Just Japan Podcast 191: Japanese Versus International Schools

In JJP 191, host Kevin O’Shea chats with the podcast’s youngest guest, 8-year-old Kai (the host’s son) about his experiences as a young student in Japanese elementary school versus an international school. Kai completed kindergarten and one semester of Grade One in Japan. He just finished his Grade One year at a large IB/PYP international school in Beijing. What are the differences in the eyes of a kid? What did he like about each school and how do they compare?
