International students from Central Washington University visit 5th graders to discuss school life in Japan and Taiwan. Yuka Yoshimura and Szu Chin Chen taught KSD 5th graders basic conversational greetings in Japanese and Mandarine Chinese. Students had an opportunity to ask questions about school uniforms, academic expectations and the differences between school in Japan and Taiwan and Kittitas. 

Yuka and Szu Chin dressed in traditional clothing and brought souvenir's from their home county to pass around during their presentation. 

" As an international student, I love meeting children from Kittitas," said Szu Chin during her presentation.  "One of my favorite things about living and going to school in Kittitas County is the friendly people and cultural inclusivity. If I can help others learn about my county while they help me practice my English and learn about American life- then it is a win win for everyone."
