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!

English story time

Hello Everybody,

E-Friends joined a small event last Saturday (5th November) at Kamiamakusa central Library (Aroma).  Every month the library holds a story time class, this month E-Friends joined to read some books in English.

It was a great turn out with about 30 kids turning up to join the 1 hour long activity which included story telling and music.  The kids really enjoyed the book ‘How do you put it on’.  I read the whole of the book in English, and acted out many of the actions which really helped the kids understand and gave them a few laughs.

We then performed ‘if you’re happy and you know it clap your hands’ in English which everyone seemed to enjoy.  On finishing the song we moved on to the next book ‘what animal is it?’ the children were very good at guessing the animal and also guessing the colours in English.

Our second song was ‘Head shoulders knees and toes’ again everyone joined in with great success.  The last book that we read was ‘Wakey Wakey Dinosaur Baby’ The book was quite long and the kids did a great job concentrating for such a long time.

At the end of the event the kids received Balloon art sculptures such as poodles, rabbits and swords.  In the future we look forward to joining library story time again soon, and hope to see you there.

You can check out the photos in the photo gallery.
