September 2019

As previously announced, the Lets’s Talk Foundation is changing its status from a legal entity to a community based “Let’s Talk (hanasou) Community.” Donations to the foundation are no longer accepted as we have started to close the books and undergo legal procedures. When the legal and accounting processes are complete, the foundation’s corporate status will dissolve. Despite the changes, our activities will continue as before.

We held our regular Komo’s English@Sanriku in September, 2019, and we have been rewarded with many accomplishments.

  • Participants : 27
  • Volunteer coaches : 9

We held the Friday evening session at the Rikuzentakata Global Campus. We had a full house of students from elementary/middle school age to adult. The session is set up such that each participant can bring his/her own English study agenda so that volunteer coaches can provide one-on-one coaching. Instead of making the lessons formal teaching sessions, the coaches run them in an advisory format. This allows us cultivate the communication skills of students by providing one-on-one coaching. We also consider small talks during lessons important communication learning opportunity. Most of all we have fun at each lesson.

Day care facility visit on Saturday afternoon is no exception. This month we joined the event along with the volunteer coaches. We enjoyed the show put on by the residents and we danced together. When the residents sang “Furusato (hometown)” in English, which they rehearsed, we were moved to tears.

On Saturday evening, we hosted the first “Wine & Whisky English Club in Rikuzentakata” (“W&W”). We had 5 local participants and 4 volunteer coaches joining this first event. Our theme ‘wine this month’ were of Tasmanian Devil’s Corner. Our English lessons encompassed over some of the sensual expressions to go with wine drinking. We welcome provisional attendees and their opinions to make club events more interesting.

This month’s Komo’s English was held on the same weekend as the event held for elderly people. We thank those who joined us for our English lesson despite your busy schedule.

See you next month!
