Japanese Language A Source Of Exposure And Culture Exchange

By a male, in Cheptulu, Kenya
Map of JAPANESE LANGUAGE A SOURCE OF EXPOSURE AND CULTURE EXCHANGE One of the most difficult things for most people is the process of learning a new language. This is due to pronunciation problem as a result of their first language. Another hinderance is the learning of other languages especially foreign languages is the lack of qualified personel to teach the language and also inadequate capital to set up these schools. However since april 2010 Mrs Sawako Nagata of Japanese origin volunteered to teach Japanese language in kobaiteck community at an affordable fee. Though faced with many challenges, the project picked up and some community members joined the school and they are taught Japanese. The course takes three to four months and every day there is a two hour lesson. At the end of it the students are given certificates as a proof of their completion. This has easened the communication barrer between those who learned this language and the tourists who occasionally visit this small area in western kenya. Read more.
