On the other hand, although project work is considered as one essential subject, it is a new studying method which is still strange to students when they first come into university.

[...] Because of that reason, researchers asked students mainly from Faculty of Language and Culture Study, whose doing project is one indispensable part to finish course. In the first year, students were trained to conduct just some main parts of projects. During that time, some theories are shown to let them understand partly what project work is, so the importance of project work in the first year is not fully stressed.
