Currently there are 95 registered interpretation and translation volunteers at the Oita International Plaza(speaking a total of 13 languages), and 38 registered Japanese volunteers.

 

In July, we held a Skill Up Workshop for them.

For our first workshop this year, our lecturer was Atsuko Sugimoto, who is an “Simple Japanese” volunteer and who taught our workshop participants how to use simple Japanese to support foreigners in Japan during times of crisis.

The event took place on 2nd July from 14:00 to 16:50, in a meeting room on the fourth floor of the iichiko Culture Center.

Durig the Work Shop, everyone split into six groups, each group with a mix of Japanese and foreign group members.

They studied large hazard maps laid out on each table, and worked out which emergency shelters people should go to a disaster happen, and so on.
