The English Circle of Friends is for Japanese students, international students, faculty and administrative staff to enjoy English conversations. It is coordinated by Gifu University faculty members who have overseas experiences.

Participants can bring lunch, coffee and tea, and talk each other on a variety of themes. Let's improve practical English communication skills as well as make friends through English conversations. International student tutors are always on standby to support.

Participants not only enjoy English conversations but also listen to presentations by people who have overseas experiences, and get useful information and advices about study abroad.
