Extremely affordable Japanese language lessons from NCF and Ensogo!

April 24, 2012
By

Today, I received an email from Betty Mojica-sensei, my mentor and principal of the Nihongo Center Foundation. She told me that the NCF has partnered with Ensogo (be still my heart, haha) on a groupon deal for Elementary 1 Japanese lessons. What does an NCF elementary 1 course cover? Study of basic grammatical patterns Simple…

Calligraphy lessons at the Nihongo Center Open House 2011

When Kouchou-sensei invited me to this year’s Open House, I begged off doing the Trivia Booth. While it remains to be one of the more popular booths, I have been doing it for the past 4 years now. Also, half a day of asking shouting questions makes me hoarse for the rest of the day.…

A super belated NCF Open House post

Was finally able to read Mamu’s Facebook message after trying for so long — due to stupid internet connection, my inbox won’t open. If she hadn’t mentioned it in her message, I wouldn’t know that John-san had posted a pic of us in his Facebook album. I went and grabbed it (left). Haha. Japinoy.com was…

By

My admin page kept on showing interesting search results for the past week. I am happy to note that many people are actually looking for a school for JLPT review. Look no further. Nihongo Center Foundation offers review classes for JLPT – I don’t know about level 4. Level 1 and 2 classes will start…

To “handouts” or not to “handouts”?

February 7, 2009
By

That is sometimes not the question in my school. I heard from one of my former students about the use of handouts in our Japanese school. Basically, we give out handouts containing supplementary exercises and other notes not in the books (like Mojica-sensei’s keigo and sonkeigo notes). Other that those, we were told not to…

Looking back at my JLPT moments

I told myself that I will take the JLPT 1kyuu exam this year, no matter what. Although the original goal is to pass 1kyuu in 2010 (the year of my 30th birthday), I might as well have a go at it this year. I mean, there’s really nothing much to lose, and Kouchou-sensei has already promised…

JLPT moments and my life as a teacher (so far)

December 6, 2008
By

I just learned this morning that I have to be a JLPT 4 proctor tomorrow. And here I was, thinking I could spend one quiet Sunday snoozing all day. OK, maybe not so quiet, because everyone will be watching Manny Pacquiao’s match tomorrow and will most probably be screaming their lungs out at the TV.…

My students are addicted to nattou — NOT

Last Saturday, I brought some nattou (or “natto”, if you will — however, I am quite anal about romaji so there) for my morning Japanese class. Save for Takumi-san who is part Japanese, everyone has not heard of nattou before. I had 3 small containers and I divided the class into pairs to share a…

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Nihongo Center!

*&^%$#@!! How come I never saw these pictures before?! All I know is he visited the school the same day we had a Darake gang reunion in December. Edwin-sensei wasn’t able to make it to the reunion because of PM Abe’s visit. Now I’m soooo jealous of these people in the picture! Alfred-sensei, you’re so…

I officially started my new job yesterday (checks time)…on Friday, May 4th. But I already reported to the office on the 2nd and 3rd for trainings. I can’t say much about it since I am only a few days old into the job. Will post more probably after my first week. All I can say…

模擬授業 - Trial/practice class

March 23, 2007
By

Mojica-sensei (Edwin-sensei) told us that Kouchou-sensei (Betty-sensei) wants our class to have a 模擬授業 as soon as we finish Chapter 5 of the book. As expected, everyone was surprised with the announcement. We weren’t happy with it…we were scared! Besides, we thought it was too early to be doing practice classes. Those usually come in…
