Students from the Japanese language (JPN 4001) class recently had the first-ever virtual cultural exchange program with students from the Miyazaki Senior Commercial High School located in Japan. The sessions saw students from the two institutions learn more about their respective countries, and for the USIU-Africa students, presented a chance to learn and practice the Japanese language.

The five students, Kena Wandia, Kelvin Chepkwony, Hannah Ketrah, Baraka Munene, and Theresa Wahu, have so far taken part in two interactive sessions, held in September and November, in which they held exchanges on some of the unique aspects of Kenya and the Miyazaki prefecture in Japan.

The second session, held on November 17 was covered by several outlets, including two TV stations, MRT and UMK, and an online platform, Yahoo Japan, one of the most visited news sites in Japan. The next session will be held in February 2021.
