Last Friday Year 9 students, (who take Japanese) met with 18 Japanese students from Shikoku Chuo City. Our students had prepared their Kiwiana gifts and practised basic conversation phrases. The Japanese students showed Kiwi students how to make a Mizuhiki, the art of tying paper cords. They tried to communicate with some Japanese and some English. They also used gestures, pictures and Google translation. It was a great experience for both sets of students.
