Special Week in May

2016年6月24日

中3英語チャレンジプログラムの生徒は、英語漬けの1週間として、異文化理解と日本文化紹介についての様々な特別授業を行いました。

初日は、イギリス文化研究、ホームステイで役立つ英会話、日本の遊び(けん玉、こま、折り紙、ダルマ落とし、竹とんぼ)を英語で紹介するなどを、楽しくネイティブ教員と行いました。

<生徒の感想>

The unique culture of Japan is wonderful!! I thought that so much kendama is difficult, but I had really a fun time★ Playing with my friends was my good memories. I want people all over the country to know Japanese culture! I am looking forward to talking with them in the future.

 

It was difficult to explain how to use Japanese game “kendama” in English. When I go to the UK, I want to tell children there about Japanese culture. So I have to learn and practice more English words.

 

翌日には、アイルランド大使館広報・文化担当官のアッシュリン・ブレーデン氏をお招きして、生活・文化について講演をしていただきました。

We studied about Ireland by an Irish embassy staff. She told us about Irish culture, food, music, and more. She used movies and pictures to teach about Ireland, so it was easy to understand. After the lecture, I thought that I would like to go to Ireland in the future.

 

We had a special lecture on Ireland. We were taught about Ireland by an Irish Embassy staff member. I did not know much about the country, so it was very interesting. I was surprised at the nature of Ireland.

 

2日後には、英語で巡る東京ツアーを行いました。外国人の気分になって英語でガイドを聞きながら、江戸東京博物館~両国国技館(前)~スカイツリー~浅草演芸ホール~浅草寺と駆け巡りました。

Edo Tokyo Museum was very interesting! There are a lot of exhibits about the history of Japan. And, the view from the observation deck in Tokyo Skytree was beautiful. After that I watched manzai and rakugo. I am glad to watch the famous entertainers “Naitsu.” Our last destination Sensoji Temple and Nakamise shopping street were very crowded. But I enjoyed shopping with my friends.

 

In Asakusa Engei (entertainment) Hall, we enjoyed rakugo. It was difficult to understand but so funny. We happened to see “Naitsu” do manzai. It was very funny and I wanted to see them more.
