5th Thursday English Village: October 19, 2017
Hi! Please check Katrina’s special announcement about Halloween!
We had a lot of fun this last English Village learning new words and terms. Have you heard the term sales pitch? Do you have a similar term in Japanese? What about the words aquaponics, acidity, volcanic, rotation? Can you guess the general topic we were discussing from these words?
Next week is Halloween at the English Village! Are you curious about the origin of this holiday that’s becoming popular in Japan? If so drop by next week for a Halloween special English Village.
5th Friday English Village: October 20, 2017
A message from Malaurie:
We talked about school’ festivals, exchanging different experiences, who is charge of what*, how it’s usually organized, and what makes a school festival special or fun. Also, we tried to explain Japanese words like koyasai and gakkyuin so we could understand the different perceptions in different cultures, as in France we don’t have a “school festival” like in Japan and as the student council has a bit different job. At the end, we played Pictionary, trying to make other people guess the words on the list each one had! But we wondered what a “fruit roll-up” was!
* who is in charge of what – 担当者
We look forward to seeing you on Thursdays or Fridays!
Mary Aruga, Mayor of English Village
