Ken Hamanaka (Japan)
Alumnus (Summer 2010)
Currently Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach at Lycoming College, PA
Graduated from West Virginia University

After graduation I attended West Virginia University with the goal of becoming a head manager for the men’s basketball program. I graduated from West Virginia University with a degree in Athletic Coach Education in May 2013, and was offered a job as an assistant men’s basketball coach at Lycoming College. I am using my Optional Practical Training (OPT) visa to stay in the U.S. with the hopes of continuing to advance in my chosen profession.

This path that I have taken all began when I started HTIC five years ago. When I arrived in Hawaii, I had not had any exposure to the English language. When I found myself involved in conversations with others who spoke the language, it was very difficult to follow. It was in this first year that I began to question my decision to challenge myself, and whether I had made the right decision to leave my homeland. The faculty and staff at HTIC were really supportive of my entire college life in Hawaii, but it was in this first year that I truly began to recognize my potential as not only a student, but a human being. They encouraged me to get involved in extra-curricular activities like the student government. Most importantly, while I was there, I was able to find my passion, and that is something that has led me to my career choice, and enabled me to become the coach, mentor, and professional I am today. I would not be where I am today without the dedicated professionals at HTIC. It allowed me to get started on what I hope to be a long and prosperous career in my field of choice. I could not be where I am today without the support and dedication of the entire community at HTIC. I am truly blessed to be a part of such a great organization. If you are looking to developing English speaking skills that can prepare you for a four year university in the United States, HTIC is the place to be!

My English skills have improved by living in Hawaii, where the culture is completely different from Japan. Unlike the typical classroom style in Japan, the size of the classes are kept small at HTIC (average of ten students per class) to encourage active student participation and interaction. In addition to being highly professional, all of the instructors instruct with great care and always look out for the students. Since most students live in HTIC’s student dormitory, we can spend a lot of time together to do homework or prepare for presentations. There are many opportunities to practice English in Hawaii. Since Americans are generally very friendly towards strangers, it gives me the opportunity to further improve my English communication skills by actively engaging in conversations with them or by participating in local volunteer activities. I believe that my experience in Hawaii and HTIC will help me in fulfilling my goal of becoming a global citizen.

日本とは文化が異なるハワイで生活することで、私の英語力が上達しました。HTICの授業スタイルは日本とは異なり、10人前後という少ないクラスサイズです。授業に参加すること、つまり学生が積極的に発言することが重要なのです。先生方は皆、厳しさの中に優しさがあり、とても丁寧に教えてくれます。また、ほとんどの学生が学生寮に住んでいることから、宿題やプレゼンテーションの準備などたくさんの時間を共有でき、さらにお互いを高め合うこともできます。日々の生活を通して英語を使う場面はたくさんあります。米国人は初対面であっても、とてもフレンドリーに話しかけてきます。現地の人々との会話やボランティア活動を通して、さらに自分の英語力を向上させることができます。ハワイとHTICで培ったたくさんの経験は、私がグローバルシチズンなるための助けとなることでしょう。

Entering HTIC is going to change your life. When I was in Japan, I was searching for a “trigger” that could change my life. During this journey, I became reaware of the fact that I only live once. Through this realization, I decided to explore things that I can only do while I am young. This is why I decided to move to Hawaii to study. Since arriving here, I have been learning many things that I could have not learned in Japan. One of the things that I have been learning is to speak English more effectively and to better communicate with people from the United States. I have also been learning about accepting other cultures that are different from my own. I am not only learning these things from textbooks and teachers, but also from people I come across in town, my friends and people all around me. If you are considering enrolling at HTIC, I believe that it will be a great opportunity that could change your life.

私は日本での生活の中で、自分の人生を変える何かのきっかけを探していました。その最中に、人生は一度きりであることを再認識しました。若いうちにしかできないことをやろうと思い立ち、ハワイへの留学を決断しました。HTICでは、日本では学ぶことのできない米国人とのコミュニケーションの取り方の違い、文化の受入れ方、効率よく英語を話す方法等、あらゆることを学んでいます。私はこれらのことを教科書や先生の教えからだけではなく、街行く人たち、友人、そして周りのすべての人々から吸収しています。もし、あなたがHTICへの入学を検討しているのでしたら、それは人生を変える大きなきっかけになるはずです。

“Hawaii Tokai International College is not your ordinary college, and that is exactly why I chose it. The class sizes are small, and this allows you to not only get to know your fellow students on a personal level, but your teachers as well. The environment at HTIC is very welcoming and safe, and the faculty and staff as well as the students are friendly. While student life may cause stress, the student government at HTIC schedules a student outing each semester, allowing the students to relax and converse with each other. HTIC has provided me with many skills that I believe I would not have been able to learn anywhere else.”

HTICへの入学の決め手は、伝統的なカレッジではないことです。少人数で行われる授業ではクラスメイトだけではなく、教員とも距離感のない関係を築くことができます。学校環境はとても歓迎的かつ安全で、さらに教職員と学生はとても友好的です。就学中にストレスを感じたとしても、学生会が気分転換をはかれるように、学生同士が触れ合うイベントを各学期間ごとに催しています。HTICは他のカレッジでは学ぶことのできないたくさんのスキルを与えてくれていると確信しています。

Before I came to HTIC from Korea, I was majoring in Japanese since I like learning languages and cultures of various countries. I found myself getting frustrated, however, since there were not enough opportunities to practice Japanese or English outside of the classroom. Now at HTIC, I have plenty of opportunities to practice Japanese and English on a daily basis. The small classroom style makes it easy to participate in class and freely express my opinions. After school, I can practice Japanese with my Japanese classmates and learn about the Japanese culture from them. There are also plenty of opportunities to become a part of the local community through volunteer programs and other community activities. If you have a dream of discovering your career abroad, the most important step is to make the decision to study overseas. When you take the first step, I believe that you will be able to meet friends who will encourage you and share your dreams at HTIC.

他国の言語と文化を学ぶことが好きな私は、HTICへの留学前に韓国で日本語を専攻していました。
しかし、クラス外で日本語と英語を実践して使う機会が少ないことにもどかしさを感じていました。ところが、HTICに入学した今、少人数での授業はクラス参加と発言機会がたくさんあります。放課後は日本人のクラスメイトと日本語で会話ができ、日本の文化も同時に学んでいます。更に、ボランティア活動などを通じて、地元コミュニティに参加する機会もあります。重要なのは、夢の実現のために海外に出る志を持つことです。海外で自分のキャリアを見つけたいと考えているなら、あなたを励まし、一緒に夢をシェアしてくれる親友に出会うことができるはずです。
