Keio foreign language school
Yukichi Fukuzawa,the founder of Keio university, once started to teach Dutch.
However he was disappointed that Dutch was not used in Yokohama where the harbor town was bustling with foreigners.
So he decided to teach English instead in his school.
He himself studied abroad in the United States(Brown Univercity) and desperately studied English.
Now as a prestigious university in Japan, Keio is producing a number of excellent managers,
engineers and politicians.
The school has 150 courses of 13 foreign languages. I entered an advanced level English course from this spring.
I have 14 classmates and every time we exchange our opinions in English after watching documentaries about the US.
I can learn not only English skills, but also the issues of American society.
