札幌STEP UPの カナダ人 英会話講師 Joe ジョー
My name is Joe and I’m from a small, northern city in Canada. I’ve always been interested in Japan, so that’s why I came here to teach English. I’ve lived in Japan for over nine years now. I’ve taught in Fukushima Prefecture and Hokkaido (Obihiro and Kushiro). I love Japanese food.I want to learn how to cook Japanese food but it’s very difficult for me. I also want to study more Japanese. My goal is to become fluent in both spoken and written Japanese. I think Sapporo is a great place to live! There are lots of fun and interesting things to do in and around the city. Let`s chat when you come to STEP UP!
Fruit in Japan is expensive. It’s usually fresh and very good quality, but the price makes it difficult to eat a lot. I try to eat fruit every day. Usually I have a banana with yogurt in the morning and an apple in the afternoon. Bananas are probably the least expensive fruit so I buy them often. I also love all kinds of berries and seasonal fruit such as cherries and peaches. However, berries and seasonal fruit are very expensive so I rarely buy them.
This year I want to try to eat more fruit and vegetables. Fresh food is both delicious and healthy. Fruit and Vegetables are rather expensive in Japan, but the health benefits are worth it!
Most of my students know that I love to cook and it’s one of my main hobbies. I used to do a lot of baking. I loved baking cakes, cookies, muffins, and even bread. But over the past year I’ve become more interested in cooking than baking (probably because I eat everything I bake and the calories add up). I also used to use a lot of cookbooks for recipes. I still have many cookbooks at home on my bookshelf. However, I recently discovered cooking on YouTube. With YouTube, there is no need for cookbooks and there are numerous recipes for virtually any kind of dish. The recipes and cooking methods are usually written in the description box and the video shows the step by step cooking process. It’s a wonderful tool for cooking in the 21st century! Check it out!
Recently I received some plum blossom branches from a friend of mine. You’re supposed to put them in water and then the plum buds will blossom. So that is exactly what I did. I put them in a big jar of water and then displayed them on the shelf. After only a couple of days the flower buds got bigger and one of the buds even blossomed! I’m sure that in a couple of days, my plum branches will be full of pretty, white plum blossoms. What an interesting gift. It’s like an early spring in my living room!
