View Full Version : Are you planning to study abroad?

Once you get to high school or college, you get the opportunity to study abroad in another country. Let me tell you this...always plan 2 months in ahead because you'll need a BUNCH of stuff to turn in.

*Zappy is way behind on applications*

But, if all goes well, Zappy's heading to Tsukuba, Japan (city a little east of Tokyo) next year for an academic year. If I can't get it in be the deadline, Zappy's going for 1/2 year to Tsuru, Japan which is north east of Kyoto.

But other than Japan, there are also many other countries to study in such as Austrailia (whoot, platypus!), China, England, Brazil ect;

Which country do you wish to study abroad in? And what do you hope to learn and accomplish there?

Not sure about that... it depends of my grades =P. But if I was asked to choose I'd probably go to England.

I definately intend to study in Japan, preferably in either Hiroshima or Takayama. When I went this summer, those where my favorite places, I'd love to return to them. I know I intend to work there for at least two years as well, teaching.

Haha... I'm in Asia... it's a really hard decision actually.
Right now, my school specializes in Math and Science. We have a direct transfer thingy to a French school after we finish College. But I don't want to have to learn a new language >.<
So if I continue with math and science, I'll probably continue studies in USA.
However, if I want to specialize in music (since I'm already doing too much of it, and I want to work in a Chinese Orchestra in the future), I'll be going to China.

...alternatively, I can just continue to study in Singapore.

I'll be moving to the UK in about a year or so, once I get my work visa and apprenticship all cleared up. Since I don't really know the country that well, I'm saving for a back up fun just in case it dosn't work out.

After that I would like to move to Japan,Yokohama,Tokyo, Ishinomori, are three greats cites that I've allways wanted to see. I'm not so well with that language, and I suppose I would have to learn the Osaka dialect since it is the one language used in the media the most. So with manga I do have to learn at least the two forms of Japanese, basic understanding of the language and two, the Osaka dialect. I'm not sure of the writing though, I know Kanji is popular and widely used so I might just go with that.

SO I'm hoping to be out of the US by the time I turn 17, which dosn't seem so far away thinking about it now...and of course I'll stay posting here as long as the site is up,XP.

I might like to move to the US to study. I've been looking at the med schools in my spare time (I do have some form of life outside of PC... not much though), and most of them seem good. But, it isn't in the poll... so apart from that, I'd like to study in Japan as well. It seems such a lovely place to live and work in, and Tokyo just look amazing ^_^

I will not study abroad, mainly because of my age. I was not allowed to go on student exchange in high school because I was too young. Legally, in Australia, I am still too young to move out of home; I'm not going overseas to study! XD

For collage, right? Well... I'm planning to go to a UC here in California, USA... and I may go back to taiwan to study, or maybe somewhere in Europe... =]
