Japanese Language Assistant – seeking your help for homestay accommodation

We are pleased to announce that our new Japanese Language Assistant – Chika has arrived and will be with us throughout 2017. We are very privileged to be able to participate in the Language Assistant Scheme. However, we do need to be able to provide Homestay accommodation for our assistants throughout their time of stay. At the moment we do not have the full year of accommodation mapped out for Chika. Would you please let us know if you can assist us by being able to host Chika for a period of time. It probably works best if we can work in half-term blocks of around 5-6 weeks. We urgently require someone to be able to host Chika for the second half of this term. Please consider this opportunity, particularly if you have a son or daughter who may be considering the learning of Japanese through the Senior School years. If you would like further information or register your interest in hosting Chika, we invite you to be in touch with us via email at principal@navigator.sa.edu.au

img_3868-1Hello, my name is Chika Muraguchi. I’m working at Navigator College as a Japanese Language Assistant Teacher. I was born in Tottori, near Kobe and I am 21 years old. I have been living in Kobe for 3 years to attend University, where I am studying economics. Also in Japan, I studied to get a Japanese teaching license and I hope to become a teacher after I return to Japan.

My hobby is running, swimming and snowboarding. This one year will be special and challenging year for me and I want to have a special life with beautiful host families! I’m really looking forward to seeing amazing families
