The aim of this class is to support children with links abroad. We provide guidance to children so that they can go from saying “I had trouble, I don’t understand” to “I can do it, I understand” by following the content of the lessons at their schools. We value the importance of seeing a smile on children’s faces when they are able to do something on their own, and foster a passion for learning. So let’s study together! This is a volunteer class and easy Japanese is used throughout. Older children including siblings with links abroad can also volunteer to help younger students!
