The elementary school students were interested in the differences between Japan and foreign countries. In the class, elementary school students tried to play the traditional games of Vietnam and Sri Lanka. It was great time for all of them, not only elementary school students but also international students. International students are trying to attend international understanding classes to deepen the cross-cultural diversity.
