Happy New Year!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday. Although it was a great two week break, it feels nice to be back at school teaching and hearing about everyone’s holiday. I spent my vacation in Japan and it was very fun and a great learning experience. I did Hatsumode with friends in Osaka, went swing dancing, and tried more Japanese food. I also practiced speaking Japanese nearly every day which was very difficult. So for those of you who are learning English, I understand how frustrated you can get. But don’t give up and let’s support each other in our respective learning endeavors!

In my childhood

I noticed that many of my students use the phrase “in my childhood” when describing things they did as a child. For example, “in my childhood, I helped my parents in the rice fields.” Or “in my childhood, I was a very bad child.” It sounds unnatural to say “in my childhood.” Rather, native speakers say “when I was a child,” “during my childhood,” or, more simply, “my childhood.” Here are some examples using each:

When I was a child, I loved going to the circus.

During my childhood, my parents always took me on trips abroad.

My childhood memories are good ones.

Practice talking about your childhood with your native speaking friends and use these phrases. The more you practice, the better your English will become and the more natural you will sound. Good luck!
