Older Students as both Teachers and Learners

Date and Time: Sunday, 27 March 2011 – 10:00am – 11:30am
Speaker: Tadashi Ishida
The presenter will discuss how a social educational organization called PEACE has helped promote international understanding and intercultural communication between Japanese and non-Japanese people through the medium of English. He will also report on PEACE’s activities, including demonstrations of calligraphy, the tea ceremony and how to put on a kimono, as well as musical performances using Japanese musical instruments, and a program that matches up non-Japanese visitors with volunteer tour guides. The presentation will end with a case study illustrating what happened at a festival where international students from Waseda University carried a portable shrine with the help of residents of a downtown Tokyo community.
This is a co-sponsored event held in conjunction with the West Tokyo Chapter.
