English Conversation (December 2015)

In December 2015, cross functional teams conducted English conversation lessons for the 1st grade students. Our PENTAX Medical teachers introduced their daily job, experiences of living abroad and encouraged each student to discuss their thoughts in English. Various stories of interaction with customers, colleagues, studies and friendships were well received by students who are dreaming about becoming engineers and scientists. They are convinced that English is essential in order to share and elaborate ideas and thoughts with many people.

In March 2016, we conducted brainstorming in English for future endoscopes with 2nd grade students. Three staff members including two engineers facilitated the brainstorm. The students spoke about their innovative ideas for future endoscopes.

In both lessons, we received positive feedback from the students, that they were encouraged to learn English so that they can discuss their ideas with many people around the globe.
