Akie (20s / Japan)


Length of stay at CPC

1 year and a half

Why did you choose to come to Hawaii?

I love Hawaii. I was impressed by how kind local people were the first time I came here. I found it refreshing.

How has your English improved up to this point compared to a year ago?

I can understand more of what people say than before I came to Hawaii. I also wasn't good at reading but I make less mistakes than before.

What was the hardest thing about living in Hawaii for a year as an international student? What was the best thing?

I felt it was hard to get a checkup from a doctor. I had a problem with my ear for 3 months after I came here (now I'm much better).

What are some good things about CPC?

All the teachers are very nice! They help us until we understand.

What do you hope to do after you graduate from CPC?

I'd like to volunteer for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. I hope to help tourists so they can enjoy their trip in Japan.
