【Report】Home Visit for international students, on June 8th, 2019

19 International students visited Japanese families and spent a pleasant afternoon. 🌸
Date: Saturday, 8th of June, 2019, 13:00-17:00
Meeting place: MIFA

Voice of international students who participated in the program:
・It was a fantastic experience.
・My host family was absolutely lovely and we talked about a whole range of topics in both Japanese and English.
・The host family were very friendly and made me feel at home. I was very comfortable talking with them about everything.
・They had very good command over English which helped me communicate to them better. But they were also encouraging me to speak in the Japanese that I know, by asking me basic questions in Japanese.
・They had lots of activities planned out, activities which are more or less exclusive to Japan like playing Japanese card game and tea ceremony.
・Very fresh experience, beyond my expectation. I can feel that they did design the activities for the afternoon, to make me feel interesting.
・It is one of the most fantastic experiences in my living in Japan
・May be this activity can be implemented in stages, in which this home visit can be first stage of this activity, at second stage, a group of japanese families can go together for an excursion somewhere in vicinity of Tokyo for a day, and then final stage if the applicant agrees, visit to home country of the applicant by the interested Japanese families.
・普段行ける機会がなかった日本の家庭に訪問することができて、家庭料理の作り方を教えてもらったりいろいろ話し合ったりできて楽しかったです。
・たこ焼き、ちらし寿司、茶碗蒸しなどを一緒に作りました。個人的な話や日本に来てからの出来事とかを話し合ったり、生活に関するアドバイスをもらったりしました。
