Some classes at the Brewer Middle School had a few extra students Tuesday.Japanese college students from the Hirosaki School are in Maine as part of a three week program, through the University of Maine’s Intensive Languages Institute.Tuesday, some of those students were shadowing kids from the Brewer Middle School.The Japanese students took part in math, english, science and other classes.The american students are happy to have them in their classroom.And the exchange students say there are some differences in our school system compared to theirs.”The students say many things here. But in Japan it’s very quiet.””It’s been really fun getting to see all these different things and their facial expressions to the things we do rather than how it might be where they live.”The students have been staying with host families here.They say they plan to keep in touch with the people they’ve met.
