The new Teacher Blogger has arrived!
Hello everyone. My name is Lewis Davies and I’m the new ‘teacher blogger’. I’m very excited about the chance to help the new ‘student blogger', Jenny, develop her English ability. I hope that I can continue the great standard of work started by Rachel, the previous ‘teacher blogger’.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I’m from Yorkshire in England, but now I live in Kobe, Japan. I’ve been living here for about seven years. I just got married last year. I'm a teacher at the British Council in Osaka, which is a short train ride from my flat. I really enjoy working and living here. Kobe is a very modern city with wonderful restaurants and shops. It’s also a very convenient place to live because so many other interesting places, such as Kyoto, Nara and Osaka are not far away.
I love listening to music, watching films and eating! My wife works for a restaurant magazine, so she takes me to lots of places to eat delicious food. I also really like travelling. I’ve been to many places in Asia, including Hong Kong!
Enough about me…
I’d like to say a big ‘Hello!’ It’s very nice to read your first blog post. I hope we have an enjoyable time blogging together. In my first blog I’d just like to talk about the content of your first blog. I'll start giving you lots of useful feedback on your English in my next post.
You sound like you have a very busy life. Working, studying English and taking care of your family must be very challenging. How do you find time for yourself? You are a very lucky person to be able to practise your English for free, I think. I wonder if more people will join your English class now you are a famous blogger?
Thank you for telling us the Valentine’s story. I had no idea there was a Chinese Valentine’s day. Actually, there are many things I don't know about China, so I’m really looking forward to learning more about your lifestyle and culture. I've heard that many Chinese people really enjoy romantic films and love songs. Is that true?
You like cooking and I like eating! A very good match, I think. I’m really glad to hear that your family enjoyed the quiche. Many people complain about English food, including my students, but it’s not all bad. Living in Japan, I often really miss a nice, home-made, Sunday lunch. Roast beef, roast vegetables and gravy. It’s heaven. Have you ever tried it?
Well, it’s time for my dinner. On the menu tonight is grilled fish and deep-fried vegetables. Lovely…
Bye for now,
