It's amazing how much you can say when you and your guests are struggling with each other's language.

Japan is a long way away from Sherwood. It's on the other side of the Pacific Ocean. Japan is practically on the other side of the planet Earth! You can look at Japan on an Internet webcam. It's almost Noon in Japan when the Sun is setting in Oregon.

The Japanese were very hard to talk to, but we all kept smiling. I was glad that they knew how to speak some English. The Japanese are very polite. If you spoke Japanese, you would have to learn many different ways to say something, just to make sure you don't hurt someone's feelings.

The Japanese students were very nice and they came to learn about how young people in America volunteer to help their community. They were here for two weeks and they served meals to senior citizens, planted seeds for butterflies, worked at the Fire Department, and Music on the Green. They learned about American History and Culture. I wish we could go to Japan and do the same thing.

They were Japanese, not Chinese. I did not try to find out if they knew tikwando. I would have landed on the ground face up if I had tried to hit them! My favorite thing to teach them was this: The Northwest Passage.
You must look up that phrase.

The Japanese don't care if we learn Japanese. They were trying very hard to learn English. We should do that too. All of us should learn to speak more than one language.

Lilly Morgen said...

We showed a power point show of pictures to get our messages across and then we showed them things. It worked out pretty well.

Did you know that in 1914, four families of Japanese came to Sherwood for the first time? They cam to grow vegetables to sell in Portland.

Chinese people came before that in 1896-1898 to build the railroad.
