教職員への一問一答

好きな言葉(座右の銘)を教えて下さい。
Although I am not a big ice-hockey fan, Wayne Gretzky’s “You miss 100% of
the shots you don’t take” is a great quote.
If we don’t try, we have already failed.
So, it’s in your best interests to give things a shot.
休日の過ごし方や趣味を教えてください。
When I have a day off, I like to go cycling with a group.
If cycling is not an option,
I like to try to write music at home or listen to records.
1週間の休みと100万円が自由に使えたら、どこで、何をしますか?
I would take a holiday and fly first-class.
I have always wanted to experience first-class flying.
過去の1日で、「もう1度やり直せる日」があるとしたら、それはいつで、どうしたいですか?
There are plenty of things I have done that I could change but that’s a part of
life. People often say you shouldn’t have regrets, but I believe wishing you
could change things you have done makes you human. It is perfectly natural.
大学4年間で「学生に訪れてほしい場所」はどこですか?その理由も教えて下さい。
Having spent five years in Fukuoka, I would like the students to visit Dazaifu, a spiritual place for students to pray for academic success.
大学4年間で「学生に読んでほしい本」は何ですか?その理由も教えて下さい。
Regarding books for inspiration, I love The Little Prince
by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The students probably
already know the story so trying to read it in English
should be too challenging. For students who want to
write well, Steven Pinker’s The Sense of Style has lots of great advice.
