アメリカ研修 " Don't let you go! "
"Don't let you go!"
We had Farewell Presentation at Cafeteria. Our host family and new friends we had made during stay came and enjoyed our presentation. Compared with our first presentation, this time was much better. Students were full of confidence. I noticed that they wanted to show gratitude. A host mother said, “Your students are awesome. I don’t want to let them go.” “I don’t go back to Japan,” said students. We had a very good time here. Thanks to Woodstock academy, our host family and buddies, every student had a wonderful time. They had an unforgettable experience. This experience helps them develop their own character. I believe this experience leads to world peace.
Thank you very much, Woodstock Academy! We would like to keep in touch with the Woodstock Academy. See you next year.
Without I.S.A. and G.P.I staff, we could not have this exchange students expereince. Thanks a lot.
Also, I want to say to Japanese family that all the students had a wonderful experience. That's because Mrs. Tsushima supports all the students very well. She took good care of students. Maybe Asako will come here again and become a Japanese teacher here. I don’t know whether my boss allow me to.
