Finally, I have completed!

As I wrote here before, I had been taking TESOL course. Finally, I have completed all of the tasks and sent them to my tutor.
They were rewarding. Luckily I have taken training at my company, so I didn't have difficulty completing every task although some tasks required me to take some time.

I am looking forward to my tutor's feedback. Without his feedback, I can't apply for its certification........

Helping Junior high school students

The junior high school that my son goes to offers us short-term classes in things like Yoga, English, Origami, Swimming, Badminton etc. The classes aren't for the students. Anyone can take the lesson they want. However, some classes are understaffed so they need help from volunteers called guest teachers.
When I got the information from my son, I was curious to help out, especially with English. Of course, if my schedules would be allowed. Besides, a student of mine, who goes to the same school, asked me to help her and other students.
That was why I decided to help as a guest teacher.

The lessons I was assigned are the high school exam prep class. Our main focus is the listening section. The first day I visited, the students who took the course seemed a little nervous, and to be honest I was, too. It was my first experience to take on that kind of the course at a public school.
First, I saw how far they could understand English. Interestingly, they were too shy, but they understood what I said to a certain degree. Only one problem I saw was that the amount of listening time wasn't enough. That was why they didn't know how to react or they weren't familiar with English sound.
In order to break the ice, I asked the teacher to give me some time at the beginning of each lesson.

Thanks to the warm-up exercises, they gradually seemed to feel relaxed and to turn on the English mode.
It is true that there is room for improvement to master better listening skills, but I felt there would be the potential to greatly improve their skills.

What the Heck!

The worst-case scenario happened to me.....

I had a car accident a week ago. It was my first experience and I NEVER EVER forget it!
This is the story:
When I was turning right at the intersection, the car had parked at a parking lot of the convenience store directly hit my car!
The traffic light was green and I made sure that there was no oncoming car or pedestrian. Just after I turned right, the car ran into my car! The car seemed to get in the opposite lane from the corner of the intersection. What the heck!
My car was too damaged to move at all. A lot of people around the business buildings were rush to help me out. Thanks to their help, we managed to park my car at the parking lot.
Fortunately, no one got injured....This is the only thing I can say, "I'm lucky."
As you can easily imagine, I needed to call the police, my car insurance agent and a tow truck and a rental car.....What with one thing and another, it took five hours after the accident happened!

The nightmare was going on. My car insurance agent called me and said, " In this case, it was the driver's fault. But, under the traffic law, it'll be a little your fault. And the repair cost will be 800,000 yen....Maybe, you'll have to pay the ten percents of the cost or so.... "

..............NO WAY!!!!........

But, I had my car inspected this February, so there was no choice but to repair.....
According to the agent, it will take about one month.....

I am missing my lovely car! Please come back soon!!
