English study abroad for elementary school teachers | Thank you to the teachers who have always kindly encouraged me!
Name | Kayoko Kobayashi (51 years old)
Resident place | Kanagawa
Period | 3 weeks
Course | one-to-one course
| Please introduce yourself briefly.
After joining the Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers, I became an elementary school teacher and currently work as a teacher in Yokohama City.
| What is the purpose of studying abroad?
I have always wanted to be able to speak English, and I tried various things, but I was not able to get in touch with myself … I want to study abroad from the environment by using summer vacation. I decided.
| Filipino lecturer, how was your lesson?
Every teacher was kind and taught me carefully until I understood it.
I thought that it would be tired because the teacher changes every hour, but it was fun and one day passed in no time. The teachers were very happy when I could speak well and always encouraged me without confidence as “You can do it”.
| Have you felt any change in your English?
It was a short period of three weeks, so I could not tell if I could clearly change it, but I felt that from the second week I could understand the teacher’s English a little bit . I think that the vocabulary has increased because I repeated “writing”, “listening” and “speaking” for more than one note in three weeks.
| What is your impression of studying abroad?
1 Teachers looked at me and listened to the story
2 I went to a shopping mall with foreign students from Taiwan on Saturday and went to a meal at a shopping mall
in 3 schools Asked the teacher to show you the sights of the city or get on the jeepney
| What did you say in your graduation speech?
The teachers taught me kindly during the day, so I made a speech that I enjoyed studying and at the same time I was grateful.
The graduation ceremony was on Tuesday, so I was the only one, but all the teachers were present, and I was impressed by the presents of warm words and songs. I was really happy to see the message from each of the teachers who taught me.
| TAKA HARI ENGLISH What is ACADEMY’s best points?
Because it is a school with a homely atmosphere, I think it is safe for parents and children to study abroad during the summer vacation. The food is also delicious because it uses Japanese rice.
| The last thing to finish studying abroad
It’s been a long time since I studied so much.
I would like to study more in three weeks. It was a really fulfilling three weeks. This is not the end, I want to continue studying. And I want the teachers to see me who has improved to study abroad again.
I will never forget my experience here in TAKAHARI and I want to continue studying English.
I am looking forward to be back here someday.
Thank you. p>
