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 moto 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 moto “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!

August

Hello Everybody,

It has been a while since we have updated the website, but the reason is a good one.  It is because we have been busy preparing for some big events that were happening throughout August.

The biggest event was E-friends international summer camp which happened on 18th 19th and 20th of August.  This year was the 2nd time we have held the camp and this year was just as good as last, if not better.  The camp lasted 3 days 2 nights, which was longer than last years camp meaning we had more time to practice for international night and do more activities such as T-shirt making, treasure hunt game and craft making.  The kids had a chance to meet different people from all over the world.  This year we had teachers from Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, New Zealand and Australia.  Please check out the photos here.

E-Friends also joined Amura Elementary school's 6th grade camp event.  We went hiking around Eigomura and did various other activities.  The kids had many questions after listening to my talk about Great Britain.  Early the next morning we made boomerangs and hemp bracelets.  Photos can be viewed here.

At the beginning of the month we had an activity day for Kumon at E-Friends house (aroma).  The morning started with a word hunt, the kids had to search the play area for flash cards and try to remember the word for later when they would have to answer questions.  The Kumon kids did excellent as they knew all the flashcards and were able to complete the game with full points. In the afternoon we had craft time which was a great chance to chat with the kids and parents. Photos can be viewed here.

We have many photos so please check out the photo galleries here,  Also check out the new schedule for Kids class here.

Will be posting again soon
