Today was the very first day of the World Campus Japan program 2012. We’re going to make it the best one yet. I think we’ll gain some amazing friendships and experiences this year, here in Japan. We are now in Omura, which is located near Nagasaki. This session is focused on experiencing the school life in Japan. We will visit some elementary schools and some high schools.
This morning we got to meet all the people that are participating in the first session. In the first session we have a diverse group with people from Canada, the Netherlands, the United States, etc. Today we started with meeting each other and played some games to get to know each other. It was a lot of fun and everyone is really excited to get started with the first session. After that, we started to practice for the upcoming Arigato-event. This event allows us to say “thank you for everything” to our host families by singing, dancing and playing games. We did a lot of singing and dancing in the afternoon. In the end we all were exhausted, but we had a lot of fun. Tomorrow is another day of new experiences.
The adventure has begun, we are all here to have the time of our lives. It’s on!
