26-Naho-&-Michael-kibasen-English-at-home-IS-FUN

It has been a long time since we have done a podcast!!!???
Seems like school is going to have a sports Festival this year too.
Which most of the kids are really excited….. but not me.???
I’m in fifth grade now, and seems like I’m going to have to do a really weird kind of sports this year. It kind of makes me wonder why I even have to do it.??
It’s not popular either, so I bet that listeners that are not Japanese will be pretty much surprised about this weird kind of sports.???
What kind of sport is it?
Listen to the episode and find out!!!????… By Naho??

やっと新しいPodcastをやりました!!???
今回は運動会の事について話していきます。
楽しみの運動会!!???……と言いたいところですが、運動音痴の私にはかなりの微妙な感じかな…。???
私は今5年生なので、騎馬戦を運動会でやります。???
これまで4回運動会をやってきて毎回運動会をやるたびに5年生が騎馬戦をやっているのを見て「大変そうだなぁ…?」と見ていました。本当に私は同じことを来年できるのか???と4年生の運動会で思っていたところで、まさか自分が上に立つ人になるなんて思いもしませんでした。???それも、立候補したのではなく、自分のチームの中で1番体重が軽かったと言う理由で勝手に決まってしまったそうです。?? はぁー、本番大丈夫なのかなぁ…。???

みなさん、こんにちは。
今回のお話は、節分についてです。
おに退治のために、部屋中に豆をまき、床に落ちた豆を歳の数だけ、もしくは数え年として、歳の数+1つ多く食べるという話を娘がすると、Michael先生が、
“Why ? Japanese people!??”
と応えます。

その他にも恵方巻の話をしています。

?その時、Michael先生が「ニューヨークにもホットドックのコンテストがあるよ」というお話をするのですが、それはいつ頃あるのでしょうか?

?それから、shoot! という英語を使ったMichael先生に、娘が「他にも違う使い方があるね‼️」という話をしますが、それはどんな時でしょう?

今回のトークも、2人の息はぴったり‼️?
最高のエンターテイメントになっていますので、どうかお聞きになってください。???
