After one month ago, I had a chance again to meet participants of Japan on Track, a re-education program of Japanese language, in Gadjah Mada University (UGM), Yogyakarta, in 27 November 2014.
This time, I conducted a discussion workshop on “For what you study in UGM?”. After this simple question, participants discussed and made presentation, for related several other questions, too. Even if only seven students were present, their discussion was very interesting and maybe they could get opportunity to think about relative deeper consideration on relation between theory and experience, between managers and workers, and company and workers on job-hopping phenomena.
Unfortunately because of time limitation, another discussion theme as “Work for What?” and “Live for What?”. I hope next opportunities.
In the afternoon, they learnt basic of business manner in Japanese company, instructed by a Japanese HRD company in Jakarta, with practice of standing, sitting and bowing.
I remembered many same way in politeness and courteousness seen in Indonesia, as in business manner in Japan. Participants looked like fun and enjoyed this lesson.
Today (28 November), we had farewell lunch with JoT participants at the Hikari Japanese restaurant in Yogyakarta, with Prof. Kozano from Aichi Prefectural University. Thank you and see you next time, my good friends.
