Want free materials for your kids classes?

I am clearing out one of my English schools. I have family and children`s VHS videos, kids games for learning English, family games, textbooks and others. It is too much to go through and itemize and take individual orders, but if you are interested I will send you a random “care package” of stuff COD, Be sure to send me your address if interested. I don`t teach children anymore so as the furniture store guy says: “Everything must go!”
I can send it within Japan. I`m not sure COD works outside of Japan. So within Japan only please.

U Can`s Speak Master


I was chosen to represent U Can`s Speak Master product.  They interviewed me, and asked me why Japanese sometimes cannot speak English even after 6-10 years of study.

They also asked me my opinions on shadowing and how that can help students to improve their listening, speaking, pronunciation and grammar.

Today I met with some  U Can representatives and we had a photo session.

It has been a busy few weeks!
