今週の水曜日、帝京大ダラム分校生たちが日本へ帰国の途につきました。4月からの約6ヶ月間、ダラムで生きた英語を学び、様々な活動を通して大きく成長しました。夏休み中、イギリス各地の語学学校で学んだ以外にも、バルセロナへの研修旅行、ダラム大学スポーツ大会への参加、地元の子供たちとの文化交流など、思い出はつきません。そしてダラム分校では、今週後半に秋期生を迎えます。両者とも無事のフライトを祈っています!

On Wednesday this week, we say farewell to our latest group of Teikyo students as they make the long journey home to Japan. They arrived in April and have been studying English at Teikyo in Durham for the last six months. Whilst in Durham, students have attended English classes during the week, practised English with their friends in colleges and have been involved in a variety of further cultural and language placements which have helped every one of them improve their English during their time here. Recently students have returned from five week language school placements in various cities across the country.

Further highlights from the last six months have included: trips to London, Barcelona, York, Newcastle and other UK cities; representing Teikyo in the Durham University College Festival of Sport; completing a 5km run in Durham City centre alongside thousands of others and teaching Japanese culture to children, students and adults at a variety of events. We wish the returning group a safe journey home and all the best for the resumption of their studies in Japan. Later this week we will be welcoming the next group who will be with us until February 2018.
