My Thoughts

Olympic Surfing in Chiba, 2020

This is very exciting for me as I have been surfing for about 20 years but rarely get to see professional surfers in action. With the venue being on the Chiba coast near to the breaks I regularly surf, I hope to get a closer view as the pros train for the event along the coast. I hope the event will create an international atmosphere and give my students motivation to improve their English and the chance to interact with people from around the world using the English they have learned.

2020東京オリンピック サーフィン会場は千葉!

2020東京オリンピックで初めて正式種目に追加されたサーフィンの開催会場が、千葉県一宮町釣ヶ崎海岸(通称:志田下ポイント)に内定されました。そのニュースに、当アメリカンランゲージスクールのヘッドティーチャーであるPeterも大喜びしています。プロの素晴らしいパフォーマンスを近くで見られることはもちろんですが、英語を学習している生徒にも素晴らしい機会となるはずです。世界中の人たちと英語で交流し、さらに英語の学習意欲が高まることを願っています。
