When I came to Japan for the first time, I felt uneasy, but teachers and faculty are very kind and gave me useful advise. It was very interesting to see a Japanese TV program in the lessons. It was a commedy and I was vey glad to understand the meaning after explanation from the teacher. As I have many conversation excersise in other lessons, gradually I became to speak.
