Asia for me
"Asia is a gigantic theater where immensely diverse policy issues engage, in a complex manner, billions of people and where one is both an actor and an audience at the same time".

Message for Learners

Asia for me: "There are great demands for distance education in Asia, and we Japanese people have more opportunities for contacting and knowing each other among Asian countries. Not only academic matter but cultural exchange gives us much fun and promising future".
Message for Learners: "This course gives us much more than ordinary course, English conversation is a little a bit tough, though".
