Thursday Thoughts

Yikes!
Here I go!

What the heck have I gotten myself into??

 Student: "Why teacher have hair like rooster?"

Next week I launch into the virtual teaching world.  Did my training this past Tuesday and today I will teach a "mock" class with my trainer.


All online.
Gulp.
English to Japanese students.
Do I speak Japanese?
Why no I do not.
I am told it is not necessary, my students will know a good bit of English.

Wish me luck!

love the hair. :-) You'll do great. At least these students know a good deal of English to begin with and they probably can read it even better. Good luck. CG

I'm really excited for you. I can't imagine how it works when you don't speak the language. Can't wait to hear more about it. I love roosters!

More power to you, and much good luck. I believe "Sayonara" means goodbye. Does that help?

Good luck on this!

If there's any way I can help, let me know? I know a teensy smidgen of Japanese (lack of use has caused what I know to go very rusty), but I also have tools at my fingertips as well.

Good for you Ann for teaching English to foreign students.
I have always admire how good you are with your writing on your blog, your great sense of humors and your willing to help where ever there is a need. You are going to be an AWESOME teacher ! I just know it.
Will you get to skype with your students? Keep us posted.
