Hi guys, we have all had good and bad experiences trying to speak a foreign language.  I thought I would share mine.

Have you had any similar experiences?  Share yours below.  Let's talk.

Yeah, it was quite apparent she had not had much interaction with a foreigner before, even though there was a big foreign community of n Ageo at the time. I'm getting used to the looks of terror now, but at the time it really annoyed me!

I have a question for all you guys in a relationship:

I love hanging out with my wife, but she walks soooo slowly.... It's really painful trying to walk at her speed, LOL!

She gets annoyed when I try to stretch out my legs, but I don't know what to do 😂

Is it just me? Have any of you had the same experiences?

Hi guys,

I was just wondering how you feel about all the news coming out of FIFA?  Are you glad that Sepp Blatter has announced his resignation?  Do you think the world cups in Russia and Qatar will be cancelled or go ahead?

What do you all think?

True. As the expression goes, Everyman for himself. But, does that justify corruption?

Example TOEFL/IELTS Essay - Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? People should sometimes do things that they do not enjoy doing.
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? People should sometimes do things that they do not enjoy doing. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer. Nobody likes doing chores! That’s why they are called chores; jobs that are necessary, but not necessarily enjoyable, for example, cleaning the bathroom and toilet, vacuuming …

This is a very interesting article about how being Bi-lingual helps you to show more empathy (understanding) towards other people.
What other benefits are there to being bi-lingual?

I need you help guys...

I started this community 18 months ago to make a place for people to talk and engage on a number of topics.  I have noticed, recently, that the conversations have been replaced by a lot of posts, "marketing" different schools and teachers.  (I am also guilty of this...)

I wanted it to be a place for people to just come and TALK in English, but instead, it seems to be a place for teachers to shout out about their schools or services. 

I would like to know what you guys (Englsih studnets) want.  Please let me know by completing the simple poll below.

Select what you would like to see more of:

Feel free to comment as well.

Story
Tagline
From the classroom to the boardroom!
Introduction
Originally from London, UK, where I was a freelance trumpet player and teacher, I now live in Tokyo as a freelance English teacher, and hopefully soon, as a freelance trumpeter again; got to hit the practice studio!  My passions in life are trumpet playing and working with others to set and achieve big goals.  My motto is: Aspire to Inspire!

I have established the website http://mbaenglishonline.com/ specifically for business English learners.  Many business men and women are simply too busy to take time out to study  with a teacher in person, so this website aims to make it possible for them to study in their own time from where ever they are.

Lessons cover pre and post MBA from writing academic essays and discussing complex business topics through to resume writing assistance and English interview seminars in conjunction with my partners.  MBA English Online also maintains a working relationship with recruiters here in Japan to aid the business English student find the perfect job: http://mbaenglishonline.com/post-mba/.

The website also boasts free downloadable vocabulary lists: http://mbaenglishonline.com/resource/  and free interactive vocabulary games and exercises:  http://mbaenglishonline.com/resource/mba-crosswords/ covering both business and MBA specific words and general English.

Feel free to contact me at ross@mbaenglishonline.com for more information.
