Welcome to Darlo's Diary!

皆が英語を習うには、このブログは簡単な英語で書かれる。頑張ろう!Darlo comes from the UK and lives in Japan. He lives in Funabashi, which is in Chiba prefecture. What is he doing?

I'm not a very good cook. I like sweet snacks. But I also love fruit juice. A few days ago, I made my own fruit juice.

To make my fruit juice, you need frozen berries (raspberry, blueberry and blackberry) and apple juice.

Put them all in a blender (ブレンダー) and mix them. It's very easy to make!

After, I put some in special bottles. I then put them in the fridge (冷蔵庫) for later. Enjoy!

Happy new year! Wooooh!

Did you have a nice Christmas? How was New Year? I received a special gift at Christmas, so I will talk about it today.

But first, here's one of my favourite versions of Auld Lang Syne (蛍の光)!

I received a few gifts from my friends and family. They live all over the world. Thank you everyone!

I moved to Chiba in 2013. I like to think about Yamaguchi, and sometimes visit the area. I am always happy when I see my old students. Have you seen me?

At Christmas I sent some Christmas Cards to my old schools. This year, one elementary school did something very special.

Every student wrote me a letter. While reading all of them I was almost moved to tears.

Students asked me how I was, and also some interesting questions. "Have you met Funassyi?" "Have you been to Tokyo Disneyland?"

I'm looking forward to my next visit to Hohoku.

When I was a teacher, I told my students that I had a Nintendo DS.

Student: "3DS?"

Darlo: "No, I have the old one."

Student: "DSi?"

Darlo: "No, the old one."

Student: "DS Lite?"

Darlo: "No! I have the old one!"

Student: " ... Game Boy Advance? Darlo-sensei that's not a DS."

Many of my students are young, and cannot remember the original DS. It was very big and strong. It still works (動作) now, and I often play Mario Kart.

My good old Nintendo DS.

When the 3DS came out in 2011, I was not very impressed. For me it was the same as a DS. It was also not 3D. For me 3D is when things jump out (飛び出す) from the screen (画面).

After a while, many games were released. The 3DS became a very strong console. It was so strong that a new version has been released. The new version is called the New Nintendo 3DS. Do you know it? Have a look at this video.

When I watched this video, I decided to buy a New Nintendo 3DS. There were some games I wanted to play. For example Super Smash Brothers (大乱闘スマッシュブラザーズ). After asking my friends "Should I buy a small one or a big one?", I chose the big one.

So here it is. My new New Nintendo 3DS console. I decided to buy the Super Smash Brothers themed one. I think it looks cool.

Isn't it just

I play Super Smash Brothers a lot. But I only use one character. He is from a game which is called Animal Crossing (動物の森), and he is called Villager (村人).

There are lots of things I do not understand about the 3DS. But I am enjoying learning about it.

Old and New
