2014/03/21 ニュース

The Sister City Associations based in both Kobe and Seattle started a new middle school exchange program this year. Today, eight students from Japan arrived in Seattle and will stay until March 30th. They’ll get to do a homestay with a local family and visit local middle schools. I know all the students will make the most out of their stay here!
