南半球は真冬。。。 [Australia 2008]

Whenever I read my essay written in English after I up on the blog, I feel something strange and found out many mistakes. I hope everyone reading my essay forgets those things. I will do my best to fix such misses.

Anyway, I have some Japanese classmates. One of them is a well trained surgeon who graduated from one of the famous medical school in Tokyo. He is a very kind man and prepare for the next OET test. Recently, he has been approved by an international institution to have a medical train in Europe, so in the next year, he will move to Europe. (Smmmmmmmmart!!!)

When I met him, he told me lots of things as for medical world in Japan. When he explained about “things,” he said that the environment of workplace in Japan seemed too much terrible. He finished his training as a surgeon and he also accomplished his responsibilities for his facility. Though some of my close friends are working as medical workers in Japan, his story was in almost same context. It is very clear for all that medical system in Japan is now under the worst situation. Australia dose not have enough medical workers right now, but their rights as workers are strongly protected by law. While he strongly appreciates self-sacrificed attitudes among Japanese doctors and nurses, he is supposed to prefer the environment around here.

Here have some Japanese nurses. Most of them also told me about bad conditions in Japanese hospital. Before they came here, they had decided to come back to Japan. They have a strong license in Japanese labor market, so it might be not hard to firstly quit job, study abroad for a while, and find out job again. Their stay here means both a rest and a study. They are very decent and know how to manage everything here. In addition, most of them are around age 30+ singles.

英語は厳しい(日々を耐えつつ書く) [Australia 2008]

英語は厳しい(日々を耐えつつ書く)そして、日々泣きながら直す。
Here are lots of non-natives having strong motivations to get medical license. Though I had not been sure about Australian system for international students to become medical something(doctor, dentist, nurse,etc), I understand one of the real pass ways for it.
It is true that Australians are very welcome to international medical professionals because they does not have enough number of professionals for their health system. Australia opens a little bit the gate for international candidates to study medical schools to become MD. But medical schools cost them much expensive tuition (AU$40,000).
On the other hand, Australia opens more widely the door for medical professionals having enough work experience and English skill as medical workers.
In my class, there are various classmates studying medical English for OET test. However, even Indian students have recognized that their English skills are not enough to communicate with natives in medical settings. This is a reality. Most classmate told me that OET test was easier than IELTS(7.0). But I do not think so.
Average age in the class is older than I supposed. Most of students have already married and have children.
Some Chinese nurses clamed me that nurses had no respect and less income in China. A Colombian doctor told me that her country was still controlled by drug dealers and she had no hope of her country. It was a great pity for her that USA did not give her visa because of her nationality. Colombia could be one of the most dangerous countries today in the world because the government, which is supported by international nations including USA, can not politically control the whole country.
Fortunately, her husband could get a student visa from Australia. So she was permitted staying here with her husband. This is why here she can prepare for the next OET test.
For a long time, I hate to participate in lectures at schools. My past experiences of lectures sometimes seemed like a kind of shows to justify both responsibilities of Profs and students. However, the environment of my class is completely different.
When I was a student almost 10 years ago, I loved one lecture, "History of social thoughts." It was quite unpopular among students because the most important thing for the Prof was to let us know some titles of classic books. He cited lots of classic titles. His way of teaching gave me too much suggestions, though I was not a "good student." Through his lectures, I guessed that he had his own rule of teaching and he strictly followed it. He put priority on to encourage a few students who had motivation of reading important classic books. He would like to make us understand the priority number which we should read for our major. I think this might be one of better ways for students having strong motivations. While I like still his way of teaching, I noticed here the importance of students` motivation,again..

英語はかなり適当です、てへ☆   After now, I write my essay in English for my study. [Australia 2008]

There are supposed to be lots of things around here which I wanna write. The first thing was that the owner of my apartment had a terrible infectious disease. So, I need to find out a new accommodation ASAP...........
Compared with Japan, I am very lucky because it is easy to find out a room or a house in this country. Though we Japanese have already recognized usefulness of shared accommodations, we still have not thought it as a real option of daily life. Though there seems to be several reasons behind it, I am happy because I found out easily my next accommodation.
In reality here, the most surprised fact is the higher price of almost all staffs in this country. When I lived in Sydney almost ten years ago, the exchange rate from Yen to AU$ was about 70yen to 1AU$. That was too cheap, isn’t it? At that time, if I ordered a full course of prefixed one in a decent Italian restaurant, it cost me only 35 AU$, which was equal to 2500yen. So, I cannot help remembering the best moment for Japanese to travel or stay here.
Until about 20 years ago, Australian government had a policy which banned immigrants who wanted to live in Australia. That had been famous in Japan as a “白豪政策” but almost 20 years ago they have changed this policy and, eventually, a third of population is surprisingly now boned abroad in this country. In fact, Australian cities like Sydney, Melbourne have huge amount of immigrants. Whenever I walked on the street I felt their portion is much more than one third. In general, they started their first step as a manual worker, and then they had sons and daughters here, and they made their children study hard to become professionals, like lawyers and doctors who can get more money. This is a typical success legend among immigrants and also this is why most of them can tolerate their poor conditions.
To be honest, I love this country and I hope Japan will open the gate to foreigners and permit them to live as residents or citizens. This is partially because it seems the only way for us to solve the imbalance of our high aged population society, but mainly because I love cultural diversity.
We all know unconsciously that we are experiencing globalization, while most of Japanese have no real contact of it. If you love China towns or Korean towns in Tokyo, Yokohama and Kobe, you could understand what I mean. Actually, before WWⅡ, we had more various nationalities near us. It is important that we must regret our wrong history for Asian people, but also I think we should start again to open the door for the immigrants.
