Autumn to winter! Weather has been changing a lot these days~
We did about weather~~~ ☀☔☁☂

How’s the weather? / What’s the weather like today?

It’s sunny! It’s cloudy, it’s rainy, it’s stormy, it’s dry, it’s wet, it’s clear, it’s damp, it’s humid, it’s freezing, it’s boiling!, etc.

Let’s put some verbs!
The sun is shining, the rain is falling down/ it’s raining, it’s snowing, it’s thundering, there’s a lighting! (Thunder = 聞こえる、Lighting = 見える)

We practiced reading temperature (eg. 14 degress Celsius)
Q- What’s the weather like in London?
A- It’s rainy and it’s 6 degrees. It’s cold.

Keep warm everyone! ❆

16:00 ~ 17:00 2 Students

We practiced the different ways of using the word “Right”.

For example;
-Turn at the right corner.
-He left right away.
-Are you all right?

One more which we use in casual conversation is asking for confirmation;
Q- You going to the VELCO party, right?
A- Right! (Means Yes!)

Q- You went to the Halloween party, right?
A- No, I couldn’t.

Yeah/ yes の代わりにも Right 使えます~
(I use it a lot when I free talk ✌)

19:00 ~ 20:00 5 Students
20:00 ~ 21:00 5 Students

We talked about what’s your plan for the coming new year holidays?
Some students has some really good travel plans! Going to Hokkaido, or even Australia to a warmer place! Lucky!

We talked about what you eat to stay warmer and ended up talking about different kinds of soups. Tomato soup, corn soup, mushroom soup, pumpkin soup, even onion soup!

We also talked a little about Christmas and everyone got curious of what ginger bread man (ginger bread cookie) is! I had it just once in my life and didn’t give me a good impression so I’ll try to make it for the coming season! 🍪🎄🍪⛄

It’s getting colder but do make yourself come to VELCO to practice English!


18:00~18:50 1 student
19:00~19:50 1 student

I shared the story of mine how I taught myself English.
It sometimes hard to keep motivation when you learn something.  I went through that phase as well and talked about how I handled it.
Hope you found it useful information .

I also do believe everyone has their own best way to learn. So enjoy exploring and trying different methods and find the most appropriate approach to yourself!

Good luck!;)
