Shochu sommelier Stephen Lyman will give tips on what to try based on your preferences in other liquors like whiskey or rum, and reveal shochu’sfascinating history on the island of Kyushu.

ENGLISH TEACHING INTERNSHIP IN JAPAN

Greetings:

I am emailing from Ibaraki Christian University in Hitachi, Japan to ask for your assistance in informing interested students of our unpaid internship program. The program is now in its fifth year, and we have welcomed interns from all over North America and from Europe. With the experience gained through the internship, many of our former interns who applied to the JET Program have been accepted. We will be welcoming our first intern from Australia in December and are also hoping to welcome future interns from colleges and universities in Ireland and New Zealand. The following is the basic information that we post with career centers, internship offices and international offices:

We are looking for students who are interested in doing an unpaid international internship related to teaching. Specifically, we are looking for interns to help undergraduate English majors in Japan improve their English. Interns will work with students in and outside of the classroom to help them academically and provide opportunities to practice English communication. Interns will also plan and create opportunities for students to use their English in nonacademic settings such as playing games, sports and other extracurricular activities.

Those interested in our program can visit http://www.gendaieigo.info/internship for more information including testimonials from past participants. Please note that the position is ongoing. We welcome all students at American, Australian, Canadian, Irish, New Zealand and United Kingdom colleges and universities irrespective of religious faith, culture and nationality.

While applications are welcome at all times, we are especially interested in applicants who would like to intern during our spring semester, between the months of April and July, and our fall semester, which starts in late September and runs until the end of January. Interns are also welcome for a full academic year. Dates for internships are flexible and can be arranged depending on individual schedules.

We would appreciate it if you could inform any students who might be interested. If there is a specific person I should contact to have this emailed to interested students at your school, please contact me directly to avoid overloading anyone with multiple email messages. Thank you for your understanding and help. If there is any more information that I can provide for you, please feel free to contact me at anytime.

Lastly, I am attaching a flyer on our program. If it is possible to post or distribute the attachment to students who may be interested, we would appreciate it.

We look forward to hearing from you and your students.

Sincerely,
Rory S. Baskin

“Napping Princess”, opening on 09/08/17, Location: Villlage East Cinema

Greetings Baruch Students,

I’m writing on behalf of GKIDS, an independent film distributor focused solely on animation, including 9 Academy Award-nominated films and the entire Studio Ghibli library.

GKIDS’ newest film, Napping Princess is a thrilling sci-fi fantasy adventure, opening at the Village East Cinema on 9/08/17 playing both in dubbed English and the original Japanese with English subtitles. This exciting new film effortlessly blends reality and a magical world with the use of visually striking animation and outstanding action sequences. It’s the latest film from Kenji Kamiyama, director of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and East of the Eden. More information can be found below and on our website.

We wanted to bring this film to your attention as we thought it would be of interest to your students. We would love to work together and can offer a variety of opportunities for you including group sales and movie postcards.

Feel free to let us know if you have any questions.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Sincerely,

Skye Barclay

Synopsis:

The year is 2020, three days before the opening of the Tokyo Olympics. While she should be studying for her exams, Kokone Morikawa is often dozing off, stuck between reality and a dream-world full of fantastic motorized contraptions. But after her father, a talented but mysterious mechanic, is arrested for stealing technology from a powerful corporation, it’s up to Kokone and her childhood friend Morio to save him. Together they realize that Kokone’s dream-world holds the answers to the mystery behind the stolen tech, and they embark on a journey that traverses dreams and reality, city and country, and past and present. Their mission uncovers a trail of clues to her father’s disappearance and ultimately a surprising revelation about Kokone’s family.

From visionary director Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Eden of the East) comes a sci-fi fantasy that effortlessly weaves together the rapidly evolving technology of today’s world with the fantastic imagination of the next generation. With an ambitious mix of multilayered action, whimsical characters and inventive machines, Napping Princess is a genre- and universe-blending film that shows that following your dreams is sometimes the best way to discover your past.
