Intensive lectures were held at Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León.

The TAs took part in intensive lectures that covered topics such as soil mechanics and probability/statistics, and worked to explain the lecturer’s technical terms to the Mexican students using simple Japanese. In addition, the TAs tutored the Mexican students scheduled to enter NUT as third-year undergraduates in April on how to write scientific reports.

The TAs learned rudimentary Spanish from the Mexican students, and actively interacted with them by switching between English, Spanish, and Japanese.

Apart from the intensive lectures, the TAs participated in joint seminars with civil engineering students from Universidad de Monterrey, and also visited the Museum of Mexican History. In this way, the students had a productive trip with many activities despite the short duration.
