Bored First years make videos

This kind of bored activity is both fun and good. A small group of first year students were bored at lunch and decided to play around with their iPod Touches. These little machines can do so much, both with wifi and without.

In our first video we get the feeling that our student have seen The Beatles movie “A Hard Day’s Night”

And now for a little fun stuff with a few more students. More is better, right?

Ice Candy


Summer is coming soon. In summer, everyone loves to eat ice candies. Recently, one ice candy is popular among people. It is Garigari-kun (ガリガリ君). This ice candy is very crunchy because there are many little ice blocks in the ice candy. Also, Garigari-kun has various flavors. 26 types of Garigari-kun are sold in store. I would like to introduce some flavors. Soda is always sold in store. It is standard flavor. Pear is very popular in summer. Corn soup is interesting.  Many people were interested in it and bought it, so it was sold out soon. Others are orange, cola, and pudding. Garigari-kun is cheap; it is about 70 yen. Therefore in this summer you enjoy it a lot and enjoy flavors!
