PLS Picnic 2018 Part 3

I would like to introduce to you three other students that had participated in the PLS Picnic on May 13, 2018.

The first student was Saya. In the picture below, you can see her with her father (nicknamed "Mits"). She won second place in the God's Eye contest. When her name was announced as the winner, both she and her father jumped for joy. She looks like a "Daddy's Girl," doesn't she?


I was able to talk to Saya's father during lunch. He spoke English very well. I was able to connect with him immediately. He was very "down to earth." This expression means "to be very friendly and open to talk sincerely about many topics."

Another student that came to the picnic was Taisei, his mother and his grandmother. In the picture below, you can see how proud his mother was of her son. I was able to capture the right expressions, don't you think?


Finally, the other student that attended the picnic was Sakuya. She came with both her Mom and Dad. At first, Sakuya was so shy to speak English; however, as she became more relaxed, she began to converse with me and the other teachers. Below is a picture of Sakuya and her mother (the woman with the blue and white shirt).


Thank you Saya, Taisei, and Sakuya for studying at Ecole Hibari. We love you and your family.



2018 PLS Picnic Part 2

I would like to introduce you to one of the families that participated in the PLS picnic that was held on May 13, 2018. They are the Tsuruta Family. Minato is my student. He has a sister named Reno. She is really cute. isn't she? Below is a picture of them.


I am glad they they were able to experience a wonderful day speaking English with me.

Thank you for coming, Tsuruta Family!

2018 Eiken Test

For those students who are taking the June 3rd Eiken tests at Ecole Hibari, I highly recommend you to start reviewing everything that I taught you in your Eiken Preparation classes.

Your tests are "just around the corner." So please do not procrastinate.

Thank you.


PLS Picnic 2018

Hello everyone.

On May 13, I and five students and their families went to a park in Hamadayama and had a wonderful picnic. There were around 75 children and many English teachers who participated in this event. Below is a group picture of the participants.

There were many games that the children played. They all did their best to communicate in English with the teachers there. One of the games was called the Snack Race. As you can see in the picture, the children had to grab a bag of chips with their mouths and then complete the race by running to the finish line. It was so much fun for their parents to watch.

Another fun game was called the Basket Game. The object of the game was to put as many balls into a basket that each teacher was carrying on their backs. It was very challenging for the kids -- especially when the teachers were running as the kids tried to catch them. Below are three teachers getting ready before a barrage of kids started chasing them.

Unfortunately, it began to rain later in the day, so the picnic had to end earlier than was originally planned. However, we were all able to enjoy eating our picnic lunches and playing many wonderful games. Most of all, we could all communicate in English!

I am so proud of all the children who participated in this year's PLS Picnic.

2018 PLS Picnic

Hello everyone.

PLS (Pacific Language School), which is a school that we are affiliated with, will be holding their annual picnic. Ecole Hibari will be participating in this event.

I went to this picnic in 2012 with five students and their families. Below is a picture of one of the PLS teachers playing a water gun challenge. The kids had so much fun. This was one of the many activities that were held. Everything was conducted in English.

2012 PLS picnic

There were many teachers (including me and Henk) to play with the participants. The children were chasing us. We were fast, but the kids managed to catch us.

This is a picture of me and the founder of the PLS curriculum that Ecole is using in our children's program. His name is Mr. Ray Ormandy. I hope that you will be able to meet him.

The picnic will be held on May 13, Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For those students and family members who are interested in participating in this fabulous event, please contact us.


Parents' Cafe

Hello Parents.

For the next two months, we will be holding a Parents' Cafe. What this means is that the teachers will be meeting with the parents of our children's classes.

We want to talk about the progress of your children individually. We are going to discuss your child's strong points as well as his or her weak ones. Most importantly, we want to advise you on how to help and encourage your children at home.

Henk, Peter, and I are looking forward to meeting you.

See you soon.
Andy Hayashi
