Totsuzen Eigo on Powtoon

Totsuzen Eigo on Powtoon
Our Gifu school faces (向かう) a busy intersection (十字路). While waiting at the pedestrian crossing (横断歩道 ), many people face the school, so we set up a TV in our lobby, facing out. On the TV, we display school news, and 'Totsuzen Eigo' cartoons which I made using a free online program called Powtoon [ www.powtoon.com ]. To see my Powtoon creations, go to YouTube and search for 'Totsuzen Eigo'.

Unripe Grapes

スレッド
Unripe Grapes
My grape vine has lots of grapes, but I haven`t picked any yet because they`re still green, so they`re not ready to eat yet (they`re red grapes). I put a net over them to stop birds. I haven`t seen any birds trying to eat them yet, but I`m sure they`ll come and try soon. I think my chickens want to eat them too.

My chickens still haven`t laid any eggs. I`m still waiting... Come on, chooks!

Grammar:
- still + ___ = まだ ___
- not + ___ + yet = まだ ___ない
- still + is/are/have/do + not + ___ = まだ ___ない

Dong Khoi Vietnamese Restaurant

Dong Khoi Vietnamese Restaurant
Yesterday I went to a nice Vietnamese restaurant in Iwakura, Aichi for lunch. It`s a bit far from Gifu, but not too far from where I live in Ichinomiya. My wife & I sat outside on the terrace, which was warm, but not so bad. The food was delicious, & not that expensive. I recommend it!

Grammar:
- not + too/so/that + 形容詞 = そんなに [形容詞] ...ない

Chicken Coop

スレッド
Chicken Coop
I made this chicken coop. I only have 3 hens, so it`s big enough, but I hope it is strong enough to keep out predators (捕食者) such as cats & weasels (鼬). Unfortunately I only had enough sheet metal to cover one side. The other sides are just wood. If I have enough time, I will try to strengthen the other walls.

Grammar:
- OK: ...enough + 名詞, ...形容詞 + enough
- WRONG: ...名詞 + enough, ...enough + 形容詞

Pet Chooks

スレッド
Pet Chooks
I bought 3 hens. A hen is a female (雌) chicken. A male (雄) chicken is a rooster. Roosters are not good pets because they are noisy; hens aren`t. In a few months I hope to get eggs from these hens, but now they are too young.

A student told me where to buy them. Thanks, Junko!

Vocabulary:
- 'chook' is Australian & NZ slang, = chicken

Killifish Puzzle, Higashiyama Zoo

スレッド
Killifish Puzzle, Higashiyama Zoo
On Sunday, Teragoya kids, teachers & staff went to Higashiyama Zoo. We go every year, but in previous years, I didn`t notice this killifish (メダカ) section. I`m interested in killifish, so I wanted to look. I asked the kids in my group, "Are you interested in looking at killifish?" They said yes, so we looked inside. There were various displays, but they were most interested in this killifish internal organs (内臓) puzzle.

Natural English:
- 'be (not) + interested in + 名詞 / 動詞ing` is more common & natural than ' have an (/no) interest in 名詞 / 動詞ing', though both are correct.
