Visiting student from California State University, Chico (Chico State).

The ELCC Department is extremely delighted to welcome Laura Talley, a visiting student from Chico State. Laura will be at SWU for two months and will attend some of the English courses in the Department. Our students are very excited to meet her and to communicate with an English speaker who does not understand any Japanese. Explaining about Japanese culture and suggesting places to visit to Laura are some of the real communicative activities they will undertake. The students are also teaching her some basic ‘survival’ Japanese phrases and customs. In this photo, Laura is learning the art of Japanese calligraphy with two ELCC students and is writing her name in Japanese characters.

We hope Laura enjoys her stay in Japan!
