周辺環境
Q:学校の周辺環境について教えて下さい!


A:はい。
学校があるヒューストンは、アメリカ第4の都市で、NASA宇宙センターがあることでも有名です。
エネルギー産業の中心地でもあり、活気があり近代的なビルも建ち並んでいます。
また、南部に位置するため、1年中温暖な気候で、夏は湿気も多く暑いですが、冬はあまり寒くならないので過ごしやすい環境です。

ヒューストンのダウンタウンまでバスで約60分、車で約30分です。
クリアレイクはヒューストンのベイエリアで、すぐ近くにNASAスペースセンターもあるので、
宇宙関連の分野に興味のある学生は非常に面白い場所ではないかと思います。
また、ビーチが広がるガルベストン島にも近いので、ヒューストンのダウンタウンを楽しみながら、ベイサイドの雰囲気も味わえる環境です。

今年1月的時候去參加聖湯瑪斯大學休斯頓分校,通用英語課程的課程,

課程內容將聽、說、讀、寫課程與特定技巧加強課程相結合,為每一位學生提供獨一無二的英語學習課程。 
因為有四種技能兼具的情況下,讓我的英語能力更快速的成長。
上課時間為,上午的四堂課以使用英語進行有效溝通所需的聽、說、讀、寫技巧為重點,
下午的兩堂技巧加強課旨在讓您在一種自然的暢談氛圍中就您個人感興趣的主題進行對話,在對話中練習運用所學到的英語技巧,
在課程進行的過程中,老師也會一直關心學生的學習狀況,進行學生的個人輔導,
因此在老師細心的教導之下,我的英文突飛猛進,真的非常推薦大家來聖湯瑪斯大學休斯頓分校學習語言。

えいみ

大学2年の夏休みを使ってヒューストン校に短期で留学しました。

ヒューストン校にした理由は、近くにNASAがあったからです。
小さい頃から宇宙が好きで趣味で本もよく読んでいたので、NASAが近いヒューストン校に決めました。

今回の留学は、留学兼観光だったのでセミインテンシブコースにしました。
授業は、スピーキング、リスニング、発音、語彙、読解、ライティングといった英語の総合的なスキルを重点的に
学べるので短期の留学でもだいぶレベルアップできたなと思います。
授業は午前中だけなので、午後はクラスメイトとご飯行ったり、週末は、旅行気分で思いっきり観光しました。
