This was the first lesson with Vlada. At first I could not catch his request for contact because of my bad condition of Skype. Looking for FAQ, I finally found the way how to contact a teacher not on my contact list. There's a skype name on my booking list! So I gave a call to Vlada and we were able to start our lesson at last although I still faced a trouble about screen sharing. Vlada patiently waited for solving my skype troubles and corrected my English e-mail quickly. In spite of his photo, he is very frank and friendly teacher;-) He kindly supplemented our lesson with extra time for introducing ourselves. Thank you, Vlada. See you soon!

Tonight we talked about Fukuoka that CNN took up as a most innovative city in Japan. The head offices of big companies are in Tokyo. We have to create innovative cities in local areas in order to invite young people. From that viewpoint, I will pay proper attention to the future of Fukuoka.

After a small talk about our weekend, we discussed inequality of income in the world with an article about it. Under the present world situation like inauguration of Trump and hard Brexit, I have a strong interest in this topic. Frou suggested me a good topic at the right time. We talked about a relation between inequality and happiness, social change and inequality, present Japanese and Filipino income situation, factors on modern Japanese historical change of inequality, AI & robotics's future influence to unemployment, etc. I proposed to talk more about this topic and she said she would give me another related article in near future. Thank you for always giving me an interesting topic, Frou. See you soon. Take care!

Today we read an article about reindeer situation. It says reindeer are having a hard time to getting their food in colder winter and get pregnant earlier, which leads to smaller, weaker reindeers. This is all the effect of human-made climate change. That's sad reality but every single one of us should think about what we can do to stop it. I appreciate this kind of articles, which promote our awareness about the serioue issue we are facing. I like this article,, thank you Max!

Today we talked about how British people spend their Christmas and New Year Holidays. It was interesting as I have learned a lot from Kathryn. Then I asked about riding a bike in England. I had a good time talking with her.

It was very nice talking with you, see you next time ! :D Andrew is a very nice teacher with a very clear british accent, which is easy to catch. Beginners who had started learning English by the American accentmight find that slightly hard to understand, but I am sure that you'll be used to it very easily. Nowdays, even the English tests popular in Japan like the Eiken, requires people to be able to catch, understand, and find the right information from every accents. Which means, every people learning English needs to be used to every popular accents. I recommend you all to try his lesson. He taught me about the collocations today. I'm not very good at those stuff, but his explanation of that was tremendously easy to understand.

バイリンガールひとみの海外教育(生活)体験記/イメージ・バナー2


第22回: 子どもの英語学習法 & 親子英会話 (3) 
( 掲載日: 2014.7.9 )

Happy July!

もう1年の半分が終わってしまいました。早いですね〜。
小学生の頃、毎年この時期が来るとワクワクしていた事を覚えています。
そう、夏休み☆
毎年日本に一時帰国していたのですが、父方の祖父母が千葉 、母方の祖父母が福岡、母の姉が川崎だったので、
1ヶ月で3ヶ所、大荷物を抱えて民族大移動していました。笑

生徒さんの中にも何人か海外に住んでいらっしゃる方が、夏休み日本に一時帰国するんですと、
とても嬉しそうに教えてくださいました。

気持ち、とってもよく分かります。

私は日本に帰ってきて1年半になりますが、今でも海外に住んでたまに日本に帰ってくる、という生活の方が性に
合っているようで、海外生活が恋しい今日この頃です。

7月7日は ”The Star Festival” – 七夕でしたね !
皆さんはお願い事されましたか?
私は日付が変わるギリギリにいくつかばーっと書いていたら、
願い事は1つしかだめなんだよ ! というご指摘を受け…
小学生の頃は「犬がほしいです」や「英語が上手になりますように」と可愛らしいお願いをしていたものの、
この歳になると欲が…笑

という事で、今年のお願いごと。

謙虚になれますように。笑
