Shizuoka Speaks

Conversations about language learning & culture in Shizuoka City, Japan

Posted on | May 15, 2011 | 16 Comments

We’ve talked with foreign students who are studying Japanese in Shizuoka City and heard about how students from different countries learn. But what’s life like for bicultural students studying in Japanese public schools? How do they find balance with their two cultures while living and studying in Shizuoka City?

    Interesting program. As the father of a bi-cultural Japanese national its insightful what my son may face if/when we return to Japan.

    A great audio series. I hope these recording are kept online for several years to come.

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

    Can I just say what a relief to find somebody who actually is aware of what theyre talking about on the internet. You positively know how to carry a problem to gentle and make it important. Extra individuals need to learn this and understand this aspect of the story. I cant imagine youre not more in style because you definitely have the gift.

    I think I could disagree with the main ideas. I won’t share it with my friends.. You should think of other ways to express your ideas.
