We held our Pre-Departure Orientation at the Japanese Cultural Assocation of Manitoba. JET Prairie alumni gave presentations on a variety of aspects of Japanese life (e.g. What to bring to Japan, ideal Japanese learning materials, how to get involved with the community, driving in Japan, etc.). We answered any questions the new JETs asked us.
Next is our JET Prairie Cooking Night and Karaoke Send-Off for our new JET participants on July 21st. Also, some of our alumni will have a table setup at this year’s Ai-Kon Convention on July 27th-29th. If you’re alumni and want to hang out with us, let us know!
And of course, good luck Japan in the World Cup. 🙂
