Cultural Exchange in Okinawa

The Stars and Stripes web site carried an article yesterday on Japanese elementary school students experiencing a bit of American life on a US base in Okinawa. About 80 third-grade students from Kitatama Elementary School in Chatan visited the Bob Hope Primary School on the Kadena Air Base. They spent the day with American students, trying their hand at various activities and games. Kitatama is one of the schools in the region that has already introduced English into its curriculum. Students are taught by volunteers from the base.
