English Village Learning Blog (1)


The blog you are about to read is somewhat auto-biographical and it is intended as a reading comprehension exercise, as well as a vehicle to increase the students understanding of vocabulary used in a wide variety of topics and situations.

This blog will also contain poetry at the end in the form of song lyrics, which I have written for songs composed by myself.

I am not a musician, but I know a few chords on the guitar and I had already written a novel, "The Button Men" published by Minerva Press in London (1999) and before that an English textbook, "English, Face-to-Face" which had been published in Tokyo in 1986.

Writing poetry was easy for me.  Putting the words to music was challenging.

The main thrust of this blog is to talk about "Creativity" and "Versatility".  If you have an interest in something, then it is your duty to pursue it.  Of course, if you are reading this, well then, you are interested in learning English.  Perhaps this is just one of your interests.  I know just the man to help you open the door to meet this challenge.  Read on:                     (V.C)
