Hello Everyone,My name is Andres, but you can call me ANDY.
I am Canadian currently living with my wife and children in Japan.
Though I was born in South America I lived in the USA and Germany before moving to Canada.
I can speak Spanish, German, English and some Japanese.
My first year in Japan was quite difficult trying to adjust and communicate with others butpeople in Japan are extremely patient and kind which made it easier for me to fit in.
I love sports and have practiced a few. I am currently into cycling and Taekwondo.In 2014 my wife and I created a Taekwondo group in our city. Since then, I have taughtEnglish and Taekwondo to children and Adults. I have a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Designbut after I started teaching in Japan, teaching became my passion. At the time, I am working Onlinewhich I thought was quite different from face to face classes. To my surprise, it is as good and at timeseven better.
I know there are lots of people willing to improve their English skills out there but do not nowwhere to start. Let me tell you, nothing compares to learning from the comfort of your own home.It is easy, it is convenient and fun. I am looking forward to hearing from you!!

2 英会話上達のコツ

People learn languages for different reasons. You must learn a language, try to enjoy the process. It can be a very frustrating journey if you dislike having to study something you are not passionate about.On the other hand, people who choose to study a language might achievebetter results because they like what they are doing. If there is something that can increase anyone’s chances to be better at learning languages is to have fun while doing it.
Having said that, if the system, the teacher and the context are fun you can then move to your number 2 priority: Repetition.
It is quite easy to forget what you learn in a short period of time and if the information is not used in a practical situation, the input in your head will soon be gone. It is important that you go back over things you have learned to make it part of your memory. That is how you learned your mother tongue in the first place. So, try writing notes and take them with you everywhere you go and read them anytime. This will reinforce your memory and you will be able to have more natural output next time you have to use it. Have fun and repeat, repeat, repeat!

Living in Japan has been for me an exciting experience. I like the country, the people and culture. Every person I talk too is a new opportunity to lean and connect. Language is culture and through people you can learn both. I can’t wait to be able to help you achieve your goals learning English.
Hope to see you all very soon!

Hello, my name is Damian Spratley. I am 49 years old and I am from England. My hometown is Colchester. This is my second time to live and teach English in Japan. I am very happy to be living in Japan again. I am a cat lover, and my hobbies include hillwalking (sometimes even mountaineering!) and cycling. I am also a lover of good food and I always love to talk about food. So, this is another reason why I am very happy to be in Japan again!

I believe that the way to improve English skills is through interaction in a way that is both fun and interesting. Learning new words and grammar is of course important and an essential part of the tests, but it is only through being able to speak and interact that we are able to memorise these things more easily.
As a native speaker, I will help you with speaking, listening and practising conversation and will help you with your understanding and help you on your way to become more fluent and sound more natural.

The best way to quickly improve your English is to spend at least a few minutes practicing every day. Immerse yourself as much as possible every time you study, and challenge yourself to listen to, read, and even say things in English that you think might be too difficult for you. If you want to speak English fluently, you need to make it an essential part of your everyday life. Come and speak to us in the English lounge as much as possible watch your improvement.

3 学生へのメッセージ

There’s an expression in English: “Use it or lose it,” which basically means if you don’t practice, you might forget what you have studied. The best way to remember new words is to use them right away so it will stay in your memory. When you learn a new word, try to say it in sentences a few times over the next week and you’ll never forget it. Come in and say hello anytime and don’t worry about your level of English. The only way to improve is to try and that is the first step in anything we do in life.
