Radio Station at the “Jongeren Cultuurhuiskanaleneiland”
Yuka and I participated in a radio show that young girls in the community prepare and host every thursday. The club was designed for children to practise speaking and listening skills and to also enhance their confidence through a fun medium. This club also offers a skill that isn’t available to most children; giving them the opportunity to practise a new skill from a young age.
The girls interviewed us about the topics they had outlined for the show. They also asked us questions about ourselves and the countries we come from. They practised speaking English and Japanese (and were very good at both)!
It was wonderful to see that they were so excited and enthusiastic about us being involved in their show. Yuka and I were glad that we could help by being guests and it was a lot of fun!
