Special Events in Cooperation with Local Schools
We also arrange special events in cooperation with Hapa Eikaiwa (YouTube channel with over 360k subscribers) and Cafetalk (Online learning platform with over 100k users)! To bring exchange students together, we develop educational trips that come as a set, including programs with local schools and homestay arrangements. We promote these events via Cafetalk and Hapa Eikaiwa.
Latest Educatinal Trip
Summer Camp for Children Ages 3-13
This event was held in cooperation with the musical summer camp LightsUP. All homestay arrangements were made by Contact Canada. In this newly developed parent-child educational trip, Japanese children attended the camp together with local kids.
FIELD REPORT Karin (7 y.o.), Ran (5 y.o.)
Our daughters Karin and Ran attended this trip together. We were worried because especially our younger one is shy and her English is not that good yet. To our surprise, she made friends on the very first day, and in the end, she was so sad to leave she nearly started crying.
On the final recital on Friday we were so proud to see out daughters singing in English and doing their best with their English lines. We became friends with the local parents and met up with them on the weekends to go to the park. With the kids at the camp, I was able to visit coffee shops during the day, go shopping, and fully enjoy myself! We are planning to participate next year as well.
