The end of day 16 included a Skype call with Japanese high school students. The call occurred at 8 pm EST, but in Japan, it was 9 am. Each academy student had the chance to introduce themselves in Japanese, and the Japanese students introduced themselves in both English and Japanese. Today included the typical language classes. In the advanced class, students learned about the world heritage sites in Kyoto, and practiced how to be polite in Japanese hotels. In the beginner class, the lessons focused on particles, and students performed a rap to help them memorize the days of the month. Thirty minutes of the day was devoted to internet time and an hour for gym time. Before dinner, students split into their oshibai play groups and worked on memorization. After dinner, the academy students will have another Skype call with the same students in Japan.
