Princeton in Ishikawa (PII)

On Wednesday, July 10, 2019, 31 students were welcomed to the school through the “Princeton in Ishikawa” (PII) program, a program held every year which allows foreign students to get together with high school students in Kanazawa. This year, the 1st and 2nd year students were able to partake in activities with the foreign exchange students.
The 1st year students talked about the “Regional Revitalization Project” that they are currently working on. It was necessary for the students to use difficult words and phrases in describing their work in the project, so it was sometimes quite a struggle to report the content of their research. Nevertheless, they managed to explain the details and get some feedback.
The 2nd year students conducted exchanges with the theme of “Speaking about one’s culture in another language.” For the guest students who had studied the Japanese language, it was an opportunity to talk about their culture using Japanese. For Fuzoku students, it was a chance to explain Japanese culture in English.
It was a very meaningful experience for all involved.
