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!

E-Friends recent news

Hello everyone!

It has been another week of catching up with people after the new year break.

We went to Kami elementary school for English club. It was good to hear what the girls had been up to over the new year break. We then played describe the object game which was a little difficult but the girls were able to do it and we had a fun time.

 

It was a big 'LONG TIME NO SEE' when we went to Amura nursery school. The last time we went was in October last year. I was pleasantly surprised to hear the children and could tell that they have been practising. When they sang 'Head, shoulders, knees and toes' they were fantastic! Great job kids!

The second week of Adult class was on Monday night. This week we were practising asking questions and agreeing or disagreeing with the answers, demonstrating that simple questions and answers can form a conversation.

 

We went to Shimoyama nursery school, we tried a new way of singing 'Head, shoulders, knees and toes' it took the kids 2 to 3 goes before they were able to do it and they all enjoyed it. We also practised the 'P' pronunciation, the children always keep improving.

 

We had kids activity classes in Ryugatake and Himedo on Wednesday and Thursday. Melisa the ALT for Himedo and Ryugatake joined both classes. This week we made pom-poms. The kids were very good at making them, concentrating a lot while at the same time answering questions in English, Good job!

 

Please look in the Events section for the new schedule for the E-Friends Activity classes.

See you soon

Tim.
