Mapo Youth Culture Center
Yesterday we did the first activity of Pangaea in a youth center which had just opened in March in Mapo, Seoul. We expected 25 people, but 80 people gathered there. Sophia from MIZY center acted as FL, and she was joined by 7 newly trained people. We had a great fun in the activity. Especially Sophia's leadership was very successful in circle time. When I saw that the circle time was carried on with everyone communication with each other, I realized that Pangaea had been developing apart from the headquarters in Japan. There were several children who were interested in learning Japanese. They spoke to us "Hello (Konnichiwa)" in Japanese. On a map which 5th grade student loved(='I Love Map'), a book was drawn and some Japanese characters (A, I, U, E, O etc.) were written on it. On a fist day, as always, a new FL feels exhausted after an activity because they get so exited and haven’t gotten used to it, but it is a satisfactory tiredness.
