SNAPSHOTS of Teaching English.

In my previous blog, I wrote about becoming an English teacher. In this blog, I’d like to share some snapshots of my teaching experiences with the different companies that I help with.

I will start with some pictures of me working at Huis ten Bosch in English Square:

The building where we work in English Square at Huis ten Bosch.

All the programs that they offer.
A board showing the different role-play situation experiences (currency exchange, fast food, etc.)

The following are some group photos that we had to take as a challenge once we found the different places in the Huis ten Bosch theme park.

During our English lesson on the last day, we had reporters from a Nagasaki newspaper come and record the teaching and ask the students a few questions!

These are only a sliver of the plethora of photos that I have of my teaching experiences since we arrived in Sasebo almost six months ago. I will absolutely have more to come in the future!

Our roots will forever be from here, America, born and raised. Yet, life requires us to move more frequently than we care to count. Whether living stateside or abroad, you can always find us traveling somewhere. We scout out places that you only think you can dream of one day seeing and we seek out those that aren’t found in guidebooks. We then bring them to life here in our travel memos, so hopefully, one day you too can visit them or at least be able to live vicariously through us. This blog isn’t just about crossing off places from a bucket list. It’s about absorbing and learning how other cultures grow and fit into the same world that we do. Life is short and the world is big. Enjoy and get out there!
