Student Interview with Taskiran Barkin

Taskiran Barkin

From Turkey
Beginner III-1 / Nagano Campus

Why did you decide to study in Japan?
I like Japan's history and culture and, because I wanted to see with my own eyes, I decided to come.
Why did you choose ISI?
A very important friend from Turkey told me: "ISI is the best Japanese language school". I chose Nagano Campus, instead of any of the Tokyo campuses (a famous big city overseas) because I wanted to live the local culture rather than the big city life in Japan.
What do you think was the best thing of enrolling in ISI?
Everyone is friendly at school and the teachers teach us useful things. I've been able to make friends with Japanese students who attend the vocational school and it is a lot of fun.
What is your future dream?
I want to work in the United Nations.
What would you tell to those who want to study in ISI?
Honestly speaking, there are not that many people who can speak English in Ueda so I think it is better to study some Japanese in your own country and then come here. I'm sure that you will have the chance to use your Japanese from the beginning and that will make you stronger.
