Report:Seoul Theological University / Doshisha University Intercultural Online Event 2021

Updated Mar. 22, 2022
On February 9, 2022, we held an intercultural online event with Seoul Theological University, Korea, by using Zoom.
Seoul Theological University is a private university in Bucheon, a satellite city of Seoul, Korea. We have been running a short-term program, “Japanese Language and Culture Program”, with Seoul Theological University every January since 2017, but unfortunately, this year, we had to suspend the program and could not welcome the students to Doshisha due to the impact of COVID-19. Therefore, this online event aimed to maintain international exchanges for students by using Zoom even in these circumstances.
16 Seoul Theological University students and 12 Doshisha students participated in this event. In the first part of the event: the presentation section, our five Doshisha students introduced Japanese culture, must-visit places in Kyoto, and their daily lives at the university from their own points of view by showing slideshows. Then, four Seoul Theological University students gave us presentations about Korean culture, popular places for sightseeing, and their daily lives in fluent Japanese. After all the students finished their presentations, the fastest finger first quiz challenges based on their presentations were conducted. The students seemed to be able to deepen their understanding of each other’s country through the quizzes.
In the latter part: the conversation section, the students were divided into some small groups, and they mainly talked about themselves, such as what they like, what they are interested in each other’s country, etc. Although some students seemed to be nervous at the beginning, they could enjoy each other’s company in a short time and exchanged their personal contact information to remain in touch personally even the event ended.
All of the Seoul Theological University students had high proficiency in Japanese, and they tried to deepen their interests and understanding of Japanese society and cultures by talking with the Doshisha students.
Hoping that COVID-19 will pass soon, so students can enjoy an exciting and disease-free trip in each other’s country, learn and experience in person again.
