid or poor people in the world but only lazy people.". It's your life, you must decide it yourself instead of letting others to control your life. Life is full of risk, you will never have something without its own risk. If it's your dream, why don't just take the risk. Believe in yourself that you can do it is all I believe in. So, take on your dream and believe in it.
