Richmond Park Academy students were shown what Japanese high school classrooms look like, how Japanese students are the ones responsible for cleaning their own schools, and what kind of evacuation drills they need to learn. In addition, they learned some Japanese greetings and had the opportunity of practising some Kanji, Hiragana and Katokana characters themselves.
Here's what one student thought of her experience; "Our Japanese class was excellent! Our teacher taught us what it was like to be a student in Japan. She also taught us how to speak Japanese and also write characters of the Japanese alphabets. Our teacher was really nice and answered all our questions. We learned a lot about Japan and what the school life is like. All of our class loved it and all got involved."
