レッスンレポート(Part9: Cook English)

2/2(土)に料理で学ぶ英会話"Cook English"を開催しました。普段のレギュラークラスやビジネスクラスのレッスンでは特に料理とは関連のないことを扱っているので、今回のワークショップでは知らない単語もたくさん出てきましたね。やっぱり体を使って実際の動作を体験しながら英会話をしてみると、より記憶に残ったり身につきやすいように感じました。なによりわいわいとみんなで料理をするのは楽しいですね!反省点としましては、80分はちょっと時間が足りないのと、材料が多すぎて食べきるのが大変でしたね😭

次回は2/16(土)と2/23(土)の11:30-12:50にCook English開催いたしますので、どうぞお気軽にご参加ください。担当はTrevorにお願いしたいですが、ひょっとしたら他のアメリカ人インストラクターに変更となる可能性がございます。
