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

We studied conversation situations.

Situation 1.
One student
ordered lunch in restaurant.

Situation 2.
Another student was a
dog trainer and Doug was the client.

Situation 3.
Doug was a tourist on a train and Katsuyo helped him (and they both missed the station).

Situation 4.
Takato wanted to buy an English book at a book store. The salesclerk was Doug, the computer teacher.

Chinese whispers.

First, teacher Doug whispered, "Next week the U.S. ambassador to Japan will come to Hibikinokai and sing a song."

By the time it go to Sanae it became, "Next week Hibikinokai, we sing mother."

Finally the last person, Akie said, "Next weaker Hibikinokai will speaker mother."

Note: Ambassador Kennedy is not coming next week to Hibikinokai to sing a song.

Words with uni: unicycle, uniform, unicode, unicolor, unicorn, unilateral, unison, universal, university...

  Doug taught us the song "Swing Low Sweet Chariot". First Doug sang it alone and everybody politely applauded. Then we watched the famous Joan Baez version from Woodstock in 1969, and then we all sang it together.

Akie then requested, "Impossible" from the Musical "Cinderella" because of the pumpkin which turned into a golden carriage (a chariot).
