JAPANESE STUDENTS TO LEARN AT TWU

Thirty-three students and two professors from Mukogawa Women’s University in Japan will spend two weeks, beginning Feb. 27, at TWU learning English and absorbing American culture as part of the Living America Program.

During their stay, the students will spend their mornings in class and their afternoons practicing English with tutors. The students also will visit churches, shop at Stonebriar Mall in Frisco and the Galleria in Dallas, visit the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth and spend time with American families during their stay.

“The Living America Program at TWU has been popular with Japanese students for many years,” said Dr. Hugh Burns, chair of the TWU Department of English, Speech and Foreign Languages. “It’s always a pleasure to host them.”

After leaving Denton the students will visit Disney World in Orlando, Fla., before returning home.

Mukogawa Women’s University is located in Nishinomiya, Japan.
