  • 2018年03月07日「日本の社会で女性の役割」について、英作文を書きました

    In the weekly English morning broadcast, Mr. Hollinghurst talked about an interview with the prime minister of Norway that he read about in a newspaper article. Norway was at the top of the United Nations ‘2017 World Happiness Report’ and in second place in the World Economic Forum’s ‘Gender Gap Index’.
    In his 5th grade English Writing class, the students did a 5-minute ‘Freewriting’ exercise on the subject of ‘Women in Japan.’ Here are two of the compositions that the students produced.
    5年生「英語作文」の授業で“日本女性”をテーマに自由英作文を書きました。これは、先日の朝の祈りにて、ノルウェーが“国連 世界幸福度報告(2017年)”で1位、また“男女格差指数”で2位であったという結果について知ったことがきっかけでした。
    制限時間はわずか5分間でしたが、自分たちの考えを英語で表現することに挑戦しました。生徒たちの書いたものの中から、二人の作文を紹介します(ほぼ原文のままです)。

    It is said that it’s not easy for women in Japan to keep working because of having baby or housework and it is said that they don't have choices. It's true, but I think many women intentionally choose to stay home and later they regret doing that. I know the society doesn't have good systems for women so much, but you can fight against it. I don't deny staying at home, but it is risky since once you quit your job, then it is more and more hard to find a new job. These days Mr. Abe is planning to do things to make the equal society between men and women. I'm looking forward to that society.
    日本では女性が仕事を続ける環境が整っていないことは事実ですが、家事に専念することを自ら選択する人も多いです。今後、女性が働きやすい、より良い社会になることを楽しみにしています。
    Yuri Fujimoto

    I think women in Japan can become more powerful if rules in their company or city change. Women in Japan have many things to do by themselves, for example working, raising children and housework. I think it's one of the reasons why Japanese women today can't do their best in their jobs or have a happy life. So I suppose that Japanese husbands and boys should help women whenever they need.
    私は会社や行政が変わることで、現代の日本の女性がより女性自身の力を発揮できるようになると考えます。日本において、例えば家事や子育ても、女性に負担がかかっているように思います。ぜひ、日本の男性達や男の子達も、女性を助けてあげてほしいです。

  • 2018年03月02日【カナダ研修旅行】2月28日カナダ研修参加者対象オンライン英会話

    The 16 students who will go to Canada from March 20 had a chance to speak to teachers in the Philippines on the subject of ‘My hobbies’ or ‘Talking about Japan’. The 25-minute lesson flew past and everyone enjoyed the experience hugely. They are all really looking forward to the challenge of using their English skills with their host families, the high school ‘buddies’, and all the other people they will meet in Vancouver.

  • 2018年03月01日【カナダ研修旅行】Introducing Canada

    【Canada Study Trip (March 20-30, 2018) カナダ研修旅行(2018年3月20日~30日)】

    Hello! We are 16 junior and senior high students (junior high 3rd grade to senior high 2nd grade) and we will be visiting the Vancouver area of British Columbia (B.C.) for about ten days at the end of March. In preparation for this trip, we have started weekly orientation meetings after school. In the first and second orientations, we made short presentations about things we had researched Canada. Here is some of our research. Please enjoy reading it!

    I did some research on famous food. One of the traditional dishes is grilled salmon. Salmon is not that cheap, but it tastes really good. We can also eat salmon in a bagel, and Canadian eat sushi called ‘B.C. Roll’, too. It looks like California Roll, but a B.C. Roll typically has salmon (including its skin), lettuce, cucumber and avocado in it. I researched fast food, too. Canadian fast food includes fish & chips, hot dogs and poutine. I think everyone knows about fish & chips and hot dogs, so I will explain about poutine. Poutine is fried potatoes with melted cheese and gravy source on them. Poutine is very popular and we can eat it everywhere in Canada.

    I did some research on music and sweets. I really like to listen to music, not only J-Pop, but also Western music. I like Shawn Mendes, who comes from Canada! I have heard that pumpkin pie is one of the most popular sweets in Canada, so I want to try it!

    I did some research on food. Canada is known as a country of immigrants, so you can eat lots of different countries’ food. Actually, Canada doesn’t have much local food. Speaking of Canada, of course, everyone probably knows that maple is famous. Other Canadian food is poutine, ‘Nanaimo bar’, fish and chips and Tim Hortons. A ‘Nanaimo bar’ is custard icing sandwiched between chocolate and a coconut chocolate cake base. Canada’s food is higher in calories than Japanese food, so we must be careful not to eat too much.

    I did some research on places. There are many nice places in Vancouver, Canada. I'll introduce two places I thought I would like to go to. First is Gastown. There are cobbled streets and street lamps with an antique atmosphere, gourmet spots, such as cafes and restaurants, and gift shops .Next is the seawall around Stanley Park. It's popular as a spot where cycling and walking can be done with beautiful scenery on a road with a total length of 8.8km. There are many other wonderful places, too.

    I did some research on Canada's desserts. I will introduce 3 desserts. First is Cleary's maple waffles. Maple cream is sandwiched between 2 waffles. It is more delicious when placed on a hot drink. Second is ‘Nanaimo bar’. It is a major sweet in Canada. It is called Nanaimo, but it doesn’t not use potatoes! It's made of coconut cookies ,custard cream and chocolate. Third is S'more. You can eat these often when you camp in Canada. It uses marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker. Please try to eat them!

    Niagara Falls is a very famous sightseeing spot in Canada. Strictly speaking, it's on the border of America and Canada. It was selected as a World Heritage Site, and various people come to see.
    When I go to Canada, I'd like to go to Niagara Falls.

    I did some research on The Butchart Gardens (in Brentwood Bay, on Vancouver Island). There is an English garden. It has many kinds of flowers and trees. It changes by season. For example in the spring there are tulips, in the summer roses, in the autumn maple trees, and in the winter snowdrops and other things. About a million tourist visits in this place every year. I want to go there someday.

    I did some research on cranberries. Cranberries are grown in many of Canada’s provinces. Canada is the second largest producer of cranberries in the world. There are several ways to eat them. You can eat them raw or mix with them with maple syrup to make sauce or juice. In Canada, they are harvested in the autumn, when the fruit is ripe, shiny, and deep red. Cranberries are sour, but they look very delicious. I want to eat some in Canada.

    I did some research on food. Canada’s famous food is “smoked salmon”. There are many kinds of smoked salmon in Canada. One kind is called “smoked salmon rocks”. The most popular type of smoked salmon in Canada is seasoned with maple syrup. It can be brought home as a souvenir to Japan. Many kinds of things are sold in small quantities. I want to buy some kinds to eat and compare them.

    I did some research on Banff National Park.
    Banff National Park is Canada's oldest national park and was established in 1885. This park's area is 6641 square kilometers. The beautiful view points in the park are Minnewanka Lake, Mount Rundle, Vermilion Lake, Morain Lake, Bow Lake and Peyto Lake. Banff National Park is registered as a World Heritage Site.
