There are many choices of instructors for my business major in Edmonds community college, and many older students are trying to study degree courses. Moreover, recently a lot of international students have come from development counties to U.S., so our colleges seems like cultural diversity activity. And of course, Many classes related Communications must be active due to cultural differences of different ethnic students. In last summer, I could enjoy such cultural diversity from the class when I was in the Communications class, so I could experience many different cultures indirectly through the presentation time. After then, possibly I recognized for myself that my insight was opened to an world wide sight. Others' memorable experiences must be enough to lead my insight toward the world, great communication.
