This week students in Year 9 Japanese were given the opportunity to interact and use the Japanese they had learnt in the classroom with students from Seien Girls High School in Japan.
For the past three years this school has done a day visit at our school in November as part of their school trip to Australia. This year, given the restrictions on international travel, students were able to meet virtually through ZOOM and talk about themselves. This gave the students in Year 9 a great opportunity to speak in Japanese and learn more about Japanese culture. It was a great success as students participated in short 10 minute conversation sessions over an hour. The students are to be congratulated on their effort and use of Japanese. We look forward to next year and hope that we can do more ZOOM sessions like this to connect with students in Japan.
