I studied for a year in Ashland University (ACCESS). The reason I chose to study abroad is because I was fairly stressed about my English level and then I thought studying abroad and meeting English natives would make me overcome my stress. A year of studying in ACCESS was enough for me. The course consists of 4 levels and students are from all over the world. The levels are from beginner class to advanced class. In beginner class, it starts off with Basic English grammar and speaking. As students move up to next level, the class deals with more sophisticated English or preparation of TOEFL. The reason I recommend ACCESS is that not only the solid structure and aim in the class, but also other activities, such as travelling, after school activities and sight-seeing. Ohio is not very fancy compare to other cosmopolitan cities, but it makes a suitable residence. In winter, I can go skiing, which I love. Also I was able to feel what it likes to be in American home. I lived in dormitory and home-stay. I recommend home-stay. Not only you meet a good family but also experience American culture and home. Thus, you get to understand more of them. I do like busy cities like New York but Ohio was brilliant too.

저는 1년동안 Ashland University (ACCESS)에서 공부하고 왔어요. 영어에 대한 스트레스가 너무 크고 아무리 공부해도 늘지 않는 것 같아서 어학연수를 1년 다녀오기로 결정했어요. ACCESS에서 저의 1년은 굉장히 길었어요. 1년 집중 영어프로그램은 4단계 레벨로 구성되어있고, 영어에 익숙하지 않은 외국인 학생들이 주로 듣게되요. 초급 레벨부터 상급레벨까지 꾸준하게 배우게 되는데 초급레벨에서는 기본적인 영어 문법이나 대화 기술 등을 배우고 레벨이 올라갈수록 조금더 심도 있는 영어, 대학이나 대학원에서 쓰이는 영어나 토플 같은 자격증을 대비하는 수업도 듣게되요. 제가 ACCESS에서 가장 좋았던 점은 탄탄한 영어수업도 좋지만 수업외의 활동이 정말 재밌었어요. 수업이 끝나면 동아리활동을 하고, 외국인 친구들과 놀러다니고, 관광도하면서 굉장히 많이 친해졌어요. 오하이오는 다른 도시들에 비해서 화려하지는 않지만 굉장히 살기좋고 예쁜 곳이에요. 겨울에는 스키나 스노우보드를 타기도하고, 굉장히 크고 넓은 도시에요. 정말 미국 사람들의 생활을 제대로 느낄 수 있었던 것같아요. 저는 홈스테이도 해보고 기숙사에서도 지내봤는데 홈스테이가 정말 좋았어요. 좋은 가족들을 만나서이기도 하지만 미국인들의 생활습관이나 사고방식을 피부로 느껴보면서 외국인을 이해하는 마음을 갖게 된 것 같아요. 뉴욕처럼 바쁘고 사람많은 대도시도 좋지만 저는 오하이오 어학연수 강추해요.

私は1年間Ashland University(ACCESS)で勉強しました。英語ストレスもいっぱいですし、いくら勉強しても実力が上がろうともしないので語学留学に行こうと決めました。ACCESSでの私の1年はすごく長かったです。1年集中英語プログラムは4段階のレベルで構成されてありますし、英語になれていない外国人の学生が周に受けます。初級レベルから高級レベルまで学ぶことになりますが初級レベルでは基本的な英語文法や会話の記述を勉強して、レベルが上がるほどもっと深い英語、大学や大学院で使われる英語やトーフルを準備する授業をうけることになります。私がACCESSで一番気に入ったのは英語の授業もそうですが、授業以外の活動もすごく楽しかったです。授業が終わると、部活に行って、外国人のともと遊んだり、観光したりしながらすごく親しくなりました。オハイオはほかの都市に比べてはあんまり派手な都市ではありませんが、すごくきれいな都市です。冬はスキーやスノーボードを楽しんだり、すごく大きい都市なんです。私はホームステーもしたり、ドミーでもくらしましたが、ホームステーがよかったです。うちが良い家族に会ったためでもありますが、アメリカ人の生活習慣や考え方も実際に感じながら外国人を理解する態度をもつことになったそうです。ニューヨークのような派手な大都市もいいですけどうちはオハイオがいいと思います。

조건부 입학 프로그램으로 영어 공부 먼저 하고 바로 애쉴랜드 대학에 입학했습니다. 대학 진학 막막했는데 조건부 입학 가능하니까 진짜 마음 편하게 공부했고, 입학 하기 전에 집중 영어 코스 들으면서 대학 수업도 들을 수 있기 때문에 관심 있는 수업 기웃기웃 하곤 했습니다. 덕분에 대학 적응이 빠르게 됐구요. 애쉴랜드 대학교 진학에 관심있는 분들한텐 정말 최적입니다.


--------------------
条件付き入学プログラムによって英語の勉強、まずエスィルランド大学に入学しました。大学進学に途方に暮れていたのですが条件付入学可能だから本当の気楽勉強し、入学する前に集中英語コース聞きながら大学の授業も聞くことができるので、興味のある授業をしきりに勉強ていました。おかげで大学適応がすぐになったんです。エスィルランド大学進学に興味のある方に本当に最適です。

--------------------

透過條件式入學,可以先修習完英語課程後直接進入艾許蘭大學就讀。原本對於進入大學感到一片茫然的我,因為有條件式入學的關係,所以能夠心情定下來並專注於學習,在入學之前埋首於英語課程中,同時也可以旁聽大學課程,所以自己有興趣的課程也可以聽聽看。也因此很快地適應了大學的生活。對於希望在艾許蘭大學就讀的學生,這裡是最理想的選擇。

あゆむ

私は出来るだけ日本人の少ない環境が良いという思いから、このアシュランド大学を選びました。

しかし留学初期は本当に大変なことが多くて、英語力が足りないために、助けて欲しい時に助けてくれる人がまわりにおらず、
苦しい思いをしたことが一度や二度ではありませんでした。
その時は本当に、学校選びを間違ったかなと思いましたし、ここに来た事を少し後悔しました。

でもあきらめずに一生懸命勉強しているうちに、まだまだではありますがコミュニケーションにも自信がついてきて、
徐々に自分のいいたいことも言えるようになって来ました。
その時くらいから段々留学生活が楽しく感じられるようになってきたと思います。

留学中クラスにはいつも恵まれて、他の国の子達とも仲良くなれましたし、
留学前まではある国に対する先入観のようなものがありましたが、実際留学していろんな国の子達と仲良くなると、
その先入観がいかにくだらないものだったかということに気づきました。
そういった意味でも今回の留学で、自分自身の物の見方が大きく変わったと思います。

また、学校の中には一般の方も利用出来る施設があるのですが、そこで街の人たちと会話する機会もたくさんありました。
アシュランドは比較的小さな街で、住民の人たちもどこかフレンドリーで温かい雰囲気があります。
もし留学に来た際は、ぜひ利用することをお勧めします。会話力のアップに繋がります。

海外留学は、初めはだれでも辛いことが多いと思います。
でも自分次第でいくらでも楽しくなります。
私は人生で忘れられない貴重な経験が出来ました。ありがとうございます。
