Abstract   In this paper, the authors examine the reasons why outsiders such as the staff of public and private sector organizations as well as individuals made contact with the International Students Advisory Office( ISAO) at Okayama University during the period from November 1999 to March 201₇. At ISAO 80% of the visitors are the students, staff and faculty of Okayama University, and the rest, 20%, are non-university people. Because of its name, people assume that ISAO visitors are only university-related people. However, advising and supporting international students cannot be done only on-campus, but also requires support and help from people outside of the university. The purpose of this paper is to focus on this 20% of ISAO visitors and to analyze the reasons for and frequencies of their inquiries.  A total number of ₆,808 queries were made from outside the campus during the 1₇ year and ₅ month period under study. ₇8% of these were from Japanese and 22% were from foreigners. ₇₆% were residents of Okayama Prefecture.  As for their affiliation, ₃9% were individuals; 20%, the staff of educational institutions; 18%, NPO’s and other private groups; 1₇%, government officials; ₆%, company workers and managers. As for the reasons for contacting the office, the majority, ₅1%, were related to exchange/support; while 2₇%, daily life-related matters; 8%, information exchange with other students advisors; ₆%, study-related matters; and ₅%, university admission related.  In the discussion, the authors examine the inquiries by other universities, foreign governments and mass media, and analyze their meaning and characteristics. The authors also point out the typical problems pertaining to“ cultural exchanges” with schools. Finally, they look at issues related to the alumni and alumna who return as continuous users of ISAO.

Abstract  本研究では、2000 年1 月から2017 年3 月にかけて、岡山大学に在籍する留学生が遭遇した交通関連領域の事案121 件のデータを整理分類し、その実態を明らかにした。交通関連の問題は大きく3 つに分類することができる。すなわち、①交通事故、②違法行為、③その他である。交通事故が全体の65%を占めるが、事故の形態に着目すると、留学生が自転車を運転中に発生した事故が交通事故全体の4 分の3 を占める。この事実から留学生に対して自転車の安全な乗り方に関する教育を実施する必要があると判断される。本稿では留学生の自転車マナー向上に関する対策についても言及する。また、留学生が事故の被害者であるケースが40 件存在する一方、加害者であるケースも15 件存在し、留学生が一方的に事故の被害者ではないという事実も明らかになった。

Abstract  1999 年11 月から2017 年3 月にかけて、留学生相談室が関与した住居関連の事案が264 件発生し、275 人の留学生がこれらの事案に関わった。264 件の事案のうち、129 件が民間住宅に関わる事案、128 件が大学宿舎に関わる事案、7 件がその他(公営住宅、他大学宿舎)に関わる事案であった。民間住宅に関わる事案で最も多かったのは、家主・不動産屋とのトラブル44 件である。44 件中、明らかに留学生側に問題があった事案は23 件、家主・不動産屋側に非があった事案は10 件で、残りの11 件はコミュニケーション不足による誤解が招いたトラブルである。大学宿舎に関わる事案で最も多かったのは、環境・設備・備品への苦情31 件であるが、近年の改修工事により宿舎の住環境が大幅に改善された。

Abstract Uzuka and Oka (2016) studied the result of the questionnaire for international students who had tutorials by International Student Support Volunteer Group, WAWA during the period from April 2007 to March 2015 and clarified some issues such as the necessity of regular tutoring, demand to accommodate a wide variety of situations, enhancing the quality of volunteer tutors and so on. Meanwhile, a questionnaire survey for volunteer tutors was also conducted. In this paper, the authors examine the situation and the issues of tutoring for international students based on the results of this tutor survey.  A total of 113 volunteer tutors (a response rate 77.9%) responded to the survey. Research has found that periodicity, frequency and the number of items covered by tutoring are the three factors that are related to tutor satisfaction. Authors recognize statistical difficulties that there can be a mutual influence relationship among the three factors and the satisfaction of the tutors and the data used in this study are irregular repeated measurements. Based on these points of consideration, the results of this survey targeting tutors revealed that the satisfaction level of tutors who conducted periodic tutoring was significantly higher than those who did not. In addition, it was confirmed that the degree of satisfaction of tutors with more frequent tutoring was significantly higher than those with less frequent one and the satisfaction of tutors who accommodated more items was significantly higher than those who did less. Therefore, the result shows that it is the most important tasks for WAWA staff and advising teachers to build a tutoring system that can conduct periodic tutoring which offer multiple services including various living support along with Japanese language learning support at least once a week for four months.

Abstract  ボランティアによるチュータリングをテーマとした先行研究は極めて少なく、庄司(1996)、岡・坂野(2006,2008)のみである。本稿では、2007 年度から2015 年度にかけて、留学生を対象にチュータリングに関する質問紙調査を実施し、回答のあった81 人のデータを分析した結果、①定期的なチュータリングを受けた者の満足度がそうでない者より有意に高いこと、②チュータリングの内容項目が多いほど満足度が高いことを明らかにした。また、ゆとり教育世代の入学、文科省の大使館推薦国費留学生配置方針の転換、English cafe 等の創設、留学生寮へのレジデント・アシスタントの配置などがWAWA スタッフによるチューター活動に影響を及ぼしている点も指摘した。
