NELS Easteryaki party!

Maybe you’ve heard of Easter, and if you’re Japanese or know the language, you’ll know yaki, meaning grilled, but what happens if you put them together? You get Easteryaki! Normally the word before yaki is tako, meaning octopus, and takoyaki are round balls of dough with octopus inside:

However, NELS has put a twist on this idea, which means we not only make traditional takoyaki, but we use our own unique fillings too. How about ham and cheese, or, as it’s Easter, why not try chocolateyaki? Trust me, it’s delicious!
To see photos from our previous parties, and for more information in Japanese, check out our website here, and our Facebook page here.
There will also be fun quizzes and games so you can learn about the more traditional aspects of Easter.
Why not join us?

NELS Christmas Party

P1060227

What have we been making for you for this year’s Christmas pressies? You’ll have to come along to our party at the Curious Fox pub in Sapporo tomorrow night to find out! If you’ve been good, maybe you’ll even get a kiss from Santa (…if you’d like one, that is!)!

Merry Christmas from NELS!

Recipes from the Tea Party

A few people have asked me about my recipes from the NELS tea party so I thought I’d share them with you.

The scone recipe is from probably the most famous British chef at the moment, called Jamie Oliver. Here’s his recipe. He writes a lot, so let me know if you need any questions understanding it.

I was also asked about my honey mustard chicken sandwich recipe, so here it is.

I hope you can find all of the ingredients and enjoy making the food!

Please let me know if you would like any more information.

A, an, the or nothing?

These tiny little words are not only quite important in English, but also quite confusing for many English language learners, right?

You will learn about them in our A2 General English course. To find out more about our 英会話 courses, click on the link.

For a guide in how and when to use  a, an, the or nothing, check out this video.

BBQ party

We held a BBQ party yesterday, and even though it rained, we still had a great time.

Thanks to all those who came. Thanks for helping with all the preparations, E, and thanks to everyone for bringing delicious food, and for making a soggy Sunday afternoon lots of fun.
