JASSW will hold a training workshop for 2 JIS programs: 


Japan in a Suitcase (JS): Taro & Hanako

This presentation follows a Japanese third grader named Taro through his day in school.  Students will have the opportunity to learn how to use chopsticks, speak some simple Japanese phrases, see textbooks Taro uses in class.  Hanako is a separate presentation following an eight grader.

Japanese Language and Culture Visits (JLCV):  

Customs, Shopping, Restaurant

These presentations give high school Japanese language students an opportunity for Japanese immersion in "real life" situations, using the skills they have learned in class.If you are a new volunteer, or have been away for awhile, please come to train in our new, updated presentations.
