The May 2009 edition of “Kia Ora from New Zealand“, which is my student’s blog in Japanese, is now up!
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I and several students from Smiths School of English in Fuse, had the wonderful opportunity to spend an evening together a couple of weeks ago with my former student who is now living and working in New Zealand.
We enjoyed great food and drinks and it was a good opportunity for us to hear about her new life overseas.
She has recently returned back to New Zealand, however this time she was accompanied by… her daughter who is planning to enter a university there following her completion and successful passing of an English language course. Good luck!
This article touches on the changes in her life now living in New Zealand with her daughter and she promises to keep us updated on the “mother-daughter” adventures!
So, you may wonder why this interesting picture?
Is there any connection with study abroad and this animal? The answer is no but there is some very interesting information about New Zealand animals in this article.
Do you know what the ratio of sheep and cows to people is in New Zealand?
Check out the article and you can find out! I was surprised!
Does anybody else have any interesting New Zealand facts?
These are just some of the topics which she has highlighted in this edition.
As always, comments and questions posed back are always welcome.
This is another fun and informative article in the series “Kia Ora from New Zealand” guaranteed to start some interesting discussions in the classroom.
Please encourage your students to read it and also to write back with questions and comments.
