International Students Participate in the English Festa at a Local Elementary School


On November 29, eight international students who are studying at the University of Tokushima took part as guest teachers in the English Festa at Fukushima Elementary School in Tokushima. They were assigned to 5th and 6th grade classes where they introduced themselves in English or their native language, and listened to presentations by the elementary pupils. They also took part in games in the gym with all 550 pupils at the school.

It was a good opportunity for the international students to actually visit an elementary school to meet with Japanese children and see how Japanese education is conducted, and for everybody to learn about other cultures.
