What is E-Friends?

E-friends Eigomura was launched in 2009 to improve international communication in Kamiamakusa city, Kumamoto ken, Kyushu, Japan.

E-friends Eigomura motto is “Let's have fun” we aim to introduce the citizens of Kamiamakusa old and young to the English language through activities, international talks and events.

We use our motto “Let's have fun” to break away from the confined teachings of the class room and make our classes a relaxed environment so people can think free without the pressure of thinking English. E-friends number one goal is all about communication!

上天草英語村E-Friends とは?

E-Friends は、熊本県の上天草市に所在し、国際交流を発展させる目的のもと2009年に始動しました。

E-Friends のモットーは「一緒に楽しむ」ということです。そして、様々な活動や国際的な話、イベントを通して、上天草市の子どもからお年寄りまで、たくさんの人々に、英語という言語を紹介していきたいと思っています。

私たちのモットーである「一緒に楽しむ」ということの真髄には、教室という限られた空間で英語を教え、学ぶという概念を打ち破りたいという思いがあります。英語を話さなければならないというプレッシャーのない、人々が自由に考えリラックスできる環境を作っていきたいと考えています。E-Friendsの1番の目的は、コミュニケーションです!

April week 3

Hello all,

The week started off with E-friends going to Amura village hall to give a talk to Ladies group about the UK.  There were about 80 people at the talk, I introduced the UK and my home town and also some of the legal differences between Japan and the UK.  I ended the talk by comparing UK  and Japanese food and also spoke about the experience of having my parents visit Kamiamakusa city.  I really enjoyed giving the speech and hope the Ladies enjoyed it too.

At Shimoyama nursery school we met the new kids who are joining English time.  It was their first lesson so they were all a little nervous and quiet, but the children from last year helped them along and demonstrated some of the songs and games that we do.  During lunch time the kids were asking many questions about English and were very talkative.

It was our first visit to Matsushima nursery school as well this week, we had a  short lesson of only about 30 minutes but the kids were very energetic.  When it came to finishing time they didn't want to stop and asked us to come back soon.



At Matsushima and Oyano kids class we made folded paper animals.  Some of the kids made their own designs or used some of the templates we had already  prepared.  It was good to see the kids making their own animals without using the templates.



The week ended with us going to Hikari nursery school.  I played some games with the kids where they had to work in teams to guess the colour, we also used the CD player to sing some songs together which the children enjoyed but found tiring.  Like at Shimoyama the children were very talkative during lunch time.



See you soon

Tim
