Spring is here. It’s time to start a garden! A few weeks ago, Caitlin and I decided to start a balcony garden, so we went to Homac and bought some garden supplies, like soil and plant pots. We also got some plants while we were there – egg plants, cucumbers, hot peppers, tomatoes, and some herbs. So far, our garden looks O.K, although our tomatoes and cucumbers aren’t doing very well. Unfortunately, Caitlin and I aren’t very good with plants—we don’t have green thumbs. Here are some pictures of our garden. What do you think?
Hello English teachers,
In the workshop on June 11th, we’re going to talk about how to teach English I / II / Reading classes in a student-focused and communicative way which doesn’t require the teacher to spend class time translating into Japanese. We’re going to use the English I book called ELEMENT I, published by Keirinkan. However, the ideas discussed can apply to any textbook, no matter what its level is. The workshop will start at 6:45 p.m. but please try to get there by 6:30 p.m. Due to the earthquake, the place will be at the Shiminkaikan on the corner of Zyozenji Dori and Nishikoen Dori. If you have a copy of Element I, please bring it with you. Hope to see you there.
May 27th is Movie Night at CHEERS.
We will look at many words and phrases from a great film and talk about the main characters before watching it.
We start at 7.30pm on Friday. I hope you can come.
