September 2018

Here is the recap of the September 2018 Komo’s English@Sanriku.

  • Total Participants : 30 (among them, two were new)
  • Volunteer coaches : Total 8 (full participation 5, partial participation 3)

One of our Japanese proverbs says, “Equinox marks the end of extreme heat and severe cold.” But around the time of the equinox, we tend to see rather big fluctuations in temperature. This week was such a week, on Friday, the weather in the Sanriku area was nice and sunny. We held our session at our usual venue, Rikuzentakata Global Campus. Ms. M, who is in the upper grade at her elementary school, wrote a recipe of a dish she created in English. Ms. Y, who’s been a student in the adult group at Komo’s English since the beginning, renewed her objectives. With the volunteer coach’s help, she read some of the English books checked out from the Hamayuri Mobile Library.
On Saturday, some of the classes were full but all participants had good lessons. The regulars made progress on the topics of their choosing. There were also two new participants. We had an initial hearing with them to find out what they are interested in and determined the course of study going forward. The two students came to the class through referrals. We are appreciative for the introduction to the new students.
It was a beautiful autumn day. Those coaches who had extra time went outside to take care of the camellia trees our volunteers planted. In the evening, we cocked Ms. M’s recipe from Friday. We had great fun.

During Sunday morning, all the students worked on the topics each were interested in and concluded September Komo’s English. On the way home, we had ice cream at Ipponmatu Chaya (Ipponmatsu Cafe) since it was quite warm day (Yum!).

See you next month!
