China Beckons Once More

Last week my colleagues and I visited Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology to recruit sophomore students who want to enroll in third-year courses at Niigata University of Management.

According to its website, Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology, which was founded in 1960, was designated in 1978 as one of the key institutions of higher learning in China. With a scientific research center for post-doctoral students, the university enjoys a complete educational system.

While there, we met several students fluent in speaking Japanese. Some of them claimed to have learned Japanese from watching popular Japanese animation programs and “trendy” TV dramas.
