Today, I want to talk about my new gig. Recently, I began producing a short radio segment that airs as part of DJ Maroe’s show every Tuesday at 5PM. In this segment, called Adult English Time, I have fun chatting with English-speaking guests followed by a small (but interesting) English lesson. This week’s guest is Alex Bradshaw. He’s from England and is currently working at Senganen.

We are going to be speaking about his job and about his home country.
Check us out on 78.6 FM Ginga at 5PM today! You can also listen via the internet at FM786.jp!


私事ですが、最近家で収穫できた野菜です。
Here are some of the vegetables I was able to grow recently.

Seppetobe Festival

Hello. This is Hayato.
みなさんこんにちは!はやとです。

On June 3rd, I joined a local festival called “Seppetobe” in Hiyoshi City (where I live).
“Seppetobe” is a festival performed in order to pray for a good rice harvest.
6月3日に僕が住んでいる日吉町で「せっぺとべ」というお祭りに参加してきました。
この祭りは土をこねる足踏み耕の意味と害虫を踏み潰す意味があり、泥にまみれて今年一年の豊作を祈願します。

We drink shochu from 7AM, go around to different rice fields in the area, and jump and dance around in the mud!
It’s a fun festival, and if you like shochu, you will definitely enjoy yourself here
(they make you drink every 10 minutes from a special shochu server made out of bamboo and a hose).
どんなお祭りかというと、朝7時から焼酎を飲んで田んぼの中を飛び跳ね、歌って踊るというとてもシンプルなお祭りです。
手作りの焼酎サーバーもまたシンプルで、竹の筒にホースを突っ込んで吸い上げるというとても贅沢な飲み方です。
ポリタンクから飲んでる地区もありました… 焼酎好きにはたまらなく楽しいお祭りですね!

It looks pretty crazy, but it’s a lot of fun. Here’s to an excellent rice harvest!

Yudai’s Birthday Card

In English Quest, we teach English (of course), but we also teach many other skills.
In the Space Room, our students create art projects, practice typing, write stories and journals, and even learn computer skills…. all in English!

Lately, many of our younger students have been learning how to use Microsoft Word and Paint.
Yesterday, one of our students asked if he could make a birthday card for his mother using the skills he learned in Paint.

The yellow font is a little hard to read, but the card turned out great.

This wasn’t the first time he has asked to make a card.
After Mr. Hayato’s baby was born, he also suggested that everyone make cards to congratulate Mr. Hayato.

It’s fun seeing our students get excited about creating things.
Who knows? Maybe he even has a future in graphic design.

School Garden

20170512_120207

Hello everyone.
Do you know what flower this is?
Some people think it’s crazy and strange,
but I think it is so beautiful.
It is a passion fruit flower.
I have grown them on my balcony for
about four years and I always share the fruit
with Stapleton teachers.

Maybe you don’t know that we have
a small balcony garden in our school.
Recently I donated a strawberry plant
to the garden and today the strawberries
are ready to eat.

今日のブログでみなさんにご紹介したいのは…

イングリッシュクエストのスカイルーム!
In the Sky Room, there are monitors,
スカイルームには2つのモニターがあり、

…showing vocabulary…
一つは単語が流れていて

DSC_0510
…and sentence patterns.
もう一つは単語を使った会話パターンが流れています。


_20170518_150040
Students listen to each monitor, practice their pronunciation,
子ども達はそれぞれを聞いた後、声に出して練習し、

_20170518_145632
and memorize the words through games and activities.
ゲームなどを通して単語を覚え、

_20170518_185616 (1)
Then they practice the sentence pattern with their friends.
他のお友達と会話の練習をします

今回の単語、そしてパターンは昆虫です。
“What (bugs) don’t you like?”
“I don’t like ________.”
「どの昆虫が嫌い?」
「OOが嫌い!」

And that will be all from the Sky Room!
以上、スカイルームからでした。

See you next time!
