Japanese Word of the Week

We are excited to launch a new initiative that provides an engaging focus on Japanese studies at Rivermount College. The ‘Japanese Word of the Week’ is brought to you by Mrs Kath Kirkpatrick, known affectionately to our students as Sensei. Each week, Sensei will share a special Japanese word along with its meaning and significance. Remember to check back each week to view the new video presentation.
