This March, Cape welcomed Japanese exchange students for a week. While in the States, these students stayed with Cape families and shadowed students around the school. The exchange students were very excited to come to America and experience our life at school. When asked how long they had been studying English, Kanno Arisa replied, “We have been studying English for four years.” During their time at the school, they participated in the classes and learned what it’s like to be Cape Henlopen student.

The journalism classes got together with the exchange students to have a pizza lunch and ask questions about their life back in Japan and favorite experiences while visiting the United States. During their lunch, Fumito and Arisa both said that “french fries and hamburgers” were their favorite foods. What most of the Japanese students said about America is that everything is bigger – from the buildings to the food portions. The students also talked about the difference between their school and Cape. While Cape covers more land due to having more space, their school – Sendai Nika High School in Miyagi Prefecture – goes up. Their school is seven stories high unlike the two stories at Cape.

The exchange students went to Washington DC, Dover, and New York City, in addition to their stay in Lewes. While on the trip to New York, the students visited Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty and also went shopping in Times Square.

The trip to New York was the final experience for the exchange students trip to America. After the activities in New York, the students returned to Japan – boarding the plane with many wonderful memories and friends from their time spent in America.
