Today, We held English discussion activity "Express Yourself in English !" which is intended to enjoy small talk "Zatsu-Dan" in English, through listening to, talking about and singing a song in English, which lead by Yuko-san, a Jazz singer.
All of you who participated, thank you.

Today's theme song was "What A Wonderful World".


"What a Wonderful World" is a pop ballad written by Bob Thiele (as "George Douglas") and George David Weiss. It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released in 1967 as a single, which topped the pop charts in the United Kingdom.
On the other hand, this song was not able to be in the top 100 of the year of the Billboard of the United States of America.

Yuko-san advised us with valuing the rhythm as like read poem, when we sing this song.
And Yuko-san also advised us to be conscious of "th" pronounce of "I think", never be "I sink".

Today's discussion theme was "happiness".
The question was "Are the people in Japan generally happy?".

Happily, all the members who participated in the discussion were "happy people".

However, it is a fact that "there are the people who do not seem to be happy".

We discussed "why are they not happy?".
Our conclusion was that "social pressure" was the keyword. 

Are you happy ?

The next is February 8.
See YOU Next time !
