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24回: 子どもの英語学習法 & 親子英会話 (4) 
( 掲載日: 2014.8.6 )

みなさんこんにちは !
もう8月、夏本番ですね。
私は先週生まれて初めての夏バテとやらを経験しました。(笑)
1年中夏のシンガポールで育ったので夏バテとは無縁だったのですが…
ちょっと日本人になれた気がして、嬉しかったです。(笑)
みなさんも充分に水分をとって、気をつけてくださいね。

そんな中、とりあえず夏っぽいことをしておこうと思って、浴衣を着て花火大会に行ってきました !
私はお花見の時も、花火大会の時も、どんな時でも花より団子でずっと買い食いしているのですが(笑)
やっぱり花火が始まると手が止まってしまいますね。

シンガポールは実際に火を使う爆竹や花火が禁止されています。
国立記念日の日だけ、花火が打ち上げられるのですが、もちろん手持ち花火も売っていないし…

オーストラリアの花火もきれいなのですが、
繊細な花火本来の美しさを映し出せるのは日本だけだなぁと思ったものです。

なので私にとって日本の花火は特別。

花火が打ち上げられてみんなで拍手を送るというのは、日本特有の美しい文化だと思います。
蒸し暑くて外に出るのが億劫になりますが、他国に誇れるこんな素晴らしい文化、
いつまでも大切にしていきたいですね。


さて、今回はまた親子英会話に戻って、『注意する』 時のフレーズをいくつかご紹介していきます。
