4th Thursday English Village: October 12, 2017
Hi! It was great to see so many smiling faces at English Village today!
Here is a message from Georgia:
This week Michael came to the English village with me. In Japanese we would casually say 久しぶり. In English we say “long time no see”. Next week we will play a new game: Celebrity Quiz. Draw a random card from the box and tell us about the Japanese celebrity you drew. We will draw Western celebrities. It promises to be a fun conversational game.
4th Friday English Village: October 13, 2017
金曜日の後期第4回目の英語村を開催しました。It was Friday, the 13th, but all went well!
We talked about winter holidays and what kind of events there are. Unexpectedly, we ended up exchanging a lot about part-time jobs as it’s a great opportunity to do them for some students and about the Coming-of-Age ceremony* as it’s sometimes at the end of the holiday. We finished with a guessing game. Everyone had other people guess the words on their list with hints in English or gestures.
* Coming-of-Age ceremony – 成人式
We look forward to seeing you on Thursdays or Fridays!
Mary Aruga, Mayor of English Village
