Thank you for sharing the time!

These days, I invite a few of my fellow English-lovers to spend time for English. I'm always desperate to practice speaking in English. When I have spare time for English, I call fellow English-lovers to study English together.

This morning, a friend came over. She's eager to practice speaking in English as well. We don't have opportunities to use English in our daily lives, so we very often spend time for English together. At the start, we chatted about a range of topics from trifling matters to effective ways to improve our English skills. After that, we got down to reading an essay I had picked up. It was about "shoganai": It can't be helped or That's the way it goes. The author said Japanese are apt to settle disputes or matters by saying "shoganai" even if they're against other opinions. The reason is some Japanese don't want to debate or aren't good at doing that. Others avoid discussing so that they don't offend others' feelings. The author has a point, I thought. I very often say "shoganai" when I face some problems. And then I seek other solutions...haha

Anyway, I'll not easily have spare time for English soon because I'll have to work. I appreciate her managing to have spare time whenever I invite her to spend time for English.
