Hi all!!! It is October and that means HALLOWEEN!!


It is a great time of the year when you can dress up as anyone or anything you want. Adults have parties and kids go Trick or Treating. What a fun time of the year.


Do you know the original meaning of HALLOWEEN??? Please check below for the wikipedia link.



Last time I asked you the following question:

Can you make some predictions for the future? 

Plans for this weekend.

  • I will probably visit my friend. We may go to see a movie.

Plans for the year end holiday.

  • I hope that we will be able to take a wonderful holiday. We want to go to the Maldives.

Your intentions to travel.

  • I am going to visit my friend in Monaco next month.

Intentions to get married.

  • I am getting married next October.

Effort to improve your English.

  • I am going to study hard and get 800 on the next TOEIC test.

What is happening in Japan these days?

  • The budget for the 2020 Olympics is getting out of hand. I hope that it will be dealt with soon.

What international events are in the news this week?

  • There have been many stories about the antics of Donald Trump in the news. I think he will continue in the same way.

This week I would like to give you another challenge.

Using the telephone is difficult. Can you fill in the missing phrases?



A:  Hello. ABC Company. How may I help you?


A: Yes, you would like to speak to Mr. X in marketing. May I have your name please?
