Memories of my Intensive Japanese Language Course – Part 1

Memories of my Intensive Japanese Language Course – Part 1

Just like most Embassy recommended Monbukagakusho scholarship students, I came to Japan as a Research Student.

Thanks to the Japanese Government and the Japanese Nation as whole!

I would like to thank the Japanese Government and the Japanese nation as a whole for granting me the Monbukagakusho Scholarship which enabled me to come to Japan for my PhD studies at Tokyo Institute of Technology. Of course, I had to beat other applicants to it but that competition would not have been there had it not been for the generosity of the Japanese people. They have been offering these scholarships since 1954.

Hello everyone!

My name is Clement Nthambazale Nyirenda, the same guy who blogs at nthambazale.com. After many months of hesitation, I have finally succumbed to the temptation of opening a subdomain blog. This blog will focus on my personal experiences in the land of the Rising Sun (Japan) and Afro-Japanese issues. My main blog will continue to focus on technology and its use in the fight against poverty.

Depending on my Japanese language ability, I will sometimes write in Japanese.But, hey, I do not promise because writing in Japanese is difficult (日本語で書きかたは難しい).
