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!
Donuts or Doughnuts?
The correct spelling of the word to describe the ring-shaped cake made of dough and fried in fat is “doughnut.” However, this word is simplified by many people to the easy to spell word “donut.” Personally I like the simplified spelling of the word becuase it’s easy and quick to write.
Speaking of donuts, the American donut chain “Krispy Kreme” has opened in Sapporo in Pole Town between Odori Station and Susukino Station. That is very exciting to me! I haven’t tried the donuts yet, but I will try them as soon as I get a chance. I wonder if Japanese people will like the overly sweet American style donuts???
Winter Is Around The Corner!
The temperature is dropping. The leaves are all falling from the trees. The days are getting shorter. Yes, winter is “just around the corner” (this means that it is coming soon). It’s time to change your car tires and take out your winter clothes. We must prepare for the long winter ahead.
Although there are many things that I don’t like about winter, there are also some really great things about winter. One thing I like about winter is the winter scenery. The clean, white snow is very beautiful as it covers the trees, roofs and yards. I also love nabe (or a Japanese hot-pot). In the winter I often eat Japanese hot-pots. And of course, I love Christmas. So winter is not all bad!
Recently I’ve become addicted to watching Nature videos on YouTube. I love learning about different kinds of animals, their habitat and how they survive. All species of animals have very different characteristics and have evolved over time to survive in the wildernes. Watching these kinds of videos is not only fascinating, but also quite informative. I’ve learned a lot about both the survial of animals and the survival of mankind.
If you know of any interesting nature videos on YouTube, please let me know! And to everyone: Happy Viewing!
