She tried to talk

This morning I gave my regular lesson to a woman who is in her 60's. I've written about her a few times on my blog, though, I'd like to do that again because I was amazed at her improvement in English.

Well, she got a call from her relative last Wednesday. The call was that her aunt who lived in Oregon, America had passed away.
She, my student, loves her so much because she was always kind to her and gave her warmhearted advise all the time. Not only was she, but her hubby was also kind and sincere, she said. They've stayed in touch for a long time.
She told me, however, she didn't manage to contact them. She had been worried about them, but she got it now.
The other day she tried to call him, having a lot of butterflies in her stomach. Whenever he answered her call, he right away said "Here is your aunt". As such she didn't need to speak English. However, this time she had to talk to him in English.

She told me she was so glad he understood what she said. She hadn't managed to communicate in English before even though she wanted to do so. Then, she thought her English has improved little by little and the experience gave an impetus to her, she added.

In fact, I was relieved to hear that because I'm always seeking for the best way to improve her in English. At that time, I felt my advice wasn't off the beam and I'm honored to be a teacher.^^
