On February 18, 2018, Jafore's Multilingual Playgroup was held at Hokkori Heart Demachi.
23 people from Indonesia and Japan participated. Thank you for taking the time to be a part of our playgroup despite the cold rain!
What we did….
*Free play time
*Singing time "Hello to All the Children of the World"
*Counting from one to ten in German
*Story time "Tiga Sahabat Penangkap Bintang" in Indonesian (The Three Star Catchers)
We sang our theme song, "Hello to All the Children of the World" at the opening. The lyrics of this song contains "Hello" in nine languages.
The topic of chatting was "Maternal and Child Health Handbooks" from around the world. Each book was special and unique. It was fun learning that MCH book was first started in Japan and there are so many styles of childbirth and child care in the world.
Before story time, we learned how to count from one to ten in German from a volunteer member of the Kyoto Prefectural University.
