When I made a trip to my hometown in Canada during the Smith’s Golden Week holiday, I bought some sweets for my students at Smith’s School of English Tsukaguchi and brought them back to Japan. I got some candies made from Maple syrup and an assortment of cookies. I always enjoy offering my students sweets and drinks at my school. Offering them things made in Canada is something that I especially enjoy doing.
While in Canada, I also bought some things to stick on my school’s walls. I got some laminated pictures of Canada, which were actually meant to be used as place mats. However I thought they were very pretty and would make nice pictures on my school’s walls, so I bought a bunch of them. I also got a laminated map of Canada. When I came back to Japan, I stuck them up in my school to be enjoyed by all. They made a nice addition to the flags of Quebec and Canada, which are on the wall above my whiteboard.
With the flags, the map, the photos, the sweets and me being Canadian, I hope to create an enjoyable environment for my students to study in and to enhance their interest in Canada at Smith’s School of English Tsukaguchi in Tsukaguchi, Amagasaki City, Hyogo Prefecture.
