Sometimes, Japanese people contact me and ask if they can volunteer at Step Up Japanese.
I’m always very happy that Japanese people in Brighton and Hove have found my school and want to visit and help out.
This year, a number of Japanese volunteers have helped out in class and with events and workshops.
This Volunteers Week, I’d like to say a big thank you to my 2018-19 volunteers!
Aria-san, who came to help out with Summer Programmes in 2018. Thank you for playing games with my students and teaching them how to say ホットドッグ (hotto doggu; hot dog):
Mari-san, for chatting with STEP 1 and STEP 2 students and encouraging them to speak with confidence:
And Saya-san, for teaching us incredible origami!
