In the summer of 2018, several Japanese children came to Tsukuba International Christian Assembly* for an English camp where they had the chance to take part in fun activities while learning English. Their parents sent them to the camp because they believed that learning English would help their children in life.**
One day, after playing some fun group games, Erin McCoin noticed that several of the kids seemed upset.
“Is everything alright? Are you okay?” she asked one young boy. Let’s call him Kosei.
“I’m not good,” Kosei responded with tears. “I’m not good.” He was upset because he hadn’t won the game.
