Share our Excitement & Join our Journey

Welcome to the travel blog of Rotary District 5580's Group Study Exchange (GSE) Team which will embark on an exciting five week goodwill / vocational exchange to Nagoya, Japan in November, 2009.

Here, our hybrid American-Canadian team of enthusiastic and adventurous young professionals, along with our lovely, talented and fearless team leader, will share cultural experiences and engage in unique vocational learning opportunities.

If you have come to this site, you are likely: a Rotarian, family member, friend or colleague of one of the team members, or... are just plain blog-curious. Either way, we encourage you to check our site often to learn about us, follow our progress as a team and of course, keep in touch as we explore Japan.

We thank Rotary in advance for the adventure of a life time and to all readers, we invite you to share our excitement and join our journey.

The Last Vocational Visit (by Rosie)

Our last vocational visit was to the Aichi Konan College where about 400 students are enrolled. Their courses range from Interior Design to Nutritional Sciences to Business to Early Childhood Education. They also have an overseas Academic Exchange program with Selkirk College in BC Canada. We enjoyed their comprehensive presentation and tour of the facilities. We met a visiting professor from Canada who has been teaching English for about 1 1/2 years here and we were also able to visit an IT classroom, kitchen and watch the Elementary Education students teach kids about nutrition.
