Online English lesson

Featured

この夏、多くのNY駐在員が日本へ帰国しました。同時にNY 現地生徒さんだった皆さんが日本からのオンラインレッスンに切り替わることになりマティソンイングリッシュは月〜土まで朝6時よりレッスンを開始しています。

そんな私達ですが来週7/16〜7/22間はマティソンイングリッシュが主催する  [マティソンファームステイ]の開催の為、休講になります。

アメリカ,ニューヨークの大草原で繰り広げられるこの牧場体験は今後このブログでも更新していきたいと思います。どうぞ宜しくお願いします!

Getting together with students half way around the world is great. We love that we do this everyday.

We will miss everyone who is taking lessons from us for  a next couple weeks to restart Farm Stay program.

Please keep an eye out for our blog post about how it’s going.

Be Different!

This is a pic from our farm in Richland, NY.
One of the chickens lays eggs like the white one in the middle.
It’s actually a small chicken.
Being different means you are special! Don’t be afraid to be a different one even if you are a little CHICKEN!!19702318_10155539960993417_1951572938151002312_nMattison Farm Stay starts on 7/16.
Our students will go to pick up these eggs!!
私達のマティソン牧場からの写真です。
放牧されている鶏の一匹は写真の様な白くて大きな卵を産みます。
その鶏、実はとっても小さいのですが。周りと違うという事は素晴らしい事です!たとえCHICKEN(=弱虫さん)でも周りと「異なる」ことは恐れてはいけません(笑)
マティソンファームステイ開催は7/16からです。
今回の参加者はみんなこの卵を拾いにいきます!

Preparations are ongoing at Mattison Farms.
We visited Mattison Farms this weekend to finalize our program.
マティソン牧場の夏の牧場体験の準備を進めています!
今週末は牧場を訪れ現地の皆さん、家族と打ち合わせをしてきました。

Everything is  in place.
We’re all excited about this program.
We can’t wait to have our students there!
着々と準備が整い、プログラム開催が待ち遠しくなってきました。

Let summer begin!!
さぁ!夏がやってくる!

New Start!

Spring 2013

4 years have passed since I moved back to NY in 2013.

Starting Mattison English in NY from scratch after closing it in Japan was no easy task.
But like this pic right before we left Japan, my lifetime partner Mio and I  both kept our chins WAY up high.

Thanks to everyone for all your support.
4 years after moving back to the US, we’re here today with over 100 students in Harrison, NY + Skype students in Japan.

We have a great summer Farm Stay 2017 going this year, and we’re just thrilled to be working with Mattland Farm and Mattison Corner Farms on that project.

As I was doing in this picture, looking up at the beautiful cherry blossoms as my witness, I promise to do my best for all of our students and family.
Without any of you we would be nothing.

Thanks everyone!

Using Your Imagination☆想像力

This is a post by one of our young students. I think he is so creative!
“I made this collage to show my idea about Eye-Catching.”
“I sometimes go fishing with my dad. That’s how I got the idea.”
Our kids are so cool!
