This is July 4th weekend in the US. This holiday is definitely a one of the very exciting events for Japanese au pairs as well.
As a foreign national, learning about another culture and history is important. The one of the core purposes of the J-1 VISA program is definitely teaching foreign nationals with American culture and have them like the country.
The United States’ Independence Day has many interesting activities such as music concerts, fireworks, and of course parties. There is also family events such as doing a BBQ party. There are many things for Japanese au pairs to learn through enjoying themselves.
I am looking forward to hearing from my au pairs who are already in the U.S. on what they did and how they felt about the holiday.
Thank you so much for giving them great opportunities to learning about the U.S. culture.
Have a wonderful July 4th weekend!
