【ひとこと】

2020年度からセンター試験に代わる大学入学希望者学力評価テスト(仮称)が実施されることとなりました。特に英語については、4技能(読む・書く・聞く・話す)の評価を外部テスト利用により行う方針が決定いたしましたが、「書く・話す」の発信型技能を苦手と感じておられる学生さんは少なくないのではないでしょうか。GEAでは、発信型を重視した授業を心がけております。ぜひ一度体験に来てみてください。

余談ですが、この5月にセブ島オスロブで、20匹!のジンベエザメと一緒に泳いできました!ジンベエザメと泳げる場所は世界中でオスロブだけなのだそうです。さんご礁の海に潜るのは初めてでしたので、色鮮やかな魚たち、エメラルドグリーンの海と真っ白な砂浜、打ち寄せられた多種多様な珊瑚にすっかり魅了されて帰ってきました。

【ひとこと】

Hello! Nice to meet you!

My name is Jenna Flores. I am from California, USA. I am an Okayama University student and will be living in Japan for 4 years. I grew up speaking Spanish and English at home but wanted to start learning Japanese. A lot of Japanese people lived in my town and there were many places to experience Japanese culture and history. So I moved to Japan to go to Okayama University. My hobbies are music, guitar, video games, soccer, and skateboarding.

I’ve been learning Japanese for the last four years and now I work here at Global English Academy. I want to help improve the speaking and pronunciation of your English, as well as help you feel relaxed when speaking to natives! English is a hard language, but it doesn’t have to be impossible. Whatever your goals are, I am confident I can help you achieve success and feel more comfortable speaking English. I will always answer any questions you may have, so don’t be afraid to ask!

【ひとこと】

Hello everyone! My name is Trung and I’m from Vietnam, but people usually call me Masaru. I’m currently studying in Okayama University, within the Discovery Program for Global Learners, where I meet many good friends and enjoy a multi-disciplinary approach to learning!

I first started studying English while I was still in kindergarten; it has been more than 10 years since that time but I still try to improve my English every day. I also have been studying Japanese since my first year of high school, which I had a lot of fun learning as I have deep interest in anime and Japanese culture. In my opinion, languages are hard and mysterious, but also very interesting; by studying a foreign language you also gradually learn about the culture and history of the country as well, so let’s try our best together! \(^▽^)/

Other than English, my hobbies include watching movies, listening to music and reading books. I also do a lot of sports as well; I played soccer and badminton back in junior high, took on baseball in high school and finally I am practicing ping-pong. Despite all that, I must say my true passion lies in cycling, especially long-distance, so whenever you want a partner to go somewhere, I’m always around!

Let’s have fun studying English together! I hope I can get along with everyone.

【ひとこと】

どうも、はじめまして! 私の名前はLee Shu Qing (リーシューチン)です。 Leeは私の家族の名前で、Shu Qingは私の個人名です。

私は何かを学び、教えるのが大好きです。 英語は私の最も自信のある科目なので、誰かが英語のスキルを向上させたり、最初から英語を学んだりするのを手伝うのを本当に楽しみにしています。 新しい言語を学ぶのは難しいかもしれませんが、何かに苦労している場合は私が案内しますのでご安心ください。
私は主に英語の本を読むのが大好きな人です。 余暇には、自分のフィクションも書いています。 私にとって、テキストでの言語の練習は音楽の作成と同等です。

ですから、もしよろしければ、英語の美しさをお見せしたいと思います!

 

Hi there, my name’s Lee Shu Qing! I come from the tropical country Malaysia that boasts a plethora of delicious foods.

I’m currently a 3rd year student in Kurashiki University of Arts and Science.

Growing up reading books excessively, English has become something I am most confident in myself. Which is why as an avid learner myself, I’d be delighted if I could teach others. Learning something foreign can be scary, but it can also be fun. If you ever face difficulty while learning, rest assured as we can go through it together.

When you’re learning a language, it is vital you practice it. Which is why talking, preferably in English, is very much welcomed during classes. It could be about anything; how your day went, your interests, your troubles etc.

Let’s have fun learning English!

【ひとこと】

Hello wonderful students! My name is Forrest Maynock. I am a native English speaker from America. I grew up in Washington state in a small town west of Seattle. I am currently a university student at Okayama University in the Global Discovery Program. In the Global Discovery Program I am focusing my studies in the fields of Political Science and Cultural Studies.

After I complete my study at Okayama University I will pursue a career of teaching English here in Japan. I am also highly interested in Journalism, and my dream is to split my time between teaching English and being an international journalist. What is a big dream that you have?

Some of my hobbies include watching movies, listening to music, and playing video games. My favorite film is Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai! I also enjoy reading books, manga/comics, and various newspapers and blogs. What are some of your hobbies?

As an English teacher I am here to help everyone learn and improve their English skills in all aspects. I feel confident that I can help any level of student in any area of study improve upon and accomplish their goals. My Japanese language skills are beginner level, but I am studying hard. Let’s learn together! Feel free to ask me any questions you may have, I am always available and willing to help out!

【ひとこと】

Hi! I’m Justine and I’m from the Philippines. I’m studying at Okayama University in the Discovery Program. The Philippines is one of the most heavily American-influenced countries in South East Asia, which means that many Filipinos know how to converse not just in our language, Tagalog, but also in English.

My family uses the English language a lot, and I have been using English ever since I learned how to read. I have been an English teacher before to many people from different parts of Asia such as Vietnamese, Thai, Koreans, Chinese, and also Japanese. I found my passion in connecting with students in a class and sharing valuable knowledge with them. I believe that a brilliant teacher learns from his students as well as they do from him.

I’ll be giving it my all to teach you English and I look forward to learning many things together in class!
