Greg今天也來了！因為很多人期待他在我的影片中出現 :) That you want to see him in my videos again? 開不開心？ I've been getting tens of questions about going to school in Japan. 超~級~ What it's like, how I got into university in Japan and, like, a 1,000,000 things like that. 我收到好多來日本留學的問題 So I decided that we should do an updated version of my school in Japan. 像是「我是如何被日本大學錄取的？」 Q and A. 一堆類似這樣的問題 So that's what we're gonna do today. 我想應該再做一期「我的日本學校經驗Q&A」 And I asked on Twitter for your guys, these questions and you sent me tons of good one. 那就是今天影片的主題 So thank you so much. 我在推特上面詢問大家想知道什麼 So I'm gonna be looking at my phone and reading your guys those questions off here. 你們提供一大堆好問題，謝謝！ So let's get started. 我會從手機裡面看看大家的問題，然後回答 Okay? 那就開始吧！ So first of all, how did you guys get into school in Japan? 1. 你們透過什麼管道進入日本大學就讀？ Well, me and great book Two different programs. 我和Greg參加了不同的計畫 Actually, I started off with the same program that great did, which was one year language programs to come here and learn Japanese language and culture. 其實我一開始和Greg一樣 And then I transferred into the school to finish my bachelors. 我們都先上了一年的語言課程，學習日文和文化 So the process is a little different. 然後我就轉學到日本的大學，完成剩下的學分 In Greg's case, he started off at American University, right? 所以過程有點不同 And then how did you end up here? Greg的話，則是先在美國上大學，對吧？ Well, I talked to my Japanese teacher about once a study abroad in Japan and that she's the one that referred me to our international center and from their international center. 那你後來是怎麼到日本念書的？ Since most schools usually have sister schools with schools and different country, I came here to Tokyo, so I studied here for one year Japanese in Japanese culture. 首先，我和我的日文老師討論，告訴她我想去日本讀書 Yeah, that was how I started off. 她就推薦我去美國大學裡的國際中心 I was enrolled in the university in Canada, and then I just went to the International Center and asked them what kind of programs they have for coming to Japan. 大部分的學校在其他國家都有姊妹校 And they gave me a list of, I think, three schools to choose from. 我選擇了東京 Um, and I just chose to come here for a one year Japanese language program to start off with, and I was planning on going home, but I really liked it. 這一年，我學習日文和日本文化 So I stayed here and I transferred to the university. 對 我也是那樣子 But having that one year experience here in just the Japanese language program, I made lots of connections, a university, and I think it made my transfer process a lot easier. 我進入加拿大的大學後，去了國際中心 The people in the office were willing to help me out when I had problems with the forms I was filling out and stuff. 詢問有什麼計畫可以讓我去日本 And, um, I think it was just a good idea to come here for the short program to start off with, just to see if you like it and to build those connections with the school. 他們讓我從三間學校選擇 You can transfer directly into a Japanese university if you want to, but I feel like the process would be more difficult. 我是為了一年的日文課而來，作為我的起步 So personally, I recommend coming here for a short exchange program to start out foot. 原本我打算要回國，但因為我真的很喜歡這裡 Is tuition in Japan really expensive? 所以我留下來，並轉學到日本的大學讀書 Especially since you're a foreigner. 轉學前的那一年經驗 Well, actually, the school we went thio they gave us a discount because we were foreigner, my university in Canada. 讓我跟大學教授保持良好的關係 They would charge foreign students like think twice or even three times the price for tuition. 也讓我的轉學過程更順利 We're really lucky. 辦公室的人們都很樂意提供協助 Our school here gave a discount to foreign students, so I'm not sure if it's like that everywhere in Japan, it could have just then the school we went to, but it's possible that it is. 當我在填寫表格時，給予很大的幫忙 So what were their requirements for entering the school? 我認為先在日本參加短期課程，是一個好主意 Do you have any departments rendering the language for grounds? 看看你是否喜歡這裡的生活，並跟學校建立關係 We have to right, two or three? 當然，你可以直接轉學到日本來 Actually, um, director of my school actually came in interview this hustle. 但會比較困難 Okay? 所以，我個人的建議是，先參加短期的交換課程 I didn't have any interview when I entered the language program. 2. 日本的學費貴不貴？尤其當你身為外國人 I did write some essays. 事實上，我們的學校反而因為我們是外國人而提供了優惠的 Just why I'm interesting going. 我的加拿大母校，向外國人收取兩到三倍的學費 That was about it for entering the language program. 所以，我們滿幸運可以得到優惠 But when I wanted to transfer into the school to finish my degree, I needed Thio. 我不確定是否其他日本學校也是如此 Philo, maybe 30 forms. 可能剛好我們去的學校有提供 They love forms in Japan. 但在其他學校還是有可能 He'll spend lots of lots of time filling out forms for everything you do. 3. 入學條件是？ I did that. 你有遇到什麼要求嗎？就唸語言課程而言？ And I had an interview with about three different teachers. 我們要寫兩到三篇短文 Basically does asking me why I wanted to study in Japan, But I thought it would be a good idea to finish my degree here. 然後，學校的人給我們進行面試 What I want to do in the future, etcetera. 我在念語言課程前並沒有參加任何面試 As for language requirements, um, you don't need any Japanese for the school that I went to, but I wanted to take some classes in Japanese. 我的確也寫了短文，說明我的求學動機 So in that case, I needed to have the jail, Petey and two levels to be able to do that. 這是我申請語言課程的經驗 I was about it for requirements. 但當我要轉學到日本時 Um, good grades. 我必須填寫約三十頁的表格 You probably need to have good grades, but that's kind of a given. 日本人熱愛表格 ^ ^ Yeah. 做任何事都要花大把大把的時間在填寫表格上 How hard is it to make Japanese friends, huh? 之後，我和三位教授面試 I feel like death. 基本上，就是問我「為什麼想在日本念書？」 Nis people, maybe like American people, are very different when it comes to being able to make friends. 「為什麼我想在日本完成學位？」 It's a lot easier to make friends in America, even for a lot of my Japanese friends that went abroad. 「我未來的計劃是什麼？」等等 But to make friends in Japan, it's kind of hard or you don't really see them so much. 關於日文能力的要求 But they still consider you like Oh, but we're friends and maybe they don't talk to you so much. 我的大學對國際學生沒有要求，但我想上日文授課的課程 Yeah, I think like the definition of friend is different here, like in Canada. 所以我必須通過JLPT N2，才能去上課 You'd make a friend and you guys would hang out all the time on the weekend. 還有什麼入學條件？ You'd always text each other, but here you can be friends with someone, and maybe they'll they'll never invite you out anywhere or the lever invite you to their parties. 當然你的成績要不錯 But you'll see them at school and you'll wave to them and maybe they'll come over and talk to you at lunch. 4. 交日本朋友很困難嗎？ Sometimes I feel like it's it's really hard to make, like a really good friendship here, making acquaintances and people that'll come hang out with you. (苦笑) Lunch and talk to you is really easy. 我覺得日本和美國交朋友的方式完全不同 But, um, making a really good friendship where people are gonna invite you out to hang out on the weekends and stuff. 在美國，交朋友簡單多了 I don't but yet I feel like that's harder when a teacher smash your cellphone. 也比較容易跟日本留學生做朋友 If they saw you using it in class. 但在日本要交朋友就滿困難的...... Definitely not. 儘管很少見面，日本人會覺得你是他朋友，但實際上你們根本沒講過甚麼話 This guy said that he saw a video of a Japanese he just smashing a student's cell phone that was probably in high school. 是啊，我想日本和美國對「朋友」的定義有很大的差別 I would definitely believe that happened in high school here. 在加拿大，我們整天都和朋友混在一塊兒、互傳簡訊 They're so strict. 在日本，有些人會稱你為朋友，卻從不邀你出去或參加派對 But to make up for how, like, horribly strict they are in high school. 只在學校裡跟你打招呼，或午餐時跟你聊聊天 The university's air just ridiculously led it. 我覺得在日本要結交到很交心的知己不容易 Yeah, why I say good. 要認識在學校裡一起吃午餐的人倒是不難 80% maybe 93. 不過，想找到周末還想一起出去玩的好朋友 Science of the students in my classes will just be like staring at their phone playing games, talking on their friends, watching videos or sleeping s. 就沒那麼簡單了 Oh, yeah, but the teachers are very. 5. 學生上課用手機的話，老師會把它摔爛嗎？ They just let you do whatever you want. 沒有這種事 XD But, um, it's up to you. 這個人說他在動畫上看過這一幕 If you want to study and get a good grade, you could do that. 可能發生在高中吧，我相信應該有這種事 Or if you want to sleep through the whole class and fail, you could do that. 因為高中的規定非常嚴格 The teachers will just let you do whatever you want. 為了彌補高中忍受的一切，上大學後，學生會180度大轉變 Financial stuff. 八到九成的學生會在上課玩手機，甚至趴著睡覺 How did you pay for school? (心領神會) You have scholarship to Great. 大學教授一點都不嚴格 Yeah. 你自己決定，是想認真讀書取得好成績 I got a really good scholarship from an organization called Jessel. 還是你要睡到被當掉 I will link to it down below. 教授都沒有意見 Um, I got believe it was, like $800 the equivalent of about $800 Canadian a month for one year. 6. 財務題：你怎麼付學費？ So that paid for, like, all my living expenses. 我們兩個都有拿獎學金 And then I just have to worry about tuition. 我從JASSO這個組織拿到滿豐厚的獎學金，我會附上網址 Great. 每個月可以拿到800美金，為期一年 I got a scholarship from my school. 解決了我的生活費，我只剩學費要付 Actually, you made a video, right? 我從美國的大學拿到一筆獎學金 Okay, I'll link to great scholarship video here, so if you want to hear more about that, but maybe just tell us a little bit about what it's called. 對耶！你拍過一個影片談這事情 Yeah. 我也會附上Greg影片網址，有興趣的人可以去看 So there were two Scottish is actually thought there was one from my home university. 但還是稍微介紹一下，好嗎？ I think that was about two dozen dollars. 我一共申請到兩個獎學金，一個是美國大學提供的 So if you look into what your home university will give you to study abroad, maybe they have something to you. 大約有兩千美金 And then the 2nd 1 I played for it is us ownership is called the Gilman Scholarship, which I did make a video about Andi. 你可以查查自己的大學是否也有提供獎學金 They gave me $5000. 第二個獎學金是美國的Gilman獎學金 I think you can get up to $8000. 我之前有拍影片介紹 Actually, study abroad, so yeah, yeah. 他們給我五千美金，海外留學最多可以申請到八千美金 So look into scholarships from your home, university, your country, and then also look into one's the Japanese government offer, or maybe the school in Japan offer Is there really tons of different options? 所以，查查自己的大學和國家是否有提供相關的獎學金 And then once I transferred into the school here, I got a scholarship from the university here for abo $500 a month. 記得也問問日本的學校，這裡有很多選擇 Um, for a year, I have that forest, though it helps a lot, so definitely look into scholarships. 我轉學到現在的學校後，我有申請到一筆獎學金 There are so many students that don't bother looking into scholarships, but some of them are really easy to get Is just not enough people apply for them, So if you apply your, like, guaranteed to get it, so definitely look into scholarships. 每個月有500美金，為期一年 Is bullying as big of an issue in Japan as it is in America? 幫了我大忙 We see a lot of stuff on the TV about bullying in Japan. 一定要申請看看，太多人覺得麻煩就放棄了 I would say that it's probably around the same level as it is in America. 但有些其實很好申請，因為很少人去申請 It's probably the same as where, once you get university, that kind of stops. 申請幾乎就等於拿到了，所以別忘了申請獎學金 It's really just high school and middle school and elementary school, where he see bullying problem in Japan, I'd say I don't really notice anything in university. 7. 日本霸凌的情況有比美國嚴重嗎？ It all? 我們在電視上看過不少霸凌事件 No. 我會說，情況跟美國應該差不多 Can you work as a student? 大學沒什麼霸凌事件 Um, I wonder if it's different for country. 主要發生在小學到高中 Depending on your visa as a Canadian is the same for Americans That you had to work? 我自己在大學沒看過這種事 Yes. 8. 學生可以工作嗎？ You okay? 我很好奇是不是跟國籍有關？(Sharla是加拿大人) Yeah. 他們允許你工作嗎？(Greg是美國人) Like as a Canadian and American. 我有在日本工作過 Apparently. 加拿大和美國來的留學生，在日本每周可以打工28小時 You're allowed to work part time with the student visa, so I could work 28 hours a week. 我之後會專門拍一個影片，談談我的打工經驗 Um, I'm gonna make a video all about working in Japan, though, so I'll save all the work related questions for later. 相關問題我到時會回答，影片做好再把網址貼在這裡 I got lots of questions about my part time jobs and stuff like that. 9. 在美國，很多人一直參加派對，荒廢學業而無法畢業，日本有這種情況嗎？ So, yeah, I will say that for a future video, and I will link to that video here when it is made here. 有啊 XDDDDDD Most people party a lot and fail or any people like that in Japan. 我不覺得是參加派對的關係，那些人就是不做任何努力 I don't think guzzler partying. 很多人都不願意努力 Just don't do it. 但住在隔壁的人整天都在開派對 A big chunk of students will just not try not show up the classical. 我不覺得全是派對的原因 My my leg next door. 日本的「派對」和加拿大不太一樣 Neighbors, they always have people. 日式派對就是一群人聚在家裡聊天 Really? 但還是會喝點酒啦 I don't think it's like a full on party, but you're kind of different that they are kind of a job. 每個人喝一杯啤酒的程度 He's party. 然後就解散 Hold it. 跟美國和歐洲的作風非常不同 Talk, drink, dri. 被當掉就只是不努力，跟派對沒什麼關係 Click one beer each. 10. 日本學校可以抽菸嗎？ It's really not the kind of partying that you have as an image for, like, North American or European list tiles, But, um, I'd say it's not. 當然 Yeah, it's just cause they slack off if any of them failed. 我念大學時，校園裡有三四個吸菸區 Is smoking allowed in Japanese schools? 但現在只剩一個吸菸區，我想最終會全面禁菸 Yeah, way school. 目前校園內允許抽菸，但必須在指定的地方 When we first came, there were, I think maybe three or four different smoking areas, like designated smoking areas, but they've brought it down to one now, so I think they're eventually trying to phase it out completely. 11. 什麼時候放假？在美國，學校放三個月的假 But at the moment, yes, it is allowed, but in designated areas, Yeah, simulate to this car. 聖誕節不太會放假 Ready? -聖誕節不是日本的傳統節日，但這次放了多久？ -兩周 Today s M. 從聖誕節到新年有兩周的假期 U S. 學期會在二月結束，像我就剛結束一學期 Targets. 然後就一路放到四月開學，所以這段假期很長 Dissonance. 日本的學年是從四月開始 Um, let's see. 但暑假很短，大概多長？ Well, for Christmas, we don't get much of a vacation. 大概三個禮拜而已 Sometimes Christmas Day isn't even a vacation. 應該是三個禮拜 It's not a holiday here. 每次都不同，這點跟加拿大很不同 But how long did we get for Christmas vacation? 基本上，最長的假期就是二月到四月 Like two weeks? 我都用那段時間在日本旅行或回加拿大 Yeah. 以上就是最多人問的問題 We usually have about two weeks in that area. 沒回答的多半跟工作有關，我會另外拍影片，記得收看 The New Year's area, and then the semester will finish in February. Greg 今天謝謝你的幫忙 I just finished now, beginning of February, and then you'll have a break until some around the middle of April So that's like your big break really is the February April stretch, and then the school year officially starts in April. 不客氣，下次見喔 In Japan. 下次見，拜拜！ You don't really have much of a summer vacation, either. How much too weak? Yeah, three weeks or something around August. It's really random. It's a lot different than the schedule, but in Canada, but basically your big break is February. April. So that's usually the time that I used to travel around or go back to Canada. All right, so that is the majority of your questions. The ones that I didn't answer. We're probably related more to work in Japan, so I will answer those in my work video. So look out for that. Thanks for joining us big.
