The Department of English and American Studies Spring Excursion

2010年6月8日(国際学部 英米語学科)

On May 15th the first year students gathered near the front gate to make preparations for a day long excursion into the local countryside. The weather was clear and dry as we all loaded up the buses for a thirty-minute trip to Yamabiko No Sato. Students and teachers were full of anticipation about what the day would bring as the bus went deeper and deeper into the countryside. We finally arrived and found that the area selected for the excursion was quiet and beautiful. Teachers organized the students into groups and begin preparing quiz questions for the afternoon English Quiz Contest. At noon, we finished our preparations for the afternoon activities and fired up the burners to begin preparing for a BBQ lunch. Food was passed out to each group and we began cooking on the grills. Everyone was happy, because the wind was a bit cold and the fire helped warm everyone up. After lunch we all participated in the English Quiz Contest prepared by each group. We finished the day by singing an English song accompanied by two guitarists and senior students who came along to help with the event. Everyone seemed to enjoy the excursion!
