Today we say farewell to our Hiroshima study group!
We have thoroughly enjoyed having the 11 Hiroshima school students with us for the past 2 weeks!
As well as English classes they also took part in our homestay programme and daily activities.
I have really loved watching their confidence grow throughout the activities and will be missing them all next week!
During their time here we enjoyed a beautiful walk to Byron’s lighthouse, a didgeridoo lesson, volleyball at the beach, Aussie food tasting, boomerang painting , a scavenger hunt, and a sunny afternoon at the beach!
They also got to cuddle koalas at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, go surfing in the one of the World’s best surf spots, and visit an Australian high school to share their culture with the students there.
Mikio, Ryo, Nonoka, Haruna, Rei, Itsumi, Ai, Yuno, Ryuta and Fuki graduate from Kristy’s Elementary class. Kristy says she has loved teaching them all. They loved the language games they played in class and practiced lots of pronunciation, with them all making big improvements! They were very shy when they first joined us but their personalities all shone through into their second week!
Mana graduates from Michelle’s Pre-Intermediate class. Michelle says she has a beautiful and graceful approach to learning. Her understanding of grammar and use of vocabulary has been excellent and her speaking has improved during her time with us.
We are sure this has been a wonderful experience for them and one they will remember forever!
