Dear ESS members,
It's been for a while since I last participated in the weekly activities of the Kyoto NHK ESS Club...I am worried that most of you have already forgotten my face. Could you forgive me for my recent lazy attitude?
Today, I am texting to you as the Practicing planner on March 18th.
Because I am heading to Washington, D.C. in a couple of days and return to Kyoto just a few days before the Practice day, please let me give you a brief announcement now even though it seems too early.
Date: 18th March
Genre: creative thinking and presentation
Title: Intercultural Events Planner
1. Make groups as usual
2. Imagine you are working at a university as a planner of intercultural events for local students and international students. Your task is making unique opportunities for students to find friendship beyond nationalities and various cultural backgrounds. (Ex. Monday's lunch break chat event, special hiking event on Sunday) You have about 20 minutes to plan an event and make a poster.
3. Show the poster to your group members and make a short presentation about the event. Then, select the best plan in your group.
Furthermore, I'd love to talk about what I will have learned and experienced in the United States.
Thank you very much as always and I am looking forward to seeing you.
(Btw, my 20th birthday is 9th March. It means finally I will join the ESS club activity as an adult!! The first day I joined you was just a week before my 17th birthday…How fast three years has gone!!!!)
