About The Group

BeGlobal Foundation was proud to host another Chubu Junior FIT group in Gresham, Oregon in Spring 2016! This was our 2nd Chubu Junior group and 28 studious middle and high school students from the Chubu Region of Japan joined the program. This group was able to enjoy spending time with their host families celebrating the American Easter holiday together and take wonderful educational ESL classes with our terrific ESL teacher, Rebecca Moyer, and go on afternoon adventures around the Portland Metro Area.

The Chubur JR FIT group got to take a quick tour of the Adidas U.S. Headquarters campus up in North Portland. One of the big highlight to go to Adidas is the access to the Adidas Employee Discount Store. With 28 students plus local Conversation Buddies in our group the Employee Discount Store looked like a Black Friday Shopping event!

Our marvelous ESL teachers taught a section all about restaurants and American table manners to our young Japanese students. As a whole group, they got to create a cultural exchange gallery where students worked together to present to others what their favorite American and Japanese foods are.
