It’s welcome week at university. I gave a short talk on Japanese culture to freshers in a university induction. I was nervous before going to the classroom, but everything was fine once I started talking. When I stood in front of them, I forgot almost everything I wanted to say, but quickly reorganised the structure of my talk. It went surprisingly well, because I was able to interact with the students more frankly.
On the day before, I was feeling some anxieties until I found a vision which freshers would be interested in. Luca gave me much advice about teaching skills. His feedback was to supply more visual variations in my PowerPoint slides and to give clearer instructions to students.
