Asadora ("morning drama") is a common name of Renzoku Terebi Shosetsu ("serial TV novel"), which is a Japanese serial TV drama program aired on NHK. Asadoras have been popular among Japanese people, especially the elderly. Hanako to An ("Hanako and Anne") and Massan are the 90th and the 91st Adasoras, respectively. Both of them have many scenes where the characters speak English. For that reason, I used them as English teaching materials at public lectures open to the local community. This paper reports on the teaching of English through Asadora, including the results of the questionnaire conducted to the participants and the handouts used in the lectures.
