English Farm May 02 copy

Invitation to join our “English Farm” Programme.
Let’s enjoy learning English and Life with Agriculture!
The theme for the coming programme is “LIF E AT (LIFE+EAT)” .
It is a 3-day programme of English and Agriculture, especially with pigs as we continue from our last programme.
We are going to observe slaughtered pig meat, experience slaughtering, and finally eat delicious fresh pork.
We do not usually think deeply about “Life” and “Eating”, but these are the most important things in our lives. Let’s learn together with our pig farm staff Jil.
You can also enjoy communicating with participants from 15 different countries during each meal and morning/evening foodlife work.
It is a programme for all ages, and you can enjoy even if you find it difficult to speak English.
We wait for your application!
