University Life

= Hiroshima University’s Integrated Global Studies program. (Note: Classes are, in principle, conducted only in English in this four-year program.)
linguistics
= the study of languages
the million dollar question
= the most important question. (Note: This well-known expression comes from the idea that, on a quiz show, if you answer the most important question correctly, then you win $1,000,000.)
visible
= noticeable
minority
= 少数派
to research
= 研究する
class participation
= students attending class, and especially students speaking during class
to focus on
= to concentrate on
like
= um (Note: This is a word which people often use in their sentences to give themselves time to think about what they are saying. In formal talks it should be avoided, but in casual conversation it is very natural.)
a whole bunch of
= a lot of (Note: very common in casual conversations)
assignments
= homework
the earlier stages
= the earlier parts, especially elementary school
studying is prioritized
= studying is put first, the most important thing
to be humble
= to be reserved, 遠慮する

If it comes to

to have ~ in common
= to have the same interests
a faculty
= a part of a university, 学部、

juniors
