This program allowed me to learn a lot of knowledge that cannot be learned from textbooks. At the same time, I also realized the enthusiasm and help of Indonesian students and teachers. We went to many tourist attractions with Indonesian characteristics. We liked them very much. We not only learned a lot of knowledge during the trip, but also made a lot of new friends. During this trip, we also got closer to anggelong and the culture from Java to Suku Sunda. I like the project of this school very much, and I fell in love with the city of bandung because of this project. Given the chance, I will definitely go to this city again.

ตลอดระยะเวลา 2 สัปดาห์ในโครงการซัมเมอร์แคมป์ครั้งนี้ เป็นช่วงเวลาที่ดีมากๆ ทำให้ฉันได้รู้จักกับเพื่อนใหม่ๆ ที่มาจากหลายๆประเทศ ซึ่งมีความแตกต่างกันทั้งวัฒนธรรม อายุ และภูมิลำเนา อีกทั้งฉันยังได้ไปสถานที่ท่องเที่ยวต่างๆ ที่สวยงามมากมายในประเทศอินโดนีเซีย

This summer program allows me to make new friends despite the culture , age , background differences. Furthermore , I got to explore the in-sight of indonesia including the hidden attractive spot and many more in the Java area. It is a great opportunity!

Unpad Summer Program

Unpad Summer Program
The summer of 2018 was very exciting for me.
I met a lot of people, learned about culture, and had valuable experiences.
The reason I wanted to participate in this program is not to know Indonesian life and culture at all despite researching Indonesia.
Honestly, I was uneasy about this two week in Indonesia. One reason is that hot water does not come out and tap water can not be consumed. But the main reason was that Japanese participant was only me. In fact, I can not say that I am a student who is good at English. I was very worried that I could get along with everyone alone. But I didn’t need to worry at all. All the university students, teachers and program participants were kind and able to get along with everyone. At last day, we cried for sad..hahaha
So if you are worried about taking part in this program for the same reason as myself, I think you should join! I think it will be an unforgettable summer for you!
