Hi! “Santa Clauses” Katrina and Georgia prepared some fun Christmas activities for our last English Village of this semester!
Here are some season’s greetings from Katrina:
We wanted to thank everyone who came to our last English Village for this semester. We had a lot of fun talking with you about the upcoming winter holidays. I hope everyone will get their wishes fulfilled, and that you will enjoy a wonderful turkey, or KFC, dinner and Christmas Cake.
If you’re in the mood to explore, try finding places in Japan that serve some other traditional Christmas foods/drinks. Here are a few suggestions:
Drinks: Eggnog, Apple Cider, Mulled Wine Desserts: Gingerbread, Fruitcake, Christmas Pudding
Foods: Mince Pie, Stuffing, Christmas Ham, Cranberry sauce
We hope that you all have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
10th Friday English Village: December 1, 2017
Malaurie prepared some very interesting discussion questions for the last Friday English Village this semester!
A message from Malaurie:
Thank you everyone who took the time to come and share thoughts in English. This time we talked about people that inspire us, from a senior in the tennis club to Steve Jobs, but also an elementary school English teacher, a you tuber or an actress with the starting sentence “I feel inspired by ….” . Also, we played a brain game about cities around the world. I had a wonderful time speaking with different students. It’s not easy to come forward and get yourself out of your safe zone to speak in a foreign language. So I really encourage you all to keep trying. The more you try, the more this ‘challenge’ zone will become like your ‘safe’ zone! Pay attention to the English around you!
Great thanks to the Andersons and Malaurie for preparing enjoyable experiences for our students!
We look forward to seeing you all at English Village next academic year! Let’s have fun in English!
Mary Aruga, Mayor of English Village
