Teachers' meeting for Autumn【講師会】

Hi everyone!
Autumn, the great season, is finally here! I hope you're all doing well.

Last Saturday, we had "Teachers' meeting" for the Autumn-term. The YMCA teachers gathered, and talked and shared about our classes and students. It was such a fruitful time for us!
The Autumn-term has started, and we are all excited to see our old students back in class and meet new people who are starting English at YMCA this October.
If you are looking for a school to study, YMCA is the one!

Please come check it out!

Back to school(^^)

Hello. It's Shoko!
How did you enjoy your summer holiday??
The school's summer break ended, and we are all back at school.
Some students are still busy with stuff and couldn't come to class today, but most of our students came in for their class with a great smile(o^^o) & enthusiasm♪Thank you so much!!
I taught three classes today, and had a lot of fun in class listening to their stories.

I went on a 2-day trip to Hita, Oita to relax and enjoy the spa during my summer break.





It was so nice and enjoyable. I hope to go again soon!

The Spring Term will finish next month, and Autumn Term will start in October. I hope all the students will complete their course feeling satisfied with our lessons.

Well, stay cool and enjoy the rest of summer!!
See you next time(^^)
