Amundsen Japanese Language Students Participate in Japan Bowl 2019

We are excited to hear that several Amundsen Freshmen in our IB MYP Japanese Language program participated in Japan Bowl at North Central College last Saturday. Japan Bowl is an academic competition for high school students who are studying Japanese across the state of Illinois. Since there was no official competition for Level 1, students participated in the Level 2 practice round this year. They did a great job and already look forward to competing next year. Congratulations to all of the students and to their teacher, Ms. Kameyama, for their hard work and dedication to the study of Japanese language at Amundsen High School. Great job!
