Yes ENW is going to be in the north-west cities of Liverpool and Manchester l, the homes of The Beatles, Liverpool FC, Oasis and of course England’s most successful club – Manchester United.

ENW will start in Liverpool with a visit to where it all started for the most famous pop group in the world before moving across the city to the Albert Dock.

161 In…Amsterdam!

August 26, 2014


This is the first special summer edition of Hiroshima University's English News Weekly Podcast. In 2013 ENW travelled three incredibly interesting European cities -- Paris, Edinburgh & Lisbon. This summer, ENW is on the move again to another 3 European cities. The first is the relaxed and cosmopolitan capital of the Netherlands -- Amsterdam. ENW has Amsterdam before -- but only the airport! So we are looking forward to visiting four fascinating locations around this beautiful canaled city.

ENW will start with the Venice of the North -- the beautiful and famous Amsterdam Canals, we will then move on to goggle at some Dutch masters before travelling on to a free open air concert by a canal and then finally our last stop will hopefully quench our thirst with one of Holland's most recognisable drinks.

広島大学English News Weeklyの夏の特別編をお届けします!

2013年、ENWはヨーロッパの3つの街―パリ、エジンバラ、リスボン―を旅しました。いずれも大変面白い街ばかりでしたね。この夏、ENWはふたたびヨーロッパに飛び、新たに3つの街を訪れます。第1回の今回旅するのは、オランダの首都で、穏やかな雰囲気の国際都市アムステルダム。ENWはかつてこの街を取り上げたことがありますが、その時は空港の話だけでした。そういうわけで今回は、この美しい運河の街にある、4つの魅力たっぷりの場所をお楽しみいただきましょう。

最初は、北のヴェニスと呼ばれる、あの美しいアムステルダム運河。次にオランダ絵画の大家に注目し、運河の無料野外コンサートを訪れ、最後にオランダを代表するあの飲み物で乾きを癒すことにしましょう。
