Merry Christmas!




Merry Christmas everyone. Thank-you for coming to my classes. Thanks to you, I have a job that I really enjoy. I have learned many things about Japanese culture, and I feel I have many friends. I have been so lucky to enjoy many gifts and souvenirs such as chocolates, cakes, cookies and even wine. While I appreciate your kindness very much, I think from next year I am going to cut down on the amount of sweets that I eat.

This year has been a great year. While nothing extraordinary happened, I am thankful to have my health and to be living in Japan. It has been my pleasure to teach English and see all of you improve little by little. Yes, ALL of you.

Have a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!

Blog Topic: Meals


1. New Phrase:

You are what you eat.

1. If you don’t eat healthy food, you will become unhealthy. You are what you eat.
2. If you eat fruits and vegetables everyday, you will become healthy. You are what you eat.
3. If you eat Big Macs everyday, you will become big. You are what you eat.






2. Let’s Read!

Today, in our Beginner Variety class, we talked about meals. Recently, I have been eating a lot of chicken. Chicken has lots of protein and is healthier than beef. Beef has a lot of fat and oil. I have chicken and veggies for breakfast almost everyday. For lunch, I usually go to the convenience store and buy chicken. Family Mart sells pieces of chicken individually. Finally, for dinner I eat chicken with a little rice and maybe bread. I want to build muscle, but I worry that I will become a chicken. They say, “You are what you eat”.



3. Challenge Time:
1. How many times a day do you eat?
2. What foods do you eat the most?
3. Do you like McDonald’s hamburgers?

  1. あなたは一日に何回食事をとりますか?
  2. あなたが一番たべる物はなんですか?
  3. あなたはマクドナルドのハンバーガーはすきですか?
