A JET in Fukuyama

A 2016-17 AKP Alumna Elizabeth Naju (Smith College) stopped by today.

Elizabeth is currently an English teacher on the JET Program in Fukuyama Prefecture’s Takaoka City. “I’m teaching energetic students and everyday is busy, but it’s also fun,” said Elizabeth.

If you come to Kyoto, please be sure to stop by AKP again!

Helping with “Public Speaking” at Doshisha Women’s College

“We’re off to volunteer!”

The six AKPers in this photo helped with the Public Speaking class at Doshisha Women’s College on Friday, January 10. Their job was to give advice to the Women’s College students who were preparing for their English oral exams. Even though the Women’s College students will be on spring break from when their exams end until the end of March, it seems like they and the AKPers promised to try to continue meeting and communicating during the break. The AKPers forged their own path to interaction! Good job!
