Japanese students visit ACU, study American culture

For immediate release
Feb. 17, 2004

Students from Shin-Ai Women's College in Kjurume, Japan, arrived at Abilene Christian University Monday to spend more than two weeks getting a first-hand look at American culture.

The students will take a special American culture course in the mornings and English conversation classes in the afternoon.

Each evening and on the weekends they will participate in recreational and educational activities hosted by a group of ACU students and staff members.

ACU hosted students from Shin-Ai five consecutive years, the last time in the spring of 2001. This is the first time since the events of September 11, 2001, for ACU to host a similar group from Shin-Ai.

The instructors are Laura Blake, adjunct instructor in ESL, and Amy Doughty, graduate student in missions. The director of the program is Carolyn Thompson, director of the Institute of Intensive English and instructor in the Department of Foreign Languages.
