About Me
italki teacher since Dec 10, 2021
I teach English in Japan. I'd love to tell you about British culture, people and similarities we share with Japan. As an OJT (on the job training) 職場 English teacher, I taught English to employees at an automotive parts manufacturing company to workers of different fields. イギリスのロンドン生まれで、子供の頃から日本の文化が好きだったので日本に住む事が夢でした。今、日本で子供と大人に英語を教えています。趣味は車と音楽ですが、人の趣味を聞いたりするのが好きなので、是非皆さんの趣味を聞かせてください。イギリスの雰囲気で紅茶を飲みながら一緒に楽しく英語のレッスンをしましょう。よろしくお願いします。

I have been practicing responding to questions with questions. The material we used today was a grid map with a lot of drawings, and we made a lesson with this like below: Mina sensei tells me bearings relevant to drawings (i.e. Somebody has to carry something from a "tractor" to a "barn", and he went "3E, 1N, and 3E"), and I answer what grid he starts and ends (i.e. 1A to 7B). The material itself was for kids, but still it's difficult. It is a good practice to reconfirm what I was asked. I am going to do things like that next lesson. Repeating is the best way to get used to something new.

The tutor is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. It is also good that the teaching materials are traditional and nostalgic.

Sorry it took time to get my headset fixed. I learned how different Japanese and Westerners are when it comes to answering questions. We are too much considerate, and when we are presented two options, we are bound to these two, and won't say "I like the third option". This is what happened to sensei. She asked her Japanese friend in a park if she liked playing in the trees or on a hill. She wanted to go home, but she was bound to "tree or hill", and couldn't say "I want to go home". It's nice that I can learn from real-life examples.

The topic was about phonetic alphabets. I learned the importance of reconfirming what they said.
