  1. Kohei practices his English at a special place. Read about this place. Guess the missing words.




I’d like to tell you about a cool place at my . The building itself looks awesome, but what goes on is what I really like!
It’s an English communication center called E-cube, but it’s nothing like a . My friends and I come to shoot hoops on the basketball court
between classes, and for lunch we come back for burritos and smoothies at the café. And I get to learn about different from all around the world. There are twenty-four native English speakers from seven diff erent
countries that I out with.

There are so many fun things to do, and every day there is a diff erent activity. I’ve tried cricket, palm reading, playing the drums, and hula dancing. So far my favorite activity is making shish kebabs.
What I most about E-cube is that it’s really easy to talk to the staff because they’re so friendly and do their best to encourage me to as much as I can.

At E-cube there really is something for everyone. Even if you didn’t like
at school, why don’t you come along and it out? You’ll see how much fun you can have!
