Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

Howden School Japanese Day

Region: 
Yorkshire and the Humber

Routes into Languages supported Howden School’s Japanese Day on 17th April 2015.

The sessions organised by Routes were part of a whole day of events arranged by the school to give pupils a real taste of Japan. A native Japanese speaker attended the event, giving students the opportunity to experience the language and culture first hand.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience, commenting that it is interesting to see how different cultures operate. One student said that “learning languages is fun and awesome”, which is something that we always love to hear!
