Ramadan / ラマダン
Do you know about Ramadan? Ramadan is a very special time for Muslims. Muslims are people who follow Islam. Ramadan is one month in the Islamic calendar. It is a month when Muslims fast - they don't eat anything or drink anything all day. Even water is not allowed. They do this in order to become closer to God. They also usually do more charity work in this time.
This year at FGS we have 2 Muslim students. They will start Ramadan on May 17th and finish on June 16th. It's a little hard but it's very important for Muslims. If you want to know more about Ramadan or Islam please ask our exchange students, or come read the books about Ramadan in the Language Centre.
