Last weekend, the latest Marvel movie, “Avengers: Endgame” opened in many movie theaters around the world. From the opening until April 28th, the ticket sales have been amazing.
Talking about topics like money and business is a good way to practice English. How do you say big numbers? In English, the names for numbers move up by three digits, not four like in Japanese.
Former secret service agent Frank Farmer (Kevin Costner) became a private bodyguard. He got a job to protect pop singer Rachel Marron (Whitney Houston) from a stalker. It is not a classic movie, but it is entertaining. For English practice, I think that this movie is good.
Hawaiian Snack Night was Alliance Eikaiwa’s first in-school event. We had Hawaiian snacks, fruit juice, and we used some Hawaiian words. At this event, students could meet each other for the first time.
It is a story about a boxer, but it is also a story about his family. Just like in “Seabiscuit,” you can see American life during the Great Depression. In this movie, you can also see family life much more clearly.

This movie is about the real racehorse named Seabiscuit. Seabiscuit was a very popular and successful racehorse in the 1930’s. It is based on a true story, so you can see American life during the Great Depression. After you understand the story, you can catch some of the conversations. If you buy the DVD, I recommend the Premium Edition.
