■ Message
Do you have a dream or goal for the future? You will find that you enjoy your studies a great deal more if you have a clear goal. For language learners, it’s important that you get as much contact with the language as possible so please make the most of APU’s unique campus environment. I hope that you all become outstanding global citizens with equally outstanding communication skills.
