4月6日プラクティス

Dear Kyoto NHK ESS members,

Here is an information about a later half of the practice on April 6.

1. Genre: English Games

2. Title: Crossword, Body Letters and Your Choices

3. Details:

《Crossword》 We will be divided into three groups. The crossword question sheet is given to each group. The word level in the question will be the one at elementary school.
The groups will make competitions for the time speed to solve the question.


《Body Letters》 Your team will be assigned with some acronym, for example CIA. You will be challenged to make capital letters by using only your body to express
the “CIA” for your audience to guess the answer. “Central Intelligence Agency” is the right answer for this case.


《Your Choices》
Several topics of great interest will be prepared for you to make your choices. The members will be divided several groups according to the choices you make. You will be asked to explain the reasons for the choices by speaking for one minute.

Let`s enjoy the games!

This is the announcement for the latter half of ESS practice on March 23rd, 2019 at Hitomachi.

1.Genre:Talk&Discussion

2.Title:How to overcome starvation and excessive wealth gap

3.Description
Since I made a speech on inequality at the English Round Table in 2017, I think it is also a good idea to share and develop the contents with ESS members.

4. Procedures.

1) Watch the 3 minutes YouTube video on poverty and giving, which would be displayed on the screen twice.

2)Make some groups with 3 members each. If one member is left, join group 1. If another member is left, join group 2.

3)Read the material for this practice titled “How to overcome starvation and excessive wealth gap” and the others on “basic income.”

4)Discuss whether “Perfect equality” is possible to actualize in your life.

5) Discuss whether there is excessive inequality today.

6) Discuss your own idea to minimize excessive inequality.

7) Discuss whether "tax on capital" or "AI" or “basic income” or the other counter measures can be an effective means to rectify excessive inequality.

8)If there is enough time, make a brief report on your group discussion to the rest of the members.

Thank you for your kind cooperation.

Regards,

Osamu MINAMIHASHI
