Akie’s essay


■ English Class 
Today’s teachers and Participants: Masanorii, Doug, Michael, Koji, Katsuyo, Akie, Yoshio, Masako, Okuyama (Newcomer), Hidemi, Kayoko, Yumi, Takato, Seiko, Kuno, Keiko, Karin and Sanae.

    Masanori's Lecture                                                                                      
Masanori's lecture was on the many uses of the word "drive."

We studied conversation situations.

Situation 1.
Okuyama (newcomer) wants to make a cell-phone contract in a shop. The salesclerk is Doug, the computer teacher.

Situation 2.
Masako talked about a friend. The friend is Doug.

Situation 3.
Koji orders lunch in a shop. The waiter is Doug.

Masanori's advice: You should ask a shopkeeper questions until you understand, and decide.

   Doug's Lecture                                                                                               

We were not able to connect with Myles and Rosalie from New York at the usual time. But they did say hello when Doug came to the classroom. We missed the usual visit though and look forward to next time!
