こんにちは Konnichiwa, 

 

 

By gaining an appreciation of another culture and language we learn to understand our own language more fully.  Research has shown that learning other languages assists children to develop flexible and creative thought patterns.  With this in mind, all students Prep to Yr 6 are introduced to an activity-based Japanese program.
