Today we had more experience with animations, brought to us by our very own Anna Senpai. We were able to create some of our own animations through flip books. Students were rewarded with a nice hour and a half long break. Some opted to use the prestigious Randolph-Macon athletic facilities, while others studied, or got some rest. Today was also the first day some went and explored the library.
As many of you parents may be wondering, “What is my child doing at this strange place, far far away from home?” We are learning. The beginners have expanded their Japanese vocabulary to include articles of clothing. The intermediates learned how to order food, a vital skill for venturing to the rural parts of Japan, where less English is spoken. The advanced class is working on Keigo (the most formal speech in the Japanese language).
Soon after we finish this message, we will begin preparation for another big day. Think big, which, fun fact, was actually hosted in Japan in 2020. We miss you all, even if we haven’t written to you yet to wish you Happy Birthday, or to say anything. Your children love you lots. See you soon!
