I participated in the ‘Kaichi fieldwork programme’ this June 2014. This is my second year running and I love participating. This is a field trip for Japanese students in high school (year 10s) to visit England and practice their English proficiency, as well as visiting some sights.
It was pretty similar to last year but we got to go to Hampton Court this time instead of Windsor Castle. I had a fairly mixed English speaking level for students in my group. I had 7 in total but was technically 6 as one of my kids was ill and had some allergic reaction, so his skin flared up. Since he never felt well, he didn’t participate in group discussions, came to eat with us, nor presented his presentation all students had to prepare for this trip. It was sad for me but I gave them each a little goodie bag full of souvenirs – breakfast tea, shortbread, chocolate, polaroid photo of them and me, luggage tag, plus the tote bag with London design.
I hope to visit them next year and shall cherish my memories ^^
Do you participate in any youth group events?
