English Camp a Success

Last weekend 5 SICE students, 5 ALTs, and 10 University of Gandai students carried out an English-only weekend for 20 middle schoolers. It was called English Camp and has become an annual event since the tsunami. The students came from both the coastal area in Iwate and from the Morioka area. We stayed at a seminar house near Mt. Iwate. Each room had 1 American, 1 Japanese university student, and 2 middle school students from different schools. Although the students were tense at first, it didn’t take long to break the ice. There were lots of games and activities which required everyone to use English, though communication generally depended on lots of gestures and expressive faces.  Enjoy the photos!
