When the Japanese students came to Passmores in March 2014, I was paired with a 17 year-old girl named Ryoko. While she was visiting the school we did many activities together such as cooking where she taught us to cook two traditional Japanese dishes and we taught them how to make scones. Not only this but made presentations to the whole group about England and our traditions and they made a presentation about Japan and their school. I found this a really valuable learning experience as it opened my eyes to other cultures around the world.
