Have you visited the cafe at English-Please? Here are five reasons to drop by: 1) You can meet and chat with other parents. The cafe is a great place for parents to meet and chat. You can talk to the parents of the other students in your child’s class, or chat with other parents in general. You could trade tips for how to help your children with their English, or just chat about your week. You might also get to meet some of our friendly and helpful staff. 2) You can relax with a nice cup of tea. There is an electric kettle in the cafe and a nice selection of teas that you can enjoy for free. Today the selection includes green tea, black tea, Earl Grey tea, and my favourite: Houjicha. It’s always nice to enjoy a relaxing cup of hot tea. If you prefer, water is also available. 3) There are toys to play with. If you arrive a little early, or if your child has a brother or sister who doesn’t have a class at the same time, there are some toys in the cafe that can help to pass the time. The wooden train set is particularly popular. There are also other toys such as stuffed animals and an Anpanman playset. 4) You can visit the Reading Tree. We have a huge library of books that you can borrow and read. There are books that are suitable for all levels of English ability. Reading is fun, and reading books in English can improve your vocabulary, increase your listening skills, help you discover new grammar and new words, and allow you to improve while enjoying yourself. Please visit the Reading Tree! 5) There are nice tables and comfortable chairs. You can sit and relax. You can read. You (or your child) can do some homework. It is a nice, friendly, comfortable place to spend a little bit of time. I hope I will see you soon, in the cafe!
2)お茶を飲みながらリラックスしてくださいね。 カフェには電気ポットがあり無料でご利用いただけます。現在は緑茶、紅茶、アールグレイのお茶、そして私のお気に入りのほうじ茶があります。熱いお茶っていいですよね。もちろん、お水もあります。
3)おもちゃもご用意があります。 少し早く到着した時や、兄弟または姉妹の授業を待つことがあれば、その間におもちゃで遊んでいただけます。木製の電車が特に人気です。ぬいぐるみやアンパンマンのプレイセットなどもあります。
4)リーディングツリーをご利用いただけます。 EP!には大きな図書室があり、本を借りて読んでいただけます。全ての英語のレベルに適した本があります。読書は楽しいです。そして英語で本を読むことは語彙力やリスニングスキルを向上させたり、新しい文法や単語を発見するなど、読書を楽しんでいる間に上達していきます。 是非是非、リーディングツリーをたくさんご利用ください。
5)テーブルと椅子もあるので、 座ってリラックスしていただけますし、読書や宿題もしていただけます。ちょっとした時間を過ごすのにちょうどいい、フレンドリーで快適な場所です。カフェでお会いしましょう!
