Meeting the President!
Day three ended with the academy celebrating Libby's birthday with cupcakes and fruit. Day four began with the beginner students not only learning how to introduce themselves in Japanese, but also a song about the four seasons that will be performed on July 13th. Advanced students reviewed katakana (the alphabet meant for foreign words) pronunciation and received some self study time in order to continue working on the scripts for the upcoming plays. After morning classes, students received a guest lecture from a professor of music and film, James Doering, who discussed the importance and impact of music and sounds in Japanese films, such as Spirited Away, which the students watched the night before. Finally, students met the president of Randolph-Macon College, Robert Lindgren, and each received a college themed t-shirt. In return, both Professor Doering and President Lindgren received academy t-shirts from the students.
