After the completion of our first week, we have grown used to the schedule of the Japanese Academy. Many are beginning to reminisce about their time at home, but they have also found a new home among their peers and in the dorms. Every day is a new adventure here in Ashland, Virginia.
Today’s adventure was the first of the second week of this three week program. While most people dread Mondays, here at the academy we look forward to them. Today started off with our daily classes. We continued our Top Secret Oshibai Planning™. In the afternoon, we were fully immersed in the Japanese language. In addition to our core language classes, we were able to witness the creativity and true syntax of native speakers through the enjoyment of two popular Japanese television shows. After the viewing party, we completed our study of the Kanji from yesterday’s scavenger hunt. Like every day here at the Academy, today was fun and fulfilling, and we look forward to the rest of our time here!
