9th Graders Get a Peek at What's Ahead

Students from Daigo Junior High School in Kyoto are getting a glimpse of what's ahead of them in their academic careers. Groups of 9th grade students are making brief visits to high schools in the city, studying topics not covered in their school's curriculum, as part of their "sogo gakushu" (integrated studies). Last Friday, a group of five students visited Nishi High School, which is affiliated with Kyoto University of Foreign Studies. In lessons given by foreign teachers, they learned practical English - including slang - which is a characteristic of the school's curriculum. The lessons were conducted entirely in English. They also heard from high school students about their experiences studying abroad. In the autumn, students will have to give a presentation on their findings at various schools during their own school's culture festival.
