I had a wonderful time with everyone at the picnic. It was a great event.
While I appreciate that the school makes an effort to offer more speaking opportunities, this event should have some topic cards available or games to break the ice, etc. I think this will give everyone an opportunity to talk and listen to each person. At times there are students who take over the entire conversation and don’t give others the chance to speak. Other than that, I appreciate that there are volunteers who take the time to talk with Japanese learners.
The tour and the castle was a nice way to introduce Japanese history. The tour guide was excellent at using the surroundings to bring the history to life.
My reason for giving four stars is that I already know Japanese quite well and so I didn't learn anything new but I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is either new to Japan and/or wishes to take the first steps to learning about Japan's rich and interesting history.
A superb chance to chat with native speakers and put into practice what learnt during the classes.
Great fun! Really well organized!
The skiing itself was so-so (would have liked some harder slopes) but everything else about the trip was great, especially the buffet dinner
Very pleased. Please organize for next sumo season! I'll certainly join!
It was a great opportunity to take part in an exciting, genuine Sumo Tournament, with all of the main figures on stage.
