New Friends in India


2017.11.20

English is a tool we can use to make new friends, learn about other cultures and exchange ideas. With that in mind, the students of the high school honours class used Skype to make new friends in India. How did this idea begin? Well, with the help of one of our native English teachers, one of our Japanese teachers travelled to India in the summer and made a connection at a prestigious school called The Hindu Senior Secondary School. A teacher there, Ms. Senthil agreed that students in different countries, different cultures can learn many things from each other and become friends.
New technology has made it easy and quick to communicate around the world. It was a great thrill to speak and be understood by people so far away. It was really wonderful to see how quickly and naturally children can make friends. On the first day, the Indian students waved Japanese flags and sang a Japanese song. The Wayo students had some questions about India and they also sang a song. All students and teachers agreed it was a very special lesson.
On the second day, the Indian students first made wonderful presentations about disasters and disaster management. The Wayo students listened carefully and asked some questions. After the presentations, the Indian students explained about traditional Indian dress.
Next Friday, Wayo students will make presentations about how Japan prespares for disasters. We will also introduce some aspects of Japanese culture, including yukata, shodo, and the koto.
It is so wonderful to see the students using English to make a bridge of friendship.
