International students from UoA made presentations about greeting words, their traditional break fast, famous places and architecture in their home countries. The Elementary school students were interested in the differences between Japan and overseas countries.
At the end of the lesson, the Elementary school students were playing the "passport game" and they greeted each international students in the new languages which they learned from the lesson. The students seemed to be very happy since they could communicate with the international students. It was a fruitful day for both the Elementary school children and the international students.
