The laughs are abundant at Smith’s School of English. This week my Saturday 3pm lesson included three students who were tasked with miming some activities to get their partners to guess what they were doing and to use the past continuous tense. It never fails that one of the students does something really funny when trying to mime riding a ride at an amusement park. And this time when one student was supposed to be miming “camping” she looked like she was planting flowers so the other student guessed “you were gardening”. We were almost rolling on the floor laughing (ROFL) when one student finally guessed “you were gardening”. The fun goes on and on at Smith’s school of English and when you get up and act a little silly, you’d be surprised how well you remember the language you’re studying. 英会話を覚えるのに物まねも役に立ちますね！
Coaching students to improve their English in Japan is great fun and I cannot think of a more rewarding and fun way to pass your time. At Smith’s you are free to have fun and your students will benefit even more for it!
