That was interesting!

As I mentioned before, I gave my own English lesson at my son's junior high school yesterday. As you can easily imagine, I was a wee bit nervous, but my cowardice was blown away when I entered the classroom. Many students said to me, "Hello!" or "I'm so excited to listen to your lesson." What wonderful students they are! Thanks to them, I calmed down and put myself together. lol
On top of that, there was a substitute homeroom teacher and he was so funny. His character made me more relaxed.

At the beginning of the lesson, we did warm-up activities. These activities made me revved up lol
Throughout the lesson, I enjoyed a whole lot and gave my own lesson as planned.

I hope someone might be inspired or this lesson might motivate them to chart their own courses. ;)

Love you, Grandpa!

I took my parents to our family grave. It's in the middle of the season called Higan or the equinoctical week. During the week, we have a custom that we visit our family graves and pray. Lately, not everyone has visited, though....

As I had expected, a lot of cars were crawling along the street, bumber to bumper.

Anyway, we cleaned, put some flowers and incense sticks on the grave. I love my grandpa, who passed away on my second birthday. I was too young to remember how much he loved me, but I always feel that he's beside me.
Grandpa, I do love you!

I'll give an English lesson at my son's school.

I regularly visit my son's junior high school, juggling work and chores. I manage to make time although I have a lot of irons in the fire.


To help junior high schoolers learn English, listening skills in particular.
This is a crush course and the students I help every week are in their third year of junior high school.
Actually, I don't teach English because there is an English teacher at the school gives the lessons. I usually help the students, but I will give my own lesson next week because the teacher is going away on business. That sounds interesting, isn't it? My experience in teaching English will go a long way towards the lesson.
I have already planned what to do during the lesson. The only thing that I am a little worried about is if the students will be interested in or not. I had framed the lesson plan to ignite their curiosity, of course, but I am not sure if the idea will work

Anyway, the only thing I should do is have fun, isn't it?

I shouldn't be satisfied.....

I regularly take part in an English workshop and try to improve my English. Everyone knows that I am an English buff and I also refer to myself that way as well. I can say what keeps me going is English although it sounds exaggerated. Don't get me wrong. Even though we call like that, it is a different matter when it comes to my English level.

I don't have trouble communicating with others in English, but I really realized that I shouldn't be satisfied with my current skills. I should go back to when I originally started to brush up on my English. I used to write and post as many English journals as possible, try to skype with my friends to practice speaking, listen to English radio programs and learn new words. Besides, I used to write down new words from the papers and try to use them.

I have to admit that I am liable to let myself become complacent. There is no denying the fact that I was satisfied with my current skills. However, I have rethought it. I should turn over a new leaf.

My lovely PC...

Last Sunday, my pc died and I had no choice but to have it repaired....It's been only three months since I bought! Can you believe that? No way!
The HDD needs replacing...

I'm posting this entry on my smart phone...but...I prefer my pc when typing...

Well, my pc comes back tomorrow morning...I have to set it up again...
