For International Students

About the Chat Room

The Chat room was established to provide students of Aoyama Gakuin with the opportunity to have cultural exchange, by communicating in foreign languages (English, Korean, Chinese, etc.)with international students enrolled at Aoyama Gakuin, called Chat Leaders.
Japanese Chat sessions for international students are also provided. For more details, please refer to “Japanese Chat Room”.

Chat Sessions

At the Chat Room, students can enjoy talking with “Chat Leaders” in various different languages.
In group sessions, one Chat Leader will host up to six Japanese students, and they can exchange thoughts and opinions to develop a deeper understanding of other cultures and countries.
In One to One sessions, one Chat Leader will sit with one Japanese student, and they would have time to have a deeper conversation.
In addition to learning about the cultures and customs of the Chat Leaders, Japanese students share Japanese culture with the international students.
