Japanese Language and Culture Program comes to an end...
Hello from Tokyo!!
Japanese Language and Culture Program, session 2 is sadly almost over. However, during this program, we gained new experiences and learned much about Japanese and Japanese culture. We of course had so much fun during our stay in Japan, Tokyo.
q2In week 4, we went to Team Lab Tokyo, which is a museum where you can become part of the art by walking through water, gardens, and more. The mix of modern technology and Japanese harmony (和) attracts many people from Japanese to people from overseas. They enjoyed a new experience at the museum where they can feel the mix of technology and the Japanese traditional arts.
We also had Okonomiyaki which is a pancake-like dish, made by adding various ingredients such as any kind of protein, cabbage, and eggs. Okonomiyaki baked on an iron plate is eaten with sauce, mayonnaise, green laver, etc. They enjoyed baking Okonomiyaki, and interacting with each other while having Okonomiyaki. They got more confidence in speaking Japanese. I could get to see many people talking to waitresses in Japanese at the restaurant which makes me happy.
We hope that we will enjoy the activities til the end of this program in Tokyo!
Stay tuned for the last blog post!
My final goodbyes to the 2023 Summer Tokyo Language and Culture Program. Thank you for all the good memories kids and I hope you all continue to learn Japanese; if not, I hope you enjoyed your summer in Japan!
As the first half of our immersive language program in Japan drew to a close, our students bid farewell to their host families and hotel friends, brimming with excitement for the next chapter of their journey. Whether it was mastering the art of independence in a hotel setting or adapting to life in a traditional Japanese household, the second half promised new challenges, opportunities, and connections. But before embarking on this next phase, our students were treated to a memorable weekend in the historical mountainous countryside of Nikko.
