Penfriends in Serbia

  Towards the end of last year students in our Elementary B classes worked on writing letters to exchange through the Cambridge Penfriends system. We were matched with the Busy Bee Centre for Foreign Languages in Novi Sad, Serbia, and agreed to base the topic around sports. 

  Busy Bee decided to actually post their letters to us (rather than scan and e-mail them) so it was a huge surprise when we opened the package from Serbia. Inside were twelve beautifully written letters, all in their own envelopes and with some of them containing little gifts of stickers, balloons and other items.

  It was such a pleasure to see the efforts the children in Serbia went to, that the next time we swap letters we might have to raise the bar on our won efforts!

  I have posted the letters our children sent to Serbia over on the gallery page, enjoy!

Vintage Teaching Puzzles

  When we took over the cafe next door, which became The Three Little Pigs, we inherited these two vintage teaching aids.

  Until now they have been gathering dust at the back of englishpool, but during a recent clean-up I decided that they would be better on display.

  So here they are, enjoy!

Olivia and French Kitty

  We were glad to receive these two books from a student's mother to add to our school library. They are Oliva by Ian Falconer and Oui, Oui, Waikiki by Mighty Fine.

  Thank you for the books, I'm sure many our students will enjoy reading them just as much as your children did!

What's in the Witch's Kitchen?

  Having a lot of Halloween fun with the excellent What's in the Witch's Kitchen? book by Nick Sharrat

  This year I've had a lot of success using it in the elementary classes, as we've recently been studying house vocabulary; so the book has come in handy to recycle some of the language we've learned.

  I've also got to teach them some new words such as 'nasty goblin wee' and 'rabbit plops.' :-)

英語ぷらす listing

  Happy to see we are included on a list of nine recommended English schools around Higashi-Shinjuku Station. Thank you to the people at eigo plus (英語ぷらす) for the listing!

 The actual page is too long to quote in full but basically they list sixteen points to check for when choosing a school to learn English at. This is point sixteen:

 '英語そのものは独学でも学べますが、コミュニケーションスキルである英会話はやはり実際に誰かを相手に使う事でしか身につけることはできません。

そのために英会話教室に通おうと決めた際、「失敗した……」「無駄なお金を使った……」とならないためにも、気をつけるべきポイントをしっかり確認して、東新宿であなたに合った英会話教室を見つけましょう。

きっと楽しく通っているうちに、とても自然に英語で話せていることに気づいて驚く日がやってきますよ!'

 Which basically says that, while it's possible to learn English on your own, you can't learn how to have a conservation without having somebody to talk too. So get yourself along to englishpool (or one of the other eight schools) after carefully checking the previous fifteen points.

 The link for the orginal page is https://eigo.plus/school/higashi_shinjuku
