I'm Yumi, a JEEPA certified English coach.
How are you doing?
Today in Melbourne, the temperature is currently 16 degrees and it is raining outside.
It's a little chilly. ..
What is the climate in your area like?
By the way, since the beginning of this year, every morning except weekends, I take an online dance class
with a teacher named Toshie Fujiwara from San Francisco, who has a 35-year dance background.
I hadn't done any exercise like this until now, so I was wondering if I could continue at first, but now it has
become a daily routine.
She teaches us dance steps and we repeat them every day with different dance styles.
So it seems that my body is remembering the moves gradually, and it became fun to dance.
She is a very patient and great teacher who understands the physical body structure well.
If you join the Zoom room for the group, it will be played live within the Facebook Group.
So you are kind of forced to get ready properly. Which is a good thing for me since I got lazy to get ready
in the morning since Covid started...😅
Another good thing is since you move your body in the morning, you will feel refreshed and happy all day
long. I also seem to have gained some muscles.
All of my classmates are wonderful people living in Japan, the East and West Coasts of the United States,
Canada, and Australia, and they are connected without feeling the time difference or distance.
Some of them have lived overseas for so long, so English and Japanese are spoken in mixed ways which is
good to learn English internationally too. 😄
I guess Covid is not all bad and it’s so wonderful to have such connections all over the world.
We are currently looking for group members, so if you are interested, please join us (it's free)!
The Facebook group name is Toshi’s dance and fitness.
By the way, the introduction has become long, but today I would like to introduce Mr. Atsuhiko Nakata's
YouTube university video and It's about Kojiki.
Since there are many occasions to talk about Japanese religion and history to people from overseas,
I think it's useful to have a rough understanding about it.
Recently, it seems that English subtitles are attached to those videos thanks to the cooperation of
Thank you for your effort to the volunteers ~ 💕
How was it? .. Did you know that Kojiki is a Japanese myth and a storybook?
The way Mr. Nakata's talks expresses each character well and his way of talking is so funny too,
so I enjoy watching it so much.
It seems that there are about 4 Kojiki videos in the series.
Well then, I guess that’s it for today.
Have a nice weekend everyone!
