Takasaki FIT Summer- Spokane

Takasaki FIT 2

About The Group

The Takasaki FIT program was one of our very first and successful Summer short-term program in Spokane, Washington. 10 students from Japan visited for 10 days in August of 2015. ESL classes were held every morning at Gonzaga University and they attended field trips in the afternoons utilizing what they learned in class. Some of the activities included solving puzzles at the Mobius Science Center, hiking and learning about nature at Manito Park and Botanical Gardens, and picking berries and peaches at the Hansen's Orchards in Green Bluff.
