【国際交流】Eagle's Flight Studio documentary interview at NWU

2018年10月10日 (水曜日) 09:30 | 投稿者:【nwuadmin

 On September 28th 2018, Mr. Daniel Kennedy, producer and director of Eagle’s Flight Studio visited Nagasaki Wesleyan University as part of his documentary tour of Japan. Mr. Kennedy, also an ordained Methodist minister of Wesleyan, conducted interviews with atomic bomb survivor and Chinzei alumni Mr. Tsugiya Nishi, the President of the Chinzei Academy Mr. Hideo Kuribayashi, as well as NWU Department of Foreign Languages instructor Mr. Lee Flake. Mr. Nishi, having been born in March of 1931, witnessed the atomic bombing of Nagasaki as a Chinzei Junior High School. Mr. Nishi shared about his life before and after the bombing as well as his motivation to start life again after the tremendous loss he experienced. Mr. Kuribayashi explained about the vision Dr. Long had when he began the Chinzei Academy in Nagasaki and how Methodist clergyman Dr. Chiba endeavored to rebuild the academy in Isahaya city after the academy, only 500 meters from the hypocenter, was destroyed in the bombing of Nagasaki. Mr. Kuribayashi further explained the correlation of NWU and the history of the Chinzei Academy and the human spirit and motivation needed for rebuilding as well as the future vision of NWU. Mr. Flake explained the reason why Nagasaki was important for the history of Japan by reiterating the history of Dejima during Japan’s period of isolation. Mr. Flake explained how after the bombing of Hiroshima on August 6th 1945, Nagasaki was selected as an alternative target after the pilots were blinded by smoke over Kokura due to the bombing of the Yahata Steelworks two days earlier. The Ohashi Arms Factory and shipbuilding through Mitsubishi Steelworks made Nagasaki a military target, but it was not the original target on August 9th. When the atomic bomb was dropped over Nagasaki, the city was caught off guard as the air raid sirens ended and warnings were lifted when the atomic bomb was detonated at 11:02 am on August 9th 1945. Mr. Flake shared the story of Sadako Sasaki and how folding paper cranes in commemoration of the bombing is a tradition honored throughout Japan. Mr. Kennedy and his crew toured the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Memorial Museum on September 29th before leaving to Kyoto on the next step of their documentary tour. We would like to thank Mr. Kennedy and his talented staff for their interest in the history of NWU and the Chinzei Academy and hope that they had many good memories of their time in Nagasaki. Please visit NWU again soon!

【交換留学】 Miho Harisaki ‐ NWU exchange student at the University of Baguio

2018年10月09日 (火曜日) 17:52 | 投稿者:【nwuadmin

Language Challenge


Miho Harisaki, NWU Exchange Student at the University of Baguio


It’s been a month since I came to the Philippines. The month went more quickly than the first week. I have gradually adapted myself to my daily life. Because of communication pressure, I strongly feel my level of English is improving. I am starting to think more realistically and see things more clearly.

There are about 18,000 students studying at the University of Baguio. I am enrolled in 6 subjects. Some of my classmates are Filipinos, Americans, Koreans, Ethiopians, Somalians, Yemenis and more. My class in Effective English has a test every meeting. The teacher explains then writes. This class is difficult for me because I cannot use a dictionary. I try hard to listen and understand what the teachers say. There are many technical terms in my classes such as language history and world literature. Sometimes my classmates explain some of my lessons in simple words so I can understand. Because of them I can overcome some challenges in understanding my classes. There are many assignments for me to do. I cannot keep up with the classes without preparation and review. My classes are MWF (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) or TTh (Tuesday and Thursday). That means I need to finish my assignments in two days.

I feel that my insufficient knowledge of English is a barrier for me. Students from another Japanese university who I live with give me the motivation to study more English. Because there are Japanese students at my homestay, I feel I speak more Japanese than English.

To practice and improve my English, I was kindly introduced by Professor Romero to his friend Tita Cita from New York City. The family does not speak any Japanese which is good for me. I sometimes stay on the weekends with them. She always tells me, “Don’t be shy.” She corrects my English and pronunciation. She strictly teaches me. I feel that I have more confidence now. Lola Miling, Cita’s mother, is 96 years old. I am happy because she remembers my face and name. She always smiles and holds my hand. I attended her 96th birthday party. I was surprised there were many guests. In Japan, it is normal to be celebrate with the family. But in the Philippines, friends, relatives and neighbors are invited to the birthday celebration. I ate a bowl of roasted pork called “lechon” during the birthday party. “Lechon” is a whole roasted pig. After the party, we pleasantly talked and sang. I think Filipinos value family ties.

I would like to learn not only English but also Filipino culture. In learning, I can communicate better and enjoy my life here.
