Watch US TV online for free!

If you go to the website http://www.hulu.com/, you can watch thousands of American TV shows online for free, including episodes of shows like The Simpsons, The OC, and others that I used to show you in English club. Watching TV shows in English is a great way to practice your listening comprehension while having fun!

I love elephants, and thought this photo of the mother and child
walking side by side with their ears flared was adorable.

Mr. Adams' Wild Animal Park Photo: Elephants

This is from the Wild Animal Park in San Diego, with an elephant
mother and her child. It looks like the mom is drawing something in
the sand and the kid is watching how she does it.

Here is one of the lions at the Wild Animal Park in San Diego, right
before laying down for a nap.

Hello☆ Shiomi

I went to Fuji safari park with my family in the winter vacation!(ρ0ω0)ρ
There are many animals such as lions, tigers, lepards, giraffes and so on.

This park allows customers to enter the place which has those animals by bus.So we used a rental bus. This bus was a chartered bus by my relatives.(>u<)

I have never watched the animals from this position. I could watch them very closely. It was a little scary for me but I was so excited!!!(☆▽☆)
I want to go there again!!!!(*υ*)

it seems that none of u guys is checking this blog.... so i guess everybody is busy!!!

i found a nice board game for English club=]* it is called "Apples to Apples" it is an English word game, but not like scrabble. we can play this board game with many people!! basically, each player put some cards which match the best with what they have for the title card(お題のカード). and then the judge will choose the most hilarious matching card from what the players put. we can learn many vocabulary from this game, like adjectives, nouns, famous people and so on. it is a fun game:)*
