天気: 晴 行事: 赤来中

今日はいい日でした。4つの英語授業を教えました。昨日、2年生はいじめの問題があったので、授業が中止してしまいました。それから、今日2時間で2年生に教えました。1番目のは突然におかしい気持ちがありました。授業中で、先生の日本語を聞いたり、生徒の顔を見たり、しながら、僕は「ああっ!本当に日本に住んでいるぞ!」と考えました。1年間半以上、ここにいても、まだこの感じがありますねえ!

Weather: Sunny Plan: Akagi JHS

Today was a good day. We taught 4 English classes today. The 8th grade English class was cancelled yestersday because a bullying incident, so we had 2 hours of English classes today. In the first one I had suddenly had a weird feeling. I was listening to the teacher speak Japanese, and watching the students faces when I realized, "AH! I really am living in Japan!" I can't believe I'm still having this types of feelings even though it has been over a year and a half since we came here!

  • 国歌 こっか kokka national anthem

    And what gets me is that School Song is "kouka" (which sounds the same to "kokka" my ears) so I don't know how everyone knows what to sing at opening ceremonies, when they sing both.

    I can't believe I'm still having this types of feelings even though it has been over a year and a half since we came here!

    I know exactly what you mean! Actually, I'm having a lot more of those moments in the second year than the first year. Not sure why.
    • I know, I didn't have these feelings too much when I first came to Shimane, but went I was a foreign exchange student I was really amazed for the first week or so.
