On April 24, we were able to enjoy an excellent presentation by Tomoko Uezono. She was talking about how she raised her children to be bilingual, and gave lots of advice to the students on how to do this. This advice included such things as reading English books to them, traveling abroad, continuing to study yourself, and not worrying about making mistakes. She provided an excellent role-model for everyone who attended.
Before her lecture, Mayumi, Ai, Hikaru, Yuki, Saki, and Erina—some of our 3rd-Year students who studied abroad in New Zealand last spring—gave presentations about their experiences in New Zealand. They covered such topics as classes in NZ, home stays, differences between the two countries, and New Zealand’s café culture.
