Englishbuds 管理人 MommyKayo です。



今日は金曜日、講師コラムの日です♪


今年のお正月はコロナでダウンしていたこともあって

まだ新年を迎えていないような気分なのですが

早いもので1月も半ばです💦



あっという間に時間が過ぎていく~~~。


1日1日を大切にせねば・・・と思うばかりです(^^;


さて、今日は担当は【デイジー講師】です。


堅実そうなデイジー講師ですが

宝くじに当たったらどうするんでしょうか???

聞いてみましょう!

What would I do if I win the Lottery?

I believe that winning the lottery is a matter of luck but what we do with the amount we win depends entirely on us. It is true that lottery may be the key to achieve all our dreams and aspirations in life. With the money that we win from lottery, we can buy a several properties, purchase a new car or even travel to the places that are in our bucket list. But for me, I will use my winnings in the lottery as an opportunity to change the world. First, I will donate a portion of the money to some orphanage, the church or non-government organizations in our community that help the poor. A part of the money from the lottery would be used to set up a foundation that provides free education to children who cannot afford to go to school.

              For the remaining amount from the lottery, my family and I will purchase properties that can be an avenue for a business venture. Perhaps we can find a rest house by the beach that we can develop into a resort that can provide employment opportunities in our local area. Another option is to look for a business venture that can generate income. Also, I would like to set aside a portion of my winnings to travel to beautiful places with our family especially with our son, Matthew. We want him to explore the world and appreciate the wonders of nature

After spending a part of the amount from the lottery on donations, business and travel, I also intend to save a portion of the money in the bank. The interest in this deposit will be sufficient for the family to lead a comfortable life. The savings will remain safe in the bank and annual interest will be added to it. I think that it is very important to use the amount that we win from the lottery wisely.

              Winning the lottery may be a matter of luck but of course, we need hard work, grit and determination in order to achieve our goals and dreams in life.


おぉ!やはりデイジー講師らしい使い方です♪


マリア講師もそうでしたが

寄付というのが最初に出てくるのは

フィリピンがキリスト教国であることが関係しているのかな

と思ったり・・・。



誰も「仕事やめて遊んで暮らすぜ!」とは言いませんね(^^;

この”What would you do if you won the lottery?”という文は

高校で仮定法を教える時によく引き合いに出す例文なのですが

私は授業中に

「先生が宝くじに当たったら翌日から仕事に来なくなると思います。

私が急に学校に来なくなったら宝くじが当たったと思ってね。」

と言ってました(爆)



バズの講師たちのエントリーを読んでいると

本当に自分の浅はかさが嫌になってしまいます・・・。



今年は少しでも人間的に成長したいものだと思わされる金曜日。。。


来週の担当はアンソニー講師です(^^)

アンソニー講師はどうでしょう???

「全額ゲームに課金」とか言ってほしいですが

言わないでしょうね(笑)


楽しみです!
