Practice the Pause.

It is very important to keep on practicing and using pause when reading and speaking. This way, your message is clear and easy to understand.

Also, pause whenever you are in doubt and remain calm at all times.

We can help you achieve that good pause when speaking, having a speech but most importantly, in reading out loudly.

Please come and join us to have a lesson here in Amity!

A few easy goals

A great way to motivate yourself or your someone else to study a language is to set goals. The sense of achievement is a great way to encourage learning more and continuing to improve your English. In case you have difficulty coming up with ideas for goals, here are some I like to use myself.

Beginner Level Goals

Once you think you have learned the basics and you have a decent vocabulary, try reading a children's book. I recommend books intended for children ages 0-5, regardless of your age. Remember that the children who these books are meant for are probably native speakers, so you are not expected to understand every word. But if you can understand the story and the grammar, you have improved your English a lot.

Keep an eye out for my next post where I'll give recommendations for intermediate level student's goals. If you need help reaching your goals, come join our classes here at Amity Fukuyama. I look forwarded to seeing you

Beat Around the Bush!

Here's another common expression. "Beat around the bush," is used to say take a lot of time to do something or to wait a bit too long.

A great example for this is the action that you have been thinking of taking for a long time. Maybe you have been considering taking a class or talking to an old friend. You might have thought "I should call Akiko to see how she is doing" but you think, "I'll call tomorrow, or next week" and you keep thinking I'll do it later. This is to beat around the bush.

Don't beat around the bush! Do it today. Call your friend, or take that class! Don't be afraid to take that risk!

The secret to sounding fluent

Hello everyone, welcome to the Amity news letter.

Todays is a special day. I'm about to share the biggest secret to help you sound fluent in English. So stick around and if you find this useful please let me know next time you visit our school in Fukuyama. Ok, so you might think that in order to sound native you have to know all the words, or that you have to have a perfect accent, or that you need to be able to talk without stopping to think. In reality, native people can't actually do any of those things (you probably can't even do that when speaking in Japanese). We are only more aware of it because it's not our native language and noticing these problems causes us to freeze up. Let's think about how to get around these issues from the perspective of a native speaker.

1. Crutches

If you're talking to someone in Japanese and you're asked a difficult question that maybe requires you to take a momment to think, do you think in complete silence? Probably not. You probably fill the silence with the sound えと。。。English speakers have something similar. It may change from country to country or person to person but you have probably heard someone say "um...". From now on try to fill gaps of silence with "um..."

2. Woops I forgot

Probably the best trick is to master the following sentence. "What was the word for X again?" (just replace X with a word in japanese, like 勉強する or even better with an explanation of the word in English). You'll end up saying something like this. "What was the word for 勉強する again?" or "What was the word for the activity you do in the classroom again?" This phrase makes it sound more like you have forgotten the word rather than you don't know. I use it all the time when speaking Japanese and it has gotten me a lot of compliments.

I hope these tips help you. For more recommendations keep checking the Amity news and come visit us at the school. See you!

Trick-or-Treat!

Halloween takes place on October 31 and is mainly celebrated by children in costumes. Children will put on costumes around dusk and walk through their neighborhoods knocking on doors and asking for treats/candy, by threatening minor pranks. This is where the expression "Trick-or-Treat" comes from. It literally means I will play a trick on you unless you give me a treat.

At this point in time playing pranks doesn't usually occur even if you don't offer treats, though some teenagers will still honor the unloved tradition.

Some other popular activities include attending Halloween costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, divination games, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories, as well as watching horror films.

It is a fun holiday! Why don't you celebrate with us? Join a Halloween Seminar today!
