テーマ:

こんにちは!僕はカリフォルニアベアの元生徒です。

 

🔺ユナイテッドでした

 

今、東京の国立大学大学院で応用化学分子の研究室にて化学の研究をしています。

 

辻堂出身、地元の小、中を卒業し、県立鎌高へ進学し

 

剣道に明け暮れ一浪を経て、国立大学へ進学いたしました。

 

トッド先生に出会ったのは、小学生の時で

一目でトッドが大好きになり、ジュニアクラスのレッスンに入りました。

あんな風に大歓迎してくれた先生に会ったことがなかったのですぐに大ファンになりました。

 

🔺空港です

 

小学四年の頃の僕は、勉強も運動も出来ないいわゆる

 

アメリカでよく出てくるWord「チキン!」みたいな。小学校でもいじられキャラで。。。

 

学童も嫌でやめてしまい、はじめ習った英語教室の日本人男性の先生とは厳しすぎて

すぐにやめました。「ああいうエリート養成みたいな英語スクールは僕にはとても辛かったのです」

 

僕には1つだけ得意なことがありました。ゲームです。

 

それとノリの良い人が大好きでした!


トッド先生がこんな僕に

 

「KOUSUKE!」と

 

いつも面白いことを投げかけてくれ、

認めてくれて、

先生に会いにいくのがとても楽しみでした。

 

レッスンクラスは、今思えば 他の中学のお兄ちゃんとおなじクラスでややレベルが高かったのですが、

 

英検も小学生で準2合格出来たのはトッド先生のおかけです。二次が楽しかった。

 

外国人のおじさんが 友達みたいに会話してくれて 試験も、いつものレッスン通りに会話できたんです。

 

 

🔺ケーブルカー

 

その後剣道部の部活が忙しくなりご無沙汰してしまったけど、

 

進学塾と並行してでも カリフォルニアベアへ通うことはとても良いことだと思います。

 

英語は 今 得意ではないです。 そんな僕ですが、みなさんに、伝えたいことがあります。


この春、大学四年 日本化学学会で研究発表をさせていただきました。

 

みなさんほとんどが英語での発表です。

 

英語力はかなり教授にフォローしてもらいました。

 

🔺Golden gate 

 

 

 

トッド先生の授業は素晴らしいです。

 

幼児から本当に習っておけばよかったと母とよく話します。

 

そのころはトッドに出会っていなかったのだけど。

 

幼児から習うと発音が違いますし、聞き取れない音が聞き取れるし、

舌の使い方も違います。

 

外国人に慣れて、色々な感情表現を「感じる」ことがとても大切です。

 

テキストより五感で覚える感じです。

 

幼児期にトッドから習った英語は、一生の宝になると思います。

 

🔺ball Park サンフランシスコジャイアンツ イチロー選手が背番号で見えます

 

 

そして、小学生のうちにカリフォルニアベアに行って習っておくことは

とても意味があります。

 

小学生の時って、とてもまだ時間に余裕があるからです。

 

その時に学校帰りに通い、友達のように接してくれる先生方が、

英語を好きに楽しくさせてくれ、

垣根や苦手意識を無くしてくれる。

 

得意に慣ればぐんぐん伸びるし。

 

確かに、アプリやオンデマンドを使ったレッスンもあるけど、

 

対面での外人の先生のレッスンは比べようもない得られる価値があります。

 

初めは続くかもしれないけどアプリやオンデマンドにはすぐ飽きてしまい、

 

自分では余程の理由がないと、向かわなくなります。

 

それに一方通行ですからね。(通えない理由がある人は別にして)

 

🔺ヨセミテ

 

だから、幼、小、中とぜひレッスンを続けてもらいたいですね。

 

大学受験や、就職してからの英語レベルって、

想像以上に驚くほどみんな高いですから。

 

 

授業も英語だらけだし、テキストは全部英語です。

 

英語漬けの毎日で、もっと英語をやっておけばよかったと思います。

 

ざらに英語ができる学生が沢山いて、その中で仕事していこうと思うのなら、

 

続けること、英語習慣が大事ですね。

 

🔺フィッシャーマンワーフ(アシカが沢山います)

 

前置きが長くなりましたが、卒業を記念して

 

サンフランシスコに家族で4/1〜5 行ってきました。

 

サンフランシスコでも、トッド先生やスクールのことを思い出しました。

 

なぜならシスコにはトッドにそっくりな男性が沢山いて、

 

レオくんにそっくりな子供も結構いました(笑)とても会いたくなりました!

 

また、かリフォリニアに行ってみたいです。(KOUSUKE)

 

===========

母より サンフランシスコの旅

その後全く英語が出来ない母の私が、

 

アダルトクラスのグループに入り習いました。

 

私はサンフランシスコへ行って、トッド先生を思い出しました。

 

買い物から、挨拶、数、旅行や生活で大切な会話を

 

とても熱心に教えてくれていたんだな〜と実感しました。

 

授業に出てきたフレーズや言葉が多く登場したからです。

 

また、ヨセミテではトッド先生のような

 

とても最高のサービスのガイドさんに出会いました。

 

アメリカンジョークと、気遣いの思いやりに感動しました。

 

英語がうまく喋れないのですが、これから喋れるようになりたいです。

 

今は仕事が多忙でお休みしているけど、

 

いつかスクールに復帰したいと計画しています。

 

ロスにも行ってみたいです。

Unforgettable Singapore

 

 

 I went on a three day trip to Singapore in April, 2016. It was my second time to visit southeast Asia, after Cambodia. Singapore has many famous sightseeing spots such as the Merlion, Night Safari and Gardens by the Bay, however, I am going tell you about other memorable events of my trip. There were two unforgettable moments during my journey.


First, I was delighted by the Koon Seng Road in the Katong area of the East Region. Katong is well-known for Peranakan culture. Rich Peranakan residents used to live in this area and many pretty houses remain. It is characteristic of Peranakan houses to have rich door and wall fretwork. I walked around the neighborhood a long time although it was hot and humid. I appreciated to beautiful decorative design of the houses.



Second, I very much enjoyed Sentosa. The island lies among the Southern Islands in the Central Region of Singapore. I went there by subway and monorail. In the “Mega Adventure” field, I tried a very thrilling attraction, called the “Mega Zip.” After the staff attached a safety belt to my waist, I slid sharply down from atop a 450 meter mountain to the beach at a speed of 60 kilometers an hour. I was really frightened when I looked down but it gave me a good thrill!



 Singapore is the cleanest and safest country that I have ever visited. I think the memory of these happy days will last forever.

Second Life in Australia

 

BGM  “I am Australian”

 

Good day, mate!!! I went to Melbourne and Sydney for 10 days in April, 2016.

I retired last year, and am now enjoying my second life. Here’s my story:

 

Arrival at Sydney Airport

Sydney Passport control introduced a facial recognition system, called SmartGate.

I was worried about it because I stopped dyeing my hair after retirement and lost weight and my face is different from the passport photo. I stood in front of the gate and looked at the camera but the gate didn’t open. I tried many times, until finally the gate opened, I shouted “Yes!!!”.

After that I transferred to Qantas Airlines for Melbourne.

 

                                                                                                                                                               

Melbourne

Melbourne was named the “world’s most livable city” by the Economist.

There are many parks and gardens so it’s called the garden city.

I went to the State Library of Victoria. It was selected one of the “Top 15 Libraries to visit before you die by Trip Advisor.”

This library is very spacious and beautiful and displays many artworks.

https://www.tripadvisor.jp/TripNews-a_ctr.Libraries

 

 

Melbourne is also known as the gourmet city. There are many ethnic cuisines including Italian, Greek, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese … and JAPANESE!!

I ate the local dish at an old pub, the kangaroo burger!!

It’s Kangaroo meat and tastes delicious like teriyaki chicken.

 

 

 

Australian Coffee

I’m a big fan of coffee (see ep.4 Shanghai Sharks). Australia coffee culture is very unique. Can you tell the differences between Australian Coffees? (see the Australian coffee guide.)

http://sydneymovingguide.com/coffee-in-australia/

 

It’s very complex, so I was very confused and always ordered Cappuccino.

I drank many cappuccinos.

 

Sydney

I enjoyed my stay in Sydney. Sydney has 2 historical structures: the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.

  

This is the famous Harbour Bridge.

 

 

Oh! Is there something on top of the bridge?

 

Oh my gosh! People are walking on the top of the bridge!!!

I went to a seafood restaurant. It is located on a cape near downtown Sydney.

We have to take a ferry to get to the beachside restaurant.

I walked around the many beautiful points, beaches, and luxury houses.

I think reading signs is useful for learning English.

I always read signs in shops and sightseeing spots.

For example:

 

But, I didn’t understand this beach’s sign.

 

Todd, Can I ask you?

What does “Nudity permitted on beach only” mean?

Todd’s reply: The sign means you can walk around the beach without any clothes on, but don’t forget to put them on after leaving the beach. (unless you want to be arrested.)

 

Departing Sydney Airport

At the Departure gate I encountered the SmartGate again. I tried again many times but the gate didn’t open. This time, I was taken to a manned gate.

A Very beautiful young woman officer compared my face with the passport photo, gave a little chuckle and opened the gate.

My Australia trip was over….

 

Ending music..

“I still call Australia home” from Qantas.

I’ve been to cities that never close down,

From New York to Rio and old London town, 

But no matter how far or how wide I roam,

I still call Australia home.

I’m always trav’lin’, And I love being free, 

And so I keep leaving the sun and the sea, 

But my heart lies waiting over the foam. 

I still call Australia home. 

All the sons and daughters spinning ’round the world,

Away from their families and friends, 

But as the world gets older and colder and colder 

It’s good to know where your journey ends. 

But someday we’ll all be together once more,

When all of the ships come back to the shore, 

I realize something I’ve always known, 

I still call Australia home.

I studied English abroad in Santa Monica,California for six months. It was a good experience for me.
I’d like to introduce to you 3 of my favorite beaches: first, Malibu Beach. I watched the sunset there, and it was super beautiful. I think it’s the best L.A. beach, and so many famous people live there, including Justin Bieber, Brad Pitt, and Paris Hilton.



Second, Venice Beach. It has a huge skatepark where a lot of skaters go every day. I used to watch them. If you like skateboarding, you have to go there. It also has canals like Venice, Italy, but smaller. You can go shopping along the Venice Beach boardwalk, too.



Third, Santa Monica Beach. It’s at the end of Route 66 and has a long famous pier popular with tourists. The surfing, fishing, and beach are great and there is an amusement park on the pier. These are only my L.A. favorite, but California has so many beautiful beaches, it’s too hard to count. San Diego is even more famous for its beaches, the only way to know the beauty of California beaches is to visit them yourself.

Hi everyone. I am a midwife. I help mothers to give birth. Sometimes I meet foreign mothers in the hospital, so I started thinking that I want to support them and became interested in English. After working 1 year, I quit my job, then I left for a working holiday in Canada. It was my first time to go abroad alone, so it was so exciting!
First I did a homestay in Vancouver for 3 months. Then I really wanted to snowboard, so I moved to Whistler which is the biggest snow resort of Canada. I got a job in a Japanese restaurant even though I couldn’t speak English, and I went to work and snowboarded every day after work for a half a year.I really loved it. I miss those days.

After that, I moved to Sydney, Australia where I have Aussie friends who I met
snowboarding in Whistler. They invited me to their home. They showed me great hospitality. They knew I didn’t have much money, so they always helped me. We spent time together every day in their home. I enjoyed a second working holiday there.



Naturally, I spoke English every day, thanks to my friends, I was really motivated to speak more with them, simply for conversation. Communication in English made me happy.

Fortunately, I was able to find work in a coffee shop, kebab restaurant, and hotel housekeeper. I spent 1 year in Australia.

After my working holidays, I still keep in touch with my Aussie, Korean, Taiwanese, Canadian friends and of course Japanese.
Sometimes we meet and travel together. I'm enjoying my life with friends.

I recommend you go abroad. Don't hesitate to go to abroad.

テーマ:
Do you know what American city our teacher Todd grew up in…?
It is San Diego! I went on a road trip there during the last week of 2015 with my husband. While I was taking CBEC classes about 2 years ago, Todd taught me about San Diego and I thought I wanted to visit there someday because it sounded like one of the most beautiful cities in the U.S.A. Our road trip was so fascinating and my expectations about San Diego were completely true.

We live in San Jose, California. The distance between our city and San Diego is about 750 km; it takes 8 hours by car. It is soooo far. However we purposely chose to go there by car not by plane because we wanted to experience a long California road trip enjoying some places along the route to the destination, like the locals do. We packed a big suitcase, food and water in our car, and then our trip started in the morning on the day after Christmas. On the route, we had a fun time seeing the spectacles such as a huge farm against the beautiful green, brilliant Pacific Ocean and small, charming towns with beautiful houses which were built on the seashore. We took turns driving every 2 hours while taking breaks in the small towns. In the evening, we finally arrived at our first destination, Santa Barbara, where we stayed one night before going to San Diego. Santa Barbara is famous for its nice beaches and historical church.

When we arrived there, we could see the awesome sunset at the beach. We were moved and it helped to relieve our fatigue after a long drive. We left the city the next afternoon, and we finally got to San Diego at night.


San Diego is one of the top 10 most populated cities in the U.S.A, including New York and Los Angeles, however I felt that the atmosphere and the streetscape are totally different from them; it was very clean, comfortable and relaxing with a huge sky and ocean. We stayed four nights at a hotel which was close to the downtown and visited some spots we were interested in and enjoyed them so much. Additionally, I could find something out about the city that I’ll never forget… the delicious raw seafood! I love to eat seafood but I didn’t think I could find tastier and fresher raw seafood in the U.S.A than that in Japan, yet we did! We could encounter authentic Japanese sushi taste at a restaurant on our first night in San Diego. The restaurant was established by a Japanese sushi chef who moved to San Diego and opened the restaurant because he felt the local sea urchin (uni )is the best tasting he had ever had. The restaurant was very busy with many local people and they seemed to be enjoying the food so much. We could also find many kinds of seafood at other restaurants, bars and supermarkets. We had missed tasty raw fish since moving to the U.S.A, so we admired the taste so much and we ate seafood every night.


Our first California road trip was memorable, and San Diego is a place we recommend you visit and we want to visit again.
