杂谈

Ok!  So yesterday was my 3rd day the school.  I had 3 classes with 2 different teachers.  The first class was a second year class, and the other two classes were first year students.

The second year class was much more talkative than the first day.  The teacher gave me a class agenda before the class so I knew what to expect.  Mostly it was reading, and repeating after me.  They learned some new vocabulary, then read a passage in a story, then answered some comprehension questions.

Then the other 2 class were first year students.  I was a little concerned since they would be the youngest and the least experienced in using English, but they seemed ok with the basics.  Again, it was mostly reading and repeating.  The second class was most talkative.  Before class began me and the Japanese teacher were waiting outside the classroom and some of the girls came out and tried to talk to me.  They introduced themselves and were super surprised to learn I was from Canada.  When I walked into the classroom the kids immediately started trying to guess where I was from.  Most said China or Korea, so when I took out my Canadian flag I heard this great big "EHHHHHHHHHHHH?!??!?".  Lol, cute Almost <wbr>a <wbr>week <wbr>now <wbr>:D

Later that day I stayed to help a girl with her English speech contest.  It was quite long and the poor thing has to remember it all in 3 weeks Almost <wbr>a <wbr>week <wbr>now <wbr>:D  The speech had some difficult words in it and I'm kind of worried if she'll be able to get the pronunciation right and memorize all of it in time.  But after their Sports Festival this weekend we'll have more time to practice Almost <wbr>a <wbr>week <wbr>now <wbr>:D

On my way home that day I passed by the baseball field where the boys' team was practicing.  They saw me, took off their baseball caps, bowed and said "See you!!"  I was so surprised and kind of embarrassed Almost <wbr>a <wbr>week <wbr>now <wbr>:D.  I feel like the kids are getting used to me being around faster than I'm getting used to being at the school.  But I'm glad some of them seem interested in English, and at least most of them seem to know the basics.  That plus a bit of my Japanese should make communication OK  Almost <wbr>a <wbr>week <wbr>now <wbr>:D

Tomorrow is apparently another day of Sports Day practice so I'm going to watch.  Sunday I'm going to go to the official Sports Day and see what it's all about.  Then after that there's a party with the teachers I'll be attending too.  I can't drink but it'll be a good way to talk to the other teachers in a less formal environment Almost <wbr>a <wbr>week <wbr>now <wbr>:D

I'm definitely liking this job more than the previous one.  No sales at all, just teaching, and the kids are so full of energy 
Almost <wbr>a <wbr>week <wbr>now <wbr>:D
