English Joke

   The word 'chores' came up in our English Cafe class yesterday, and none of the class members knew the meaning.

   After teaching them that it referred to household jobs such as washing dishes, doing laundry etc I took the opportunity to teach them a joke:

   Dad: Have you finished your chores?

   Son: What chores?

   Dad: Thank you very much I'll have another pint!

      Do you get? Maybe I can put it to good use at the forthcoming Craft Beer festival in Takadanobaba

 

  Oh, by the way. Mines a glass (or two) of beer!

That's Chopin

  These pamphets found their way to us last week from Chiiku Lab and look a little interesting.

  A classical concert will be held at the Roppomgi K concert Salon on June 2nd, featuringYoshihiro Kondo on piano, Hajime Otomo on cello, Yuko Higuchi dancing and of NHK children's English fame, Eric Jacobsen.

  Apparently when Eric isn't busy performing at English events (see his Hi Eric site) he also has a grown up band The Eric Jacobsen Band.

  More details of the classical concert can be found on the Confetti websiteEnglish Here, Japanese here.

   Made this sign to remind our younger elementary students not to use their mamorino or kidsphone during class time! Not only does it disturb the lesson but they are more than likely calling mum; who then wonders why her child is calling her during their English lesson. Double trouble!!

Shopping Mall

  This was part of a project bringing time expressions, actions and shop vocabulary together as part of the MacMillan English coursebook.

  I was impressed with how the children who took part in this project used the language they had studied over several months to come up with their own ideas. We'll definitely be doing more of this kind of work during 2018.

  Unfortunately I forgot to give this particular work back before the boy and his family relocated to the north of Japan. Sorry!

Papabubble

  Recevied these brightly coloured candies as a thank you present from two of my students, K & R.

  I was intrigued to find out more about them as I hadn't seen anything like them before, turns out they are from a Spanish company called papabubble.

  Will have to take a trip to one of their Tokyo shops soon!

Student Gallery

  I have added a new page added to the englishpool website, it is intended to be a gallery of students written/presentation work.

  The first images are from work completed just before the Spring break by our Elementary A students, featuring their favourite animals.

  I was so proud of what they achieved that I wanted to share it. Great work children!

  You can take a look by clicking here.

What's Tomica in English?

 I was asked a few weeks ago by a mother and son, who are relocating to the UK soon, "What's Tomica in English?"

 As someone who grew up in the 1970s my first thought was Matchbox cars..we call them Matchbox cars...but hang on didn't they change to Corgi during my childhood...and then again are Corgi cars still in production?

 Seems the best answer I could finally come up with was "Toy cars, we call them toy cars."

 For those who don't know Tomica here's a link to their English site, www.takaratomy.co.jp/english/products/tomica/index.html
