Ocean Charter Elementary School

We spent the morning at Ocean Charter Elementary School in Los Angeles where Japanese is taught to all children from the first to the eighth grade. One group stayed on the south campus with Eiji Yano-sensei (photo) and the other group went to the north campus and learned from Hiromi Yoneda-Matsue-sensei. More than learning about how Japanese is taught there, the most important thing was to realize how important it is for Japanese students majoring in International Exchanges to study a lot more about the Japanese culture, language and history. Yano-sensei: Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity and for the warm welcome. We were impressed at how good your students are at Japanese and how interested and engaged they are in the culture. We really appreciate your kindness and wish you all the best!
