There is a long way to go.

The other day, I took part in an open English convo. I hadn't seen some of our members in a while because of their schedules, but finally they were able to make it. I was glad to see them.

Well, during the convo, we enjoyed small talk and caught up on each other. I am always saying, but let me say this again: I was teed off by my poor English. I fully realized that I should improve my vocabulary and use what I learn. I should slog at brushing up on my English.

11月スケジュール ~~マムズ~~

These are our upcoming English meetings.

Day and Time: 8th and 22nd November 10:00~12:00

Participation Fee: ¥500 a participant (Due to the fact there will be a native English speaker attending. When there is no guest speaker, the fee is normally¥200 a person.)

Place: In Onojo city, Fukuoka. Onojo North Community Center, Meeting Room1 (2F)

We have been endeavoring to improve our English. We discuss the topic or article prepared by a leader. (We alternate the leader each session.)

That was interesting!

As I mentioned before, I gave my own English lesson at my son's junior high school yesterday. As you can easily imagine, I was a wee bit nervous, but my cowardice was blown away when I entered the classroom. Many students said to me, "Hello!" or "I'm so excited to listen to your lesson." What wonderful students they are! Thanks to them, I calmed down and put myself together. lol
On top of that, there was a substitute homeroom teacher and he was so funny. His character made me more relaxed.

At the beginning of the lesson, we did warm-up activities. These activities made me revved up lol
Throughout the lesson, I enjoyed a whole lot and gave my own lesson as planned.

I hope someone might be inspired or this lesson might motivate them to chart their own courses. ;)

Love you, Grandpa!

I took my parents to our family grave. It's in the middle of the season called Higan or the equinoctical week. During the week, we have a custom that we visit our family graves and pray. Lately, not everyone has visited, though....

As I had expected, a lot of cars were crawling along the street, bumber to bumper.

Anyway, we cleaned, put some flowers and incense sticks on the grave. I love my grandpa, who passed away on my second birthday. I was too young to remember how much he loved me, but I always feel that he's beside me.
Grandpa, I do love you!

I'll give an English lesson at my son's school.

I regularly visit my son's junior high school, juggling work and chores. I manage to make time although I have a lot of irons in the fire.


To help junior high schoolers learn English, listening skills in particular.
This is a crush course and the students I help every week are in their third year of junior high school.
Actually, I don't teach English because there is an English teacher at the school gives the lessons. I usually help the students, but I will give my own lesson next week because the teacher is going away on business. That sounds interesting, isn't it? My experience in teaching English will go a long way towards the lesson.
I have already planned what to do during the lesson. The only thing that I am a little worried about is if the students will be interested in or not. I had framed the lesson plan to ignite their curiosity, of course, but I am not sure if the idea will work

Anyway, the only thing I should do is have fun, isn't it?
