On July 4th 2013, the Japan Foundation London Library was delighted to welcome ten pupils and two teachers from Newstead Wood School. The pupils were all in Year 9 and studying Japanese language.
The Library and Resources Officer, Miho Takamura, told the pupils all about the library, using simple Japanese words such as hon (book) and shinbun (newspaper). Pupils were then invited to explore the library themselves. The manga section proved particularly popular! Pupils also enjoyed making their own purikura mini photos, using the purikura activity on Japan Foundation’s Erin’s Challenge! I Can Speak Japanese website.
The library is open to all members of the public who wish to use its resources for Japanese language study. For further details on how to join and the types of membership available, please click here. The library will be open as usual throughout the school summer holidays, so please come and visit!
Finally, we’d like to thank the teachers and pupils of Newstead Wood School for visiting us – arigatou gozaimashita!
If you are interested in organising a library tour for your pupils, please contact the Japan Foundation Library at email@example.com for more information.
