Weather: Cloudy Plan: Akagi JHS

5th and 6th period was the 9th grade going-away party. The graduation is next week, but the going-away party is like a gradutaion put on by the 7th and 8th grade students. The teachers sang to the 9th graders, the 7th and 8th graders one-by-one called up the 9th graders and thanked and praised them, and we relived memories from the last three years. I have a lot of memories of the 9th graders, too. I will never forget them all. To the 9th graders, make a great future for yourselves!

One-Point English Conversation Class
with Trevor Lalish-Menagh and Ryoko Kawashima

Every month I live in the small mountain town of Iinan in Shimane, Japan I have to host an English Conversation TV Show that is shown in the county I live in.

Most of the 20 minute show is Ryoko and I talking to each other in Japanese, but every show has a 2-3 minute English skit. At One-Point English Conversation Class there are a few of said skits. Please download and enjoy!

WARNING: That is some really BAD acting. This is what happened when people like me get to play in front of a camera.
