English Cafe

letseigo-englishcafeOn the morning of January 6th 2015, we held the first official “English Cafe” at Let’s Eigo in Moriai. It was a fun, relaxing time to start the new year!

English cafe is a 60-minute free talk time. The price to attend is just 1000 yen, with coffee included!

It’s a great way to practice speaking English while enjoying coffee in a no-pressure environment. We didn’t use a text book – we just talked about anything we wanted to.

Thanks to the students who participated! I hope to do more “English Cafe” often events this year.
