Japanese students tour Tweed

AN excited group of Japanese students got a taste of Australian culture yesterday after taking part in a bush tour.

The 36 students and three chaperones from the Tohoku Foreign Language College in Sendai, northern Japan are spending a week in the Tweed studying English and getting a taste of the Australian way of life in and out of the classroom.

The students were welcomed to Tweed by Tweed Shire Council mayor Barry Longland on Saturday in a ceremony at the Kingscliff TAFE Campus.

Tweed indigenous bush expert Frank Krasna lead the students on their bush walk yesterday.

This is the tenth year students from Sendai have visited Kingscliff TAFE and they will again be staying with host families throughout the Tweed.

The students will be attending a mix of English language classes, work experience at the Radisson hotel for the hospitality students and a visit to a local Tweed preschool for the child studies students.
