Can't believe we are closing the 2017 Autumn-term this week here at Kitakyushu YMCA Language Dpt.
Time flies!!! I feel like the new year has started just last week!!!
Well, I taught two classes today.
In my afternoon class, there were two entrants to the short essay contest held in February so we gave them the certificate and prize gift!
They did very well and their essays were so interesting. I'm so happy for them!!
We had a School Party last Saturday, and I had a great time♪
Seven teachers and staff members and eleven students gathered at an izakaya-restaurant near Kokura station.
We ate & drank, chatting and playing games, just for FUN and FUN!
We played some games, and the LOSER group had to make their funny face!!
Here it is!
Yes, it was all fun!
Thank you so much for the great time!
I hope we'll be able to have another one sometime soon in 2018 Spring-term!
It's Girls' Day today, and I guess many people are planning to eat Chirashizushi, a bowl of vinegared rice with sashimi and vegetables on top, with Clam soup!!
We had a "Short Essay Contest" in February.
And now, the winners have been announced!!
The poster is now on the bulletin board! Please come and check it out!!
I'm proud of all the contestants(^^) Well done!
I really enjoyed reading their works! I could learn new things.
Hope more students will participate in the contest in the next term contest!
It's been so cold and we had troubles with snow...
I hate this cold weather, but this season grows great OYSTERS, so I love winter(^^)!
I went to an oyster hut in Itoshima the other day, and it was so much FUN!! (And very delicious!)
I hope to go again sometime next month!
If you haven't enjoyed oysters this winter yet, why don't you try??
The new year has started, and I can't believe about three weeks have already passed...
It has been so cold and the flu has hit the Kyushu, but I hope you out there are doing fine!!
Have you made your New Year's Resolutions for 2018??
It is a great time to look back 2017 and think ahead for 2018 to improve your life.
I made a lot of resolutions for this year.
Here I want to share some of mine!
1. Get up a little earlier: I hope to start my day early and make it more productive!
2. Use the stairs more instead of the escalator: I hope to stay fit cheaply!
3. Try to learn some Spanish words: I want to write to my Spanish friend.

MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR☆
December has started off and I guess everybody is being very busy.
Today, I have bad news.
Remember I wrote about our Drink Machine in the office last time?
Actually, it’s been decided that the machine is going to be removed next week…
I feel so sorry for the students who were going to use the drink voucher from the last-term contest.
We will think of what we can offer instead of drinks from that machine soon.
Anyway, we will miss that machine! Thank you and Good-bye!!
Well, everybody stay warm and enjoy the winter illumination in the city!!!
See you next time!
It's been getting colder and colder, and I just can't believe that December is coming soon...
I think everybody is being busy, but hope things are going fine!
Well, we have this Drink Machine in our office, which serves only "Hot Drinks."
It is not very popular in the summer, but his(?) season HAS COME!!
You can get Coffee, Cappuccino, Cafe Latte, Cafe Mocha, Cocoa, Black tea or Onion soup!
By the way, we hold "Short Essay Contest" every term at Kitakyushu YMCA, and the people who submitted their entry in the last-term contest got 3 Free Drink Vouchers(^^) I wonder if any of them has used the voucher yet.....? Gotta remind them of it!!
Thank you for reading my blog!
Have a nice hot cup of coffee and stay warm(^^)!
See you next time♪
