Work Experience Diary by Alex Syriopoulos

一週間、大和日英基金に働いた 大和日英基金で私は手伝うために、色々な課題をすることができました。新年度へ準備するために、大学にたくさん手紙を送りました。大和日英基金はチャリティなので、大学は大和の生活についてを知りません。だから、このお手紙は大学に基金の目的を伝えます。そして、日本協会は大和の建物の三階を使う予定なので片付けなければなりませんでした。ぜひ、今後、もっとロンドンの行事に参加しようと思います。私の日本の学力は前よりとても良いです。その上に、カロラインと美術館や博物館に行きました。日本について知識を習得したと思います。残念ながら、大学で日本語を習び続けるので、奨学金に申し込まめないけど、学士号を卒業した後に、申し込むかもしれません!全体的に、私は大和日英基金に働くことが好きでした。また帰ると思います!

My week of work experience at the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation (2-6 July) by Rosanna Lee, a St Dunstan’s College student

I wrote a leaflet called ‘Tips for Learning Japanese’. I looked up some Japan-related art exhibitions and was told that we (me and a member of staff—I think Ali or Susan) will visit one later in the week.
