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。

Watch the Student Made Videos

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。

Back to School 2020

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!

Let’s get ready!

After 2 weeks off due to cancelling our summer program, “Mattison Farm Stay”, we are ready to get back to work fully charged!

During our 2 weeks off, we got a lot done and were able to relax some. It was a great time to think about our students and how we want to provide the best way to improve their English skills from kindergartners to college students as well as business clients.

We appreciate our students’ trust and hard work even through this pandemic. As NY opens up, we will continue to welcome students as well as newcomers in a clean sanitized environment and online.

See you all soon.

Water Rocket Science

ここNYでは既に夏休みが始まり、マティソンへも元気な子供たちが英語を学びながら色んなアクティビティを体験しに来てくれています。
今回はBaking SodaとVinegarを使ったロケットサイエンスに挑戦です。

120分レッスンの開始は、先ずはロケット制作から。
TPR(Total Physical response) ;英語を耳で聞き、手を動かし作業を進める。わからない時は質問。羽の付ける位置やデザインなど皆説明を聞き逃さないように真剣に取り組んでいました。

そしていよいよロケットが完成し、公園へ移動~。
自分の作ったロケットがどのように発射するのか早く打ち上げたくて仕方ない様子のみんな。
このロケットはBaking SodaとVinegarが反応しCO2が発生しその気体の圧力で勢いよくロケットが発射します。講師の説明をしっかり聞き、危険のないように注意を払いいざ発射!
想像以上の迫力に子供達も大興奮!

お酢が服に飛び散るハプニングもありましたが、今回のアクティビティで英語や理科がますます好きになってくれたと思います。

Look at their smiles!
It’s hard not to be excited about launching rockets into the air.
This activity was a success. Everyone built their own rocket from scratch and each of them left the launch pad and flew high up into the air! Each of the participants were so into building their rocket they lost track of time.

We studied about the 2 processes used in launching the rockets. The chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar took a bit longer than using the air pump but it was great to hear the screams of surprise when the rocket blasted off.

These TPR activities are perfect for getting everyone involved, speaking and learning new vocabulary and natural expressions!

MOVING☆教室引越し

We are moving.

Empty shelves. After 4 years of teaching English in Harrison, NY, we are relocating Mattison English to our new home in Harrison, NY.
We appreciate all the opportunities we had that led us to where we are about to start.

From next week on July 2, we will start our lessons from our home in Harrison, NY.
We are looking forward to having lessons as we had back then in Japan; outdoor, cooking, and weekend activities.
We are so looking forward to starting from our home.

空っぽの棚。ハリソン駅前教室での4年の月日が流れ、来月7月からはマイホームでのレッスンを開始します。駅前教室とマイホーム間の距離は100m程。生徒さんの事を一番に考え5月に購入した家です。ハリソン駅からも徒歩3分。日本からの来客も歓迎します!

ここに至るまでの色んな方とのご縁に本当に感謝しています。これからは自宅で日本で行っていた様な屋外アクティビティ、クッキングそして週末アクティビティなどを組込んだレッスンも加えていきたいと思っています。
来週からのレッスンを楽しみにしています。

Last day
