Creative Photo Challenge Videos

We believe, when people enjoy doing something, they will naturally become curious, more motivated, and get better at it.
楽しんで取り組むという事は、興味を刺激しそれがモチベーション向上となり、自然に上達に繋がると思っています。

We are using the photos from our “Photo Challenge” in our lessons. Students are creating videos out of the pictures in which they can be descriptive and creative with their English by writing captions and in some cases even poems.
この夏に行ったアクティビティ”Photo Challenge”の写真を日々のレッスン内で活用をしています。ハンズオンアクティビティとし、生徒さんと一緒にビデオを作製をし、叙景的でクリエイティブな英語表現、また詩のようなキャプションを完成させる生徒さんもいます。

Each photo is displayed only for 10 seconds, so it is a challenge to read each caption within that amount of time. Try it and then try it again. Let’s see if you become faster at reading.
1コマの写真には10秒しか時間が取れまず、1コマのキャプションを10秒で読み取るのはチャレンジです。何度もトライしてみてください。速読の力も一緒につけましょう。

Here comes the sun! As you begin a new school year, we hope you build new trails and seek new horizons.

NY is ready for students to start a brand new school year. Every student is excited yet anxious to see what is about happen. The schools have their own unique learning styles to keep their learners safe and provide the education they need.

We, Mattison English stand by our students and support whatever challenges they may have to face this time of the year.

Stay curious, surround yourself with wisdom…..and let’s accept a new culture and language! No matter what, it’s going to be a great year. Let’s hop on the boat and start the journey!

🐥Easter Week 2019

Happy Easter to everyone!

We are enjoying our annual Easter egg coloring throughout the week. We love to pull out each student’s interest to make it into a deep conversation while we color eggs. Seems like they are more comfortable talking about their lives when we are just chatting like this.
今年の感謝祭はとても遅く4/21です。マティソンでは毎年好例のエッグカラーリング週😉まったりとした自然な雰囲気があるからこそ話したい伝えたい…と思える。片言の英語で必死に伝えようとする生徒さんがとても愛おしく、癒され、教える側が逆にパワーをもらっています💖

週末まで続くこのアクティビティ。楽しませていただきます🤗

“机だけににかじりついて勉強してるのだ〜れ”

<Who still studies English only at the desk?🤷 >

Every activity lends itself to English learning😊. We really enjoy seeing how our students grow from hands on learning.
ここマティソンではどんなアクティビティでも英語習得につながっていきます。

We spent our Saturday and Sunday building and preparing our vegetable beds. We’re excited to use these to add another dimension to our lessons.
この週末はベジタブルベットを作りました💖未来を考える若者のための自然環境、地球温暖化、サステイナブルライフを考えるレッスンに活用しようと思っています🐝🌱🍅🍒

Holiday Season Activity!

Last week, our students asked, ” When do we make ornaments this year?”

Today, we have officially started making ornaments in our classes.

We write our names and the date on the back of each ornament to help remind us later of the struggles and accomplishments we had throughout the year.

Holidays like these are times to remember and make even more special memories. We hope to share our family traditions with all of our students as well.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

This spring,  we had special guests from Japan! Currently, they are our online students taking lessons every week from Japan. They flew from Japan using their spring recess.
It was so nice to see them in person!
Mattison English is so proud that many students stay connected with us and visit us from halfway around the world.
We believe the strong teacher and learner connection is one of the really important keys to improve toward anything they want to achieve on any level.

日本からのスペシャルゲストは現在オンラインレッスンで受講中の姉妹!春休みを利用しNYの私達に会いに来てくれてました。2年ぶりに直接こうやって対面した二人はとても大きく成長してました。
こうやって地球の反対側からでも繋がっている、そして遥々会いに来てくれる生徒さんが毎年いるという事はマティソンにとり本当に嬉しいことです。
何を学ぶにしても、どんなレベルで学ぶにしても、教える人と学ぶ人の心がしっかりつながっている事は大きな飛躍につながるポイントだと日々感じています。
