Elementary School Student Interview

The words from the Bible are amazing!

Grade 3 Riku Nakato

I think I am pretty good at English. But there are lots of foreign kids who are better than me, so they keep challenging me to learn more.
I was intrigued by what I learned from my teacher about the Bible one day. Just simply, "always think of others before yourself". That is the kind of heart I want to have.

English is fun when I can learn it
by moving my body!

Grade 4 Sakura Arimoto
Grade 3 Rintaro Arimoto

We love Mr. Rohrer, our English teacher. During class, we sometimes hide under desks and play games. This is a fun way to learn English! I have never struggled with English and I look forward to learning more! My younger brother, Rintaro, had a hard time with math in first grade, but now he gets 100% on every test!
