Apr. 25, Tanka reading and Origami at another young class in ECOLE JEAN GROU

Apr. 25, I presented easy bilingual tanka to about 30 students in the younger class at ECOLE JEAN GROU. It was a different class from the one I interacted yesterday.

It must have been their first experience to hear 5-7 syllables meter. They were listening my presentation very carefully.
After listening tanka reading, we had fun with Origami. Due to the school rule, I cannot show their lovely faces.
