July 20th was MWE's very first English Movie Day and discussion class. Thank you to all of the students who came! Everyone did a wonderful job expressing their opinions and theories about the movie. Sara and I hope that you all had as much fun as we did. We don't want to spoil the movie for people for people who haven't seen it yet, but here are some highlights from the discussion: The most popular line was Maleficent's "Well well". The raven/crow was more popular than Prince Philip. For the...

Hello everybody! Let's study the verb phrase: "get wet".... The rainy season has arrived again. But so far it isn't very rainy! I don't like the rainy season. Do you like the rainy season? In Canada, we don't have a rainy season because the air is very dry. So I don't like the high humidity in Japan. It is hard to wash my clothes, or to put on my make up. But the number one reason I don't like the rainy season is because everyone and everything GETS WET!! Especially my dogs! I have two dogs: a...

みなさんは英検やTOEICを受験された事がありますか? 私は英検やTOEICの試験官と面接委員の仕事を10年以上に渡ってしてきました。 10年前と違う事はその受験者数が飛躍的に増えたという事です。企業での採用や昇進、海外への赴任には必ず英会話力が必要です。また高校時代に得た英検の合格が大学入試に考慮される事はみなさんご承知の通りです。...

Thank you to everyone who was able to come to my welcome party at Buzz Dazzling last Saturday! I had a great time and I really enjoyed talking with all of you. Please feel free to talk to me when you have time. If you don't know the English, I'll help - practice makes perfect! :) Just to tell you a little about myself... I grew up in the city of New Castle which is in the state of Delaware in the United States. Delaware is the second smallest state - see if you can find it on a map. I studied...

Hi everyone! Megan here again. I hope you are having a wonderful spring. I`m really enjoying the cool breeze right now because very soon it will become humid and too hot. Lately a certain cat video has become famous in the US. The video isn`t the usual "cute cat" video...it shows a cat being a hero! A 3 year old boy was outside on his bike when he suddenly was attacked by the neighbor`s dog. The dog grabbed the boy by the leg and was shaking him when the brave cat ran up and kicked the dog...

Hi everyone! Today's post was actually inspired by a trip to a library. I recently visited the Mie Prefectural Library. I love that library because it has a huge section of foreign books--French, Spanish, German, English, their range of books is truly impressive. I got really excited when I walked in, and I found myself wondering why I love reading so much. The answer I came up with is this: I began to love reading because of positive experiences with picture books in elementary school. My...
