Richard Harris（リチャード ハリス）
Richard Harris was born in London, U.K., but has lived in Japan for 38 years. He loves reading, but also hiking and camping in the mountains, usually with his wife and cat!
The general focus of the seminar will be on international and intercultural themes, but as much as possible all members of the seminar take responsibility for every aspect -- planning, content, style, and atmosphere.
In the past, the first year has focused on getting to know each other and working together in small groups to prepare presentations in English on topics chosen by the group.
In the second year, members decide what they are personally most interested in, and prepare individual presentations on these themes. These individual topics then become the basis for graduation theses, which are completed during the third year.
Students will be selected for their English ability (at least TOEIC 400+), and on their general suitability, demonstrated in an interview.
All explanations and interviews will be conducted IN ENGLISH.
In many cases character, enthusiasm, and curiosity will be as important as English ability.
This seminar is an opportunity to practise and develop English skills, but it is NOT a conversation class.
Be prepared to explore, present, and discuss topics in English and, above all, be curious about the world!
