TMDU/Waseda Discussion Café on January 28, 2017


On Saturday January 28, the 7th Discussion Café was held at TMDU. Discussion Café is a collaborative event between Waseda University and TMDU that brings undergraduate and graduate students from diverse experiences and backgrounds together to enjoy a discussion in English. Nearly 50 participants came to this event, which included Japanese and International students from both universities.
This time, the theme was “How is the relationship between Japan and the world changing as a result of globalization?”. Discussion especially focused on the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics and English Education in Japan. Participants eagerly engaged in the discussion by expressing their opinions from their own various perspectives such as medicine, economics and politics.
We would like to say thank you to all of the participants who joined us and made for an exciting and fruitful discussion. We also want to thank the Waseda ICC staff we worked with to prepare for this event. The next DCafé will be held in June on Waseda’s campus and we look forward to seeing you all there!
