Hey there everyone, and let me lead off with a quick apology. If you were coming here expecting another environment-slanted blog, I’m sorry to disappoint you! I’m switching gears a little bit, but don’t worry it’s only for this month!
I’ll be back next month with some funs ways to reduce your own environmental footprint (hint: the recent buzzword, upcycling).
For this month though, I wanted to share a new project that I’ve been working on for the past couple of months. I didn’t know what to expect going into the course, but as with every single project and course I’ve done on Fruitful English, it’s been tons of fun!
If you don’t know, I’m talking about a new website that a group of Fruitful English students are opening now. It’s called ‘Ask Japanese’. I could give you my own description of the course, but one of my wonderful students can do it better than me. Here’s a short description by one of the project managers of the course:
We are launching a new website called “Ask Japanese” this summer! The website is focused on answering questions about Japan from foreigners in English. Please visit the website and ask something about Japan in English, or share it with friends!
In short, a group of students are learning English by running a website! Fruitful English has started a website which allows users to submit questions about Japan: then, the project members can answer the questions in English.
Of course, there’s a lot to running a website, aside from simply answering questions from the users. So, our students have been doing all sorts of projects, from promoting the website in English, to thinking about the design of the website, and sending business proposals to Fruitful English management. It’s been a great learning experience for everyone.
While we are branded as ‘AskJapanese.com’, we don’t actually own that domain. So, we might have a new website soon. That’s one of our student’s business proposals! As you can see, the students are tackling a wide range of topics. So, come check out our site and let us know what you think.
Our students are even running their own Facebook, with a linked Instagram to follow. Check back at either links for updates. You can post comments and get in touch with our students directly on Facebook, so don’t be shy. Let us know what you think.
Oh, but it’s back to work for me now! Come join me on Ask Japanese!
