In this event, Waseda University’s foreign and
Japanese students pair up to make a lesson together.
This program, in cooperation with Misato Junior High School is designed to improve cross-cultural understanding in the classroom.

The details about the lesson requirements will be explained by an ICC staff member at an orientation meeting beforehand.
Afterwards, the pairs will prepare their lessons together themselves.

On the day, after the lessons everyone can go into town together for lunch.
After that you can try picking the famous and deliciously fresh Misato Blueberries as well as some other mixing activities.

If you want to mix with Japanese Junior High School Students, or you want to promote cross-cultural understanding and cooperation, then we are waiting for your application!
