Happy Valentine's Day!

February marks many different occasions in America. There are so many great celebrations to consider but here are a few notable ones.

  • Groundhog day (Feb. 2) - A day to celebrate an old tradition of observing a groundhog (small animal) in order to determine when winter will end. It's a bit silly but its lots of fun.

  • Super bowl Sunday (1st Sunday)- The biggest American football game of he year. Not an official holiday but a big cause for celebration.

  • Rosa Parks day (Feb. 4) - A day to celebrate the revolutionary acts of Rosa Parks, who had a great positive impact on the African American community in the USA

  • Valentine's Day (Feb. 14) - A day to celebrate the people you love.

  • Susan B. Anthony Day (Feb. 15) - A day to celebrate Susan B. Anthony who help progress women's rights in the USA

  • Mardi Gras / Fat Tuesday (Last Tuesday) - A day of fun with festivals, parades and carnivals. It is seen as a last hoorah before the fasting of Lent (a Christian practice of showing restraint from the last Wednesday of February until Easter Sunday).


I learned that, in Japan, National Foundation Day and the Emperor's Birthday are both in February. What do you do to celebrate these holidays? Are there other holidays in February? Come share with us at Amity!

アミティーのレッスン♬

こんにちは。
英会話アミティー福山校です。

英会話習得には「量と継続」が必須です!
アミティーなら、続けられる楽しいiLesson、充実した教師陣(外国人教師が3名、日本人教師が2名勤務しています)とサポート体制で、お子さまの英語力をアップさせます。

本日は、アミティー福山校の生徒をご紹介いたします。
毎週火曜日17:40~(担当講師:Fiona先生)と、毎週木曜日17:40~(担当講師:Adam先生)に通っている土井たかひろ君(3歳)です。
今現在、プラクティカルコース(外国人会話レッスン)を週2回受講されております。親子クラスです。

先週のお話し。いつものように、元気よく「Hello!!」とアミティーに来てくれた、たかひろ君。レッスンが始まるまで時間があり、先生が来るのをお教室で待っていました。
お母様もちょうどその時、先生とお話しをされていて、お部屋にはたかひろ君一人で待っていました。
たかひろ君がいるお教室から可愛らしい声で歌う英語の歌が聞こえてきました。レッスンでみんなで歌うたかひろ君の一番大好きな歌です。
英語の歌を一人、何度も何度も練習している姿には、教師やお母様方みんな、ほっこりしておりました。

アミティーだから出来ること、英語の音やリズム、身近な単語や基本表現など、さまざまなアクティビティーを通して自然にインプットし、英語をごく日常的な「ことば」として自然に身につけることができます。
幼い頃から外国人教師と身近に接することが出来るのもアミティーだから出来ることの1つです。

アミティー福山校では、「楽しく始めて、高い英語力を身につけられる」英会話教室を目指し、日々精進しております。

一度、アミティー福山校へ来校しませんか?
スタッフ一同、心よりお待ち申し上げております。

Let's make it a game!

Hello everyone,

Today I bring you a challenge to make learning English more fun. Start by choosing three rewards for each time you reach a goal. The rewards should get better and better. I'd suggest something like a candy bar for finishing level one, a pastry for level two, and a 31 ice cream for level three. Here is how you play.

Players will do certain tasks to receive points. When you have collected 15 points you will level up. Every time you level up, you can get your reward. Here are some activities to earn points, however feel free to create your own activities and/or change the point values to whatever you think is fair. Remember the ultimate goal is to learn while having fun.

Suggested Activities:

Learn a new word (2 points): When you hear or read a new word write it down. Try to memorize its meaning. If in seven days you canstill remember, gain 2 points.
Complete a work sheet (1 point per page): You can find many great worksheets online or if you are alredy an Amity student, you can use the HOP, STEP, JUMP series of books we offer.
Talk to a foreigner (3 points): If you can find a foreigner who speaks English, say hello and ask them a question. Easy 3 points! If you don't know any foreigners around your area, come visit our school and feel free to talk to us.
Read a book (1 point per page): There is no requirement to what kind of book, as long as it is in English. You can easily read 15 pages of a children's book to instantly level up!
Take an English class (3 points): If you are a stundent here at Amity or anywhere else. After you finish your lesson, gain 3 points.

This is a fun way to level up your English skills and anyone can do it. If you're a parent reading this, try to motivate your child to play. If you're a student, challenge your friends. I hope this tip will help you improve your English and reach your goals.

Doggy Expressions

There are a lot of silly expressions in English. Some of them seem very different from their true meaning. For example there are many expressions with the word dog in them, here are some.

Work like a dog - To work very hard

Go see a man about a dog - an expression used as an excuse to leave (sometimes used to say "I need to use the restroom")

As sick as a dog - To be very sick

My dogs are barking - My feet really hurt

Dog-ear - To bookmark or fold the corner

Dog days - Nice warm days when we have relaxing fun

These are just a few but there are so many examples. Can you think of any? Let's think of some together. Join Amity today!
