We did self-introductions. (自己紹介をした)

We did the exercise, "What did you do last week?”

One-by-one we each spoke about what we did last week. 

And somebody asked the person who talked a question.

Keiko talked about her trip to Vietnam.

The dishes she showed looked delicious. The air there does not seem to be good. We enjoyed her presentation very much.

Expressions and Proverbs by Doug. (ダグさんによる言い回しとことわざ)

Sunday was the Vernal Equinox - The first day of spring!
We learned the expression, "An arm and a leg."

We practiced some other English, and learned some bad puns like:
Did you hear about the guy whose whole left side was cut off?
He's all right now.

Computer teacher, Doug taught us about Skype.

He taught us about the convenience of Skype. He showed a group video chat with Masanori and Kimu, between three people. Then he called the cell-phone of his younger sister Cathy in Boston. It was 1:00 a.m. Boston!
