||Ａ： At a university, people often gather in small groups to read books of
their specialty or present their own survey results. Such a study method,
called a seminar, is common in foreign countries and in Japan.
The Mathematical Institute offers a seminar,
where several students read a book written in English under the guidance of an instructor during the senior year.
Because the small group system helps the instructor comprehend how well participating students understand, appropriate guidance remarkably improves their competence.
Moreover, a seminar secures students an opportunity to see their instructor every week and discuss various issues.
Additionally, they acquire the ability to read literature in foreign languages related to their research.
