ICC’s Outreach: School Visit – Enjoy interacting with children in English! -

Place: Wasedajitsugyo Elementary School (Kokubunji, Tokyo)
Eligibility: Waseda students (See below for details)
Registration: Required (See below for details)

Get paired with a Japanese partner and visit a Japanese elementary
school to do fun activities with children in English!

For this Outreach, the students will join English classes at Waseda's
affiliated elementary school. The theme is "Manga".
The children have been learning English through English versions of
Japanese manga. Waseda students will communicate with the children
in English about the manga they have been studying.

International students should be ready to talk about any Japanese
manga that is popular in their home country and any Japanese manga
that they themselves like.
Local students will help support English communication between the
international students and the children and help with explanation.

No prior lesson preparation is required for this program, however,
team-teaching pairs (matched by the ICC) should meet in advance and
look over the English versions of the manga. This will ensure that
they can work smoothly during the class.

The Outreach Program is ideal for those interested in cross-cultural
education, volunteering, exchange with a Japanese student, practicing
public speaking, or teaching after graduation. We look forward to your
