There Is English Everywhere!!


We started the week with this video: I see English!


Spending time throughout your day connecting with the English around you is a great way to practice your English and say it: out loud, under your breath, in  your head!


This is a big week: From Shinjuku To The World!


The English that I see around me in Japan is usually positive, encouraging and uplifting! I get coaching throughout my day!


Practice your English and say it out loud, under your breath, in  your head!


Have a good one!

There’s some thought provoking English!




I love this! Swans are glamorous!


Black swans are native to Australia!

Some facts from Wikipedia:

A mature Black Swan:

–measures between 110 and 142 centimetres (43 and 56 in) in length

–weighs 3.7–9 kilograms (8.2–20 lb).

–has a wing span  of between 1.6 and 2 metres (5.2 and 6.6 ft).[2][3]

–has a long neck (relatively the longest neck among the swans) and is curved in an “S”-shape.


This week–look for English that is around you! Check it out and catch the meaning!


Have a good one!

High! vs High! vs High!

“High” refers to height. The shelf is too high for me to reach.

“High” means very happy. I am still high from winning the lottery!

“High” is a physical state of the mind and body from doing drugs.


Here are some questions for listening comprehension:



When did this happen?

Where was I going?

What was the woman wearing?

What did it say? Where did it say it?

What does it mean?

What do I understand about lettering in Japan?

What is the caution that I give? Why?

Why should foreigners in Japan not get upset?


Have a good one!
