About hometown and family

I was born and raised in Cotabato City, part of Mindanao here in the Philippines. It was a small city surrounded by rivers, which makes the land fertile and produces different kinds of fruits and vegetables including its neighboring provinces. Cotabato city has a combination of different cultures and religions which molds us to respect each other’s different beliefs and races.
We are six members in the family. They have been there for me supporting me all the way. My parents taught us the good values, they themselves showed us the right attitude especially when dealing with people. My parents also let us realized the value of education in our life. I miss my family and my hometown a lot since I am currently living and working here in Cebu.

私はフィリピンのコタバトという町で育ちました。川に囲まれた小さな町で、肥沃な、様々な野菜や果物が育つところです。コタバトの人々は、違った種類の文化や宗教が混在した中で育つので、お互いの違った信教、また、人種の違いといったものを越えて尊敬し合っています。
私の家族は六人家族です。みな私のことをあらゆる面から助けてくれます。両親からは、他人に接する態度について学んだり、私自身の人生における教育というものの価値に気づかされたりしました。私は今セブにいますが、故郷も恋しいです。

Favorite TV programs and It’s contents

The T.V program that I like is “Kakasa Ka Ba Sa Grade 5?” It aired in the Filipino channel adapted from its American version “Are You Smarter than the Fifth Grader? It is a show where the challenger mostly professionals will be asked questions from lessons in Grades One to Six. The Grade Five Students will help the contestant answering the questions. Later the challenger will realize that they couldn’t beat the fifth graders. I like it because you will learn from the questions given and you will also find yourself answering. You will also realize that you mostly forgot the lessons you learned from grade school, which will challenge you enough to recall what you have learned.

私の好きなテレビ番組は、“Kakasa Ka Ba Sa Grade 5?”というものです。これは、アメリカの“Are You Smarter than the Fifth Grader?”という番組のフィリピンリメイク版です。この番組では、専門家が小学生レベルの授業からの問題に対し、5年生と対決するもので、案外専門家が出来なかったりするのです。私は、昔習ったことを思い出せる上、記憶の糸を探ることがチャレンジングなのでこの番組は大好きです。

Comments to students

The best thing about being a teacher is that your students will learn something from you. When I started teaching after I graduated in college I realized that teaching is a difficult task but indeed challenging. The students have different characteristics that you have to deal with. As a teacher, you have to be creative so that you will be able to impart knowledge to your students for you to become an effective teacher. Teaching English as a Secondary Language is a combination of challenging and fun way of teaching. Partly you have to adapt to your students culture. It is fulfilling to know that the students are interested to learn something from you. They also showed respect to the teacher despite of the culture differences. The students have also their ideas and opinions and it would be great if they have the chance to express it on their own because not only the students learn but the teacher as well.

先生であることの一番の醍醐味は、私から生徒が何かを学んでくれることです。大学を出て教え始めてから、私は教育がとても難しいけれど、とてもやりがいのあることだと気づきました。私は教える側として、生徒それぞれの性格にあった形で効率よく知識を伝えなければならないと思っています。英語を教えることには、やりがいと楽しさの両方があります。そして、学んだことを生徒が自分で表現できるようになればいいですね。

Goals and dreams as an English teacher

My goal as an English teacher is to impart knowledge to my students. I want to help my students learn English the fun and easy way and would be fluent in English in no time.

私の英語の教師として、生徒に知識を伝えることが目標です。英語を楽しく、簡単に、速やかに学んでいたがけることを目指しています。

About Japanese and Japan

Japan is one of the modernized countries in the world. Although they have some limited knowledge in writing and speaking English they are still progressive, mainly because Japanese people are very much dedicated to work. Japanese people are also willing to learn, and likes to invent new things no matter how hard it seems. Japan is a very nice place to visit and they have a very interesting language which Americans and other races, including me are willing to learn.

日本は世界で最も近代化された国のひとつです。英語の読み書きに少し問題あるケースが多いものの、日本は、日本人が熱心に働くこともあり、まだまだ発展していけると思います。日本人は学んで、新しいものを生み出すことが得意だと思います。アメリカ人や、他の人種の人が学びたくなるような魅力が日本にはありますし、是非訪れたい国です。
