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:




 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

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.' :-)

Trick or Treat

  We're loving this Halloween craft, from Super Simple, in our Sprouts and Kinder classes this week. Super easy to make and a great way to learn some simple Halloween vocabulary, as well as introducing Trick or Treat to the younger students.

  And that's not all, it even has it's own Trick or Treat song and video..


 Enjoy...and Happy Halloween!

Conversation in one of our upper elementary classes last week:

Me: "What's your favourite fish or sea animal?"

Student: "I like Chin-anago"

Me: "..."

Time to search the internet I thought, a couple of clicks later searching on チンアナゴ and wikipedia had given us a picture and an English name, Spotted Garden Eel.

So now you know. I love it when I get to learn something in my classes too!

New School Chirashi

  Well, I finally redesigned our school leaflet, called chirashi in Japanese. The can't believe that we had been using the old leaflet, more or less unchanged, for nine years.

  Hopefully the new chirsahi will be just as successful as the previous version.

  You can take a look for yourself by clicking here:  2018 スクールチラシ(PDF)

  Thank you for reading!
