ああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああ

1月26日(火)にオーストラリアに向けて出発した、ターム留学第6期生(19名)からのメールレポート第2弾を掲載します。現地校での学習がスタートしてから1ヶ月が経ちました。  最初のうちはだいぶ苦労していた留学生たちですが、各種イベントや授業、昼休みなどを通して、友人も増えたようです。コミュニケーションも随分とれるようになり、それにともなって気持ちもポジティブになってきました。豪州特有の授業科目を楽しんでいる生徒もいるようです。これからがどんどん吸収できる時期に入ります。留学生の健闘に期待しています。  ターム留学担当へのメールを英語の原文のまま掲載しますので、ぜひお読み下さい(留学生の氏名はイニシャルに変えています)。

ああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああああHi, Mr. Kamakura. How are you today? When I lived here four weeks, I went to a lot of places. First weekend, I went to tennis center in Melbourne city. I watched tennis game and ate Melbourne's traditional food. I played tennis with my host sisters. First school day, I couldn't make friends, but now I can make a lot of friends. February 28 I will go to "Japanese Summer Festival" with my school friends. Second weekend, I visited my host mother's sister's home. I played tennis with her and her son. I also joined Beaconhills tennis club. Playing sports could make friends. All classes are spoken in English by teachers, so understanding is difficult. I have two favorite classes. One is "System Engineering." The other is "Physical Science." I like System Engineering class because we could make a lot of things. Now I make "Amplifier." Do you know amplifier? In Japanese, we call it "speaker." Physical Science teaches us "Our body making for muscles." February 14, I went to Valentin's party. I ate baked pig! By the way, today I went to the AAMI park to watch soccer game with my MEIHO friends and our group coordinator. I was very happy because I watched two soccer games. One is the Australian all-star soccer team V.S. semi-professional soccer players. This game's result was 3-2. Semi-professional soccer players won. Second was Melbourne Victory V.S. Adelaide United. I hoped Adelaide would win this game. This game was too hot game. Both teams skill were almost the same, but today's game's winner was Adelaide. So my guess was right. I enjoyed today's game a lot. And see you next time. Bye bye. From T.I.

Hi! Mr. Kamakura, How are you? I can now enjoy every day in Australia. When I arrived at Australia, I couldn't communicate a lot. But, I can make a lot of friends now. At school, I participate in a lot of classes; like Science, English, PE and so on. I like history class the best. This is because after school, history teacher and I talked about Japanese history and culture. It was so fun and more 30 minutes, we talked! I [students] will go camping next Tuesday and Wednesday. I'm looking forward to doing it! By the way, on every Friday, I have English session with my group coordinator. I always study [learn] Australian culture and so on. It is easy for me. This is because my coordinator is Spanish, so she always speaks English very slowly. On every Wednesday, Host brother, host sister and I play Karate at community club. This is very fun and interesting. Club's coach always says "Yoroshikuonegaishimasu" in Japanese at the club's beginning. And then, we [club] members have to repeat that again. Everyone speaks in various Japanese's tone of voice. So for that reason, it was so funny! Also, every Friday, I play badminton in Australian club. At club, I could make friends quickly! We talked about a badminton things such as a top athlete thing and so on. Most of the club members are the same age as me. But, I won all of the matches before the club. Anyway, to participate as a Japanese player is very cool! I am busy every day, you know? On Saturday, I rode horses which was so fun. Before riding horses, I had to brush horse's body. This was difficult for me. My host sister taught me how to ride horses. She can teach me in very plain English! So, I could ride horses easily! I couldn't run with horses, but to ride horses was so nice. I thought I could have a nice experience! My host mother runs cafeteria as a volunteer, so I helped her. She made sandwiches and sausage of bread. So, I baked sausage by BBQ instruction. I like outdoor [I'm good at outdoor], so my host mother said to me, "You are good at baking sausage and so on". I was very happy to hear that. And I thought that to help other people [my host mother] is very nice thing! On Saturday, my host family, host mother's old sister, her mother, father and I did BBQ at host family's house. This day, there were so many people there, so I was confused a little bit. We could enjoy and host mother's sister went to Japan one year ago, so she and I talked about Japan! I heard she liked Hello-Kitty and Okonomiyaki. She said I'd like to go to Japan again! On Sunday, host family and I went to Geelong such as a sightseeing. I saw a wonderful view. There were many cool buildings and it has a beautiful bays! Anyway, I could have a nice day and learned about Australian culture! Sincerely yours, Y.D.

Dear Mr. Kamakura First, I'm sorry for the delay in sending email. Long time no see. I am fine. I made some friends. My host family are kind and talkative. So, I am very comfortable. And I brought my guitar from Japan. I always play the guitar even in the morning. And my host brother also play the guitar every day with me. He likes music, so he can play the guitar, drums, base and piano!! He is so talented. Finally, I will tell the truth. I always speak Japanese with other Japanese students. But I think it is wrong because, I came here to learn English. So, I will speak English more from tomorrow! See you! K.K.

Hi, Mr. Kamakura. Thank you for your e-mail. I'm enjoying staying in Australia. I was surprised that already 1 month has passed! At Nunawading Christian College, We take Math, History, Science, English, PE, Health, Bible and Sport! Also, I chose taking Food and Design class. English and Bible classes are very difficult for me. But I can understand almost other classes! Especially, Math is very easy. During lunch time, I eat lunch and talk with my Australian friends or play sports. On February 23rd, we had a Swimming Carnival! We went to the Monash Aquatics Center by school bus. The pool was 50 meters long. One of my Australian friends said to me before we went to the pool, "We will go to the big pool that maybe you have never seen." But the pool was the same size as Meiho's pool. So, I said to him about that and said to him "Every summer we swim in PE class." He was very surprised. They don't have a pool at school. I took part in Open Boys 50 meters Freestyle. And I won the first prize in my race! But the second race's champion was faster than me. So I was the 2nd. It is regrettable that I lost. But I enjoyed swimming! Yesterday, I got a winning ribbon. My host family is Filipino. So they can speak English and Filipino. I eat Australian food and Philippine food. Philippine food is very similar to Japanese food. For example, I eat rice every day and they love fish. And sometimes I watch Philippine TV with my family. Of course, I can't understand what the speaker says. But sometimes my host mother translates from Filipino to English. So it is fun. Also, I go to church every Friday and every Sunday. There are many Filipinos. I have many Filipino friends! Friday the 19th, I went to the barbershop with my host father. It was the first time for me to cut my hair in foreign country. To talk with barber was little difficult for me! But I think my English is improving day by day. See you soon. From G.H.

Dear Mr. Kamakura, FAMILY Rose family has 5 people: Ian, Nicky, Chelsea, Matthew and Leo. Ian is my host father. He is 44 years old. He works for an electricity company. He likes to play sports and play the guitar. He goes to gym and play rugby often. He is a good father because he always takes care of everybody. Nicky is my host mother. She is 40 years old. She works for an electricity company, too. She likes to go shopping. She can cook well. They are very delicious. Chelsea is my host sister. She is 17 years old. She is a high school student. She does martial arts which mixes karate and using weapons (sword and other weapons). And she has a black belt. So she is very strong. She likes watching TV, listening to music and having collection of crystals. Her most favorite TV program is "Walking Dead" because she loves zombie. Sometimes she makes fake blood. I think she is a strange girl. Also she is a kind lady. Matthew is my host brother. He is 14 years old. He is a junior high school student. He likes to play games and play rugby. He practices rugby with his father often. And he likes to rap. When I speak wrong English, he teaches me what I should speak. Leo is from China. He is an exchange student. He is 15 years old. He is a high school student. He likes soccer and watching Japanese anime. Sometimes I play soccer with Leo and also talk about Japanese anime. And he is a funny guy. Every dinner time, always we are laughing because he says good jokes.

HOME In Japan, my mother makes breakfast, lunch and dinner. In Australia, I have to make breakfast and lunch myself. Sometimes we do not eat lunch. In Japan, we use some plates because we divide meal. In Australia, one or two big plates are put in the center of a table. And we take meal by ourselves. In Australia, my host family's house is bigger than my house in Japan. In Japan, when we go into a house, we must take off shoes. In Australia, we can walk in house while wearing shoes. In Japan, when we wash dishes, I do not save water. In Australia, when we wash dishes, we save water to rinse dishes. Water is important in Australia. In Japan, my parents usually come back from work around 8:00. In Australia, host parents usually come back home around 6:00. In Japan, trains are used by a lot of people. In Australia, trains are not used so much. Cars are most useful. In Japan, I sleep in futon. I sleep alone. In Australia, I sleep in bed. There are two beds in the room. I use one bed and my host brother use the other one. And before I go to the school, I have to clean the bed. In Japan, I take shower for 20-30 minutes. Sometimes I take a bath for 30-50 minutes. In Australia, water is very important. So we cannot take a bath. And we cannot take a shower for such a long time. We take a shower for just about 5 minutes. So I prefer Japanese shower and bath.

SCHOOL In Japan, our class has 35 people. We take the same classes. But in Australia, a class has about 20 people. Everybody has own classes. In Japan, we have 10 minutes break between classes. And we have 50 minutes break between 4th period and 5th period. In Australia, we have just 2 minutes break between classes. But we have 20 minutes break between 2nd period and 3rd period. It is called recess time. And we have 50 minutes break between 4th period and 5th period. In Japan, we have to go to school on Saturdays. But in Australia, we do not go to school on Saturdays. And on Fridays, we have short schedule, we finish the school at 3:00. And then, we have an assembly. I think time schedule in Australia is better than that of Japan. I take classes such as English, math, science, history, health, literature, drama, PE and junior sports. The most boring subjects are science and junior sports. In science class, the teacher just talks for us. And we just copy the letters in the white board. I prefer Japanese science class. Junior sports is too boring because we just practice baton pass for relay and high jump. I want to do other sports. The most difficult subjects are English and literature. English is too difficult because NCC students already speak English well, so it is only natural that class is difficult for me. Literature is similar to English. But literature is more difficult than English. The most fun subjects are PE and drama. We can play sports in PE class. And I do not have to speak difficult English. I just speak easy English like "Good job" or "Don't mind". And we play sports with girls. I think that makes good moods. In Japan, teachers do not mix boys and girls in PE class. So sometimes PE classes are done by only boys which is a little bit violent. I prefer Australian PE. It is very fun. In drama class, we play dramas. It looks difficult for Japanese students but I have tried it once. Then it was very fun. And there is no drama class in Japan. So I get excited. In Australia, math, history and health are not so different from Japan. But sometimes I cannot understand because teachers teach in English.

The other day, we went to the city because there was Chinese festival held. There were a lot of people. It looked like thousands. Fireworks and fire performances were very good. But it was too cloudy, so I could not enjoy so much. Next day, we celebrated Chinese New Year. When we were eating Chinese foods, Leo's mother called him by cellphone. They looked enjoying talking at first. But suddenly, Leo cried. Then I knew I and Leo are not the same. I will go back to Japan just 2 months later. But Leo will not go back to China expect for vacation. He will go to university in Australia. And he will get a job in Australia. But his family is in China. I experienced too much fun stuff. So I must work harder. I still spend time with Japanese students during lunch time. But I will try to speak English with Nunawading students. From A. H. H.

【GSP】グローバルビジネス経験豊富な講師によるワークショップ!

IBMでの経験を語る稲田先生.jpgゼミ形式の対話型授業が基本.jpg

2月23日(火)、「21世紀(高2文系選択科目)」の授業で外部より講師(稲田昌秀氏)をお招きして、「異文化コミュニケーション力とは~グローバルビジネスの現場経験から~」と題したワークショップ(使用言語:英語)を実施しました。これは、普段学習している内容(「異文化協働力」「21世紀型スキルとイノベーション」etc.)に関して、実際に世界で活躍するグローバル・パーソンによるワークショップ型の授業を受けることで、更なる考察を深めると同時に、英語で積極的にコミュニケーションをとる態度を育成することを目的とした企画です。IBMやCorning、Applied Materialsなどのグローバル企業勤務を経てこられた稲田先生の豊富な体験談から、生徒は様々なことを学ばせて頂きました。以下、今回ファシリテーターを務めた本校ネイティブ教員による授業内容報告です。

The life experiences of other's is a powerful learning opportunity. This past week, our 21st Century students had exactly that with our most recent guest speaker. Mr. Inada, a true gentleman, shared his life story with our boys. After learning about his early days in Fukuoka and his journey to Tokyo and days at Yokohama National University, our discussion turned to Mr. Inada's career, which gave him the opportunity to develop his English abilities while working in Research & Development and Human Resources for international companies such as IBM and Applied Materials. There were two pieces of advice that he gave to our students that stuck out. The first, which he learned in a university theatrical performance class in Hawaii, is the importance of overcoming one's shyness. Through training, even the shyest of us can develop self-confidence that allows us to interact with, and speak in front of others. The second is the importance of building up conversation and communication skills, which are not only important in one's personal life but also necessary in one's professional life as well. These lessons are especially important for Japanese who often resort to silence in order to avoid any potential loss of face. Japanese speakers of English need to focus on conveying their ideas and interacting amiably, and through doing so, improve their English abilities and increase their life and professional opportunities. Mr. Inada is a clear role model for our students, who have benefited greatly through their opportunity to spend some time with him. Thanks a million, Mr. Inada.

【進路】OB懇談会を開催しました

OB懇談会1.JPGOB懇談会2.JPGOB懇談会3.JPG    

2月22日(月)6・7時間目に高校1・2年生を対象とした,本校卒業生との懇談会が実施されました。現役大学生である明法OBの方々が来校し,ご自身の大学生活や大学進学に向けたアドバイス,勉強方法について説明していただきました。生徒たちは明法OBである先輩方の話を真剣に聞き,質問を交わしながら大学進学について知ろうとしていました。各生徒自身の進路について深く考える良い機会になったかと思います。

講演していただいたOB   

  文系  T先輩 46 期 明治大学商学部商学科  

      O先輩 49 期 早稲田大学社会科学部社会科学科

  理系  I先輩 46 期 立教大学理学部数学科   

      O先輩 49 期 東京学芸大学教育学部中等教育教員養成課程

それぞれの先輩方の残した印象的な言葉

46期 T先輩 「勉強のやり方がわからなければ,迷わず先生に尋ねてみる」

46期 I先輩 「毎日少しでも勉強する習慣をつけ,自分なりの勉強方法を身につける」

49期 O先輩(文系) 「志望大学以上を目指す努力をし,興味ある学問に関する本を読む」

49期 O先輩(理系) 「今までに勉強した結果・量を可視化して自信にする」

講演していただいたどの先輩方も「普段の学校の授業を大切にすること」の重要性を説いていました。今までに実施されてきた様々なガイダンスでも同じですね。普段の授業を大切にできているか,今の自分を考えてみてください。十分大切にできている人,居眠りなどで大切にできていない人,色々な人がいるかと思います。もし大切にできていないのならば,もうすぐ学年末試験があり,これから新学年にあがる今が変わるチャンスではないでしょうか。 また,大学選びについても,ただ有名な大学だから...といった選び方は避けるべきというアドバイスがありました。自分はこの大学に行ってこの学問を学びたい!という明確な意志を持つこと,そのために自ら大学の学部や学科の情報を得ること,そして自らの責任で志望する大学を選ぶことの大切さを伝えていました。

==========================================

After 3 weeks passed, I enjoy my life in Australia. At school, I really enjoy! On Fridays, I have science class (chemistry). In Japan, I think lecture is a main part of the class. However, in Australia, I think doing experiment is the major element of its class. I was very surprised at this difference. During lunch time, my host sister Eve (Edinburgh college student) invites me and we eat lunch with her and her friends. It is a good chance to talk!! I talk a lot there. That is fun! But originally, I hesitated because many girls were there! My school in Japan is a boys' school, so I usually don't talk with girls. But on this Friday, I could talk with many girls. Of course, I talked with boys a lot more!

Last Wednesday, I had swimming carnival. I took part in the medley relay as a backstroke swimmer. Our team won the medley relay! I was very glad. And I made a lot of friends (I'm sorry I couldn't take photos with my friends except swimming carnival and last day). It is my school rules. In Australia, many senior students talk to junior students, so I usually talk with different grade students. Of course I talk with the same grade students, too. I think it is good points in Australian schools.

At home I played origami with my host sister Eve the other day. She liked origami very much. I was very happy because I brought washi and chiyogami with me to tell Japanese traditional cultures. I handed these ones to her. She looked very delighted. And we sometimes do barbecue with my host family. Barbecue (camp fire) is very traditional in Australia! I experience Australian culture every day! It is so good!

See you in 2 weeks!

From R.T.

Dear Mr. Kamakura,

Hello! How are you? I'm really good. I have a nice experience and it's not so hot in Australia. This is my first time to go Australia. So arriving at Australia, I am very nervous. But, I can spend a cool experience now! "Don't be shy" and "Don't be afraid" are very important to study abroad. I suggested that "keep smiling" is also important thing. I have two resolutions. First, I would like to skill up my English Conversation. Second, I would like to communicate with foreigners and enjoy every day! I would like to complete my resolutions! Arriving at Melbourne, I went to Australian McDonald's. I am very surprised that the size of hamburgers and Drink is so huge! But, I think it was just so cool! And then, I went to Edinburgh College and meet host family! My host family consists of four, father, mother, brother and sister. Host sister can ride horses and host brother can make games! In Edinburgh College, I am in the 9 grade, so math is so easy for me. English class is so difficult for me and to do assignments makes me very tired! Anyway, I am very happy to spend time there.

Sincerely, Y.D.

Hi, Mr. Kamakura.

I have come to Australia for two weeks. At first I couldn't communicate with foreigners. However, I can now communicate with foreigners better than before. My host family is very kind to me. They took me a lot of tourist resorts. For example I have been to Melbourne City twice. We went to a tennis park. I could enjoy there with my host family. But, I can't make friends well in my school in Australia. So I will try to talk to somebody from now. I want to report to you, "I made a lot of friends" next time.

A.G.

Hi, Mr. Kamakura. How are you?

Sorry to send e-mail is little late. I am little busy, but I enjoy staying in Melbourne, Australia! My host family is very nice! I like talking with them. Especially, I like talking with Randolf (my host brother). We are the same age and we both like soccer and tennis. I share the same room with him. Last weekend, I went to Melbourne city with my host family. We rode BIG Ferris wheel. We enjoyed the beautiful view. After coming back home, I made so-men for them. I think it was like Hiyasi-chuka. But my host family liked it. I was happy because Rocky (host brother) ate a second helping. I will make other Japanese food tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. And every Saturday, I go to a gym to play badminton with my host brother and his friends. To play badminton is little difficult for me, but I enjoy playing.

At Nunawading Christian College, I also made some friends. But I don't have many friends. I go to school by train. It is very slow and always late. But I like riding the train. This is because I can talk with my Australian friends on the train. I like talking with them.

G.H.

Hi, Mr. Kamakura. How is it going? I arrived in Australia. I have had a lot of fun in Australia. I have been learning more about Australia and English, for example, culture. There is little water in Australia, so I have to take a shower within four minutes! But I can take two showers, in the morning and at night. I also enjoy having time with my host family. My host family took me car movie theater on January 31, 2016. We watched Daddy's home. It was a funny movie. I laughed a lot there. I will continue to study hard. See you soon.

S.I.

Hello, Mr. Kamakura. How are you?

I am very happy because my host family is very kind and I had many interesting events during the last two weeks! On the first weekend, I watched rodeo!! This was my first time to watch rodeo. Many cowboys and cowgirls ride the bulls! It was very interesting! Then I visited my grandparents' house. Grandfather played the piano for me for two hours!! I was surprised that he has five bands! He is a good player. Last week was interesting, too. On Friday, I had swimming carnival! I joined the relay and I swam free style. We got the 2nd place! I was tired but it was fun. On Saturday, I visited my host mother's brother's house. His house is a good place, because it's in the countryside. The smell was fresh and there are lots of animals like Kangaroos and many kinds of bird... I could relax. We enjoyed BBQ and talking with the family! It was great! Sunday was my host family's dog's birthday. His name is Leroy. He is just one year old, but he is as big as me! He is very cute.

I am enjoying school life, too! The classes are very difficult to understand, but I understand a little like math, SOSE and science. I want to be able to understand all subjects! Also, I made ten or more new friends !! But I don't have any "girl" friends... During lunch time, I enjoy playing soccer, basketball and talking with friends! Heritage College is a good school!! I appreciate my host parents, too! Thank you!

See you. From N.S.

Hello. How are you? I'm good. I am very happy because I have made four friends. I'll introduction about especially closer friends. They are Seth and Shown. They are brothers. They are fun to be with. They can play some sports and make me smile by saying joke. I'm always playing with them.

Hi, Mr. KAMAKURA! How are you?

I enjoy Australian life. Host mother is so kind. Every morning, my mother makes breakfast for me. It's so good! She is a real chef!

I went to party twice! First party was my mother's sister's daughter's birthday party. Second party was so funny and crazy party. Chef of this party was mother. She was working so hard.

I make friends in NCC. In NCC students are very friendly, so I can make friends without any troubles. I have friends who come home together. One of the friends who is a girl can speak Japanese well.

Once a week, we have sports festival. They are so exciting to me! Last week, I went to play table tennis. Now I can play table tennis every Friday! I'm so happy. At school, I am making friends gradually.

See you in two weeks! From H.O.

How is it going? I am good now.

Three weeks have passed since we left Japan. I made 3 friends and they are 3 close friends now! I can't believe it because I am a quiet guy! I will talk a lot and make more friends as much as I can.

By the wa, speaking about host family, they are good people, too. My host parents are kind, friendly. And my host brother&sister are kind as well. Sometimes, my family takes out me somewhere, like a soccer match! I went to a soccer game yesterday with my father, brother, father's friend, and my family's relatives. So, do not worry about me. Everything is getting good now.

Sincerely yours, D.A.
