Today we had a trial student! His name is Tomuhiro Kakimi. We had a great conversation about “Change”. Unfortunately, we didn’t have any other students today. Hope I will see you all next week!

Thank you for joining today’s Shijo FT class! Today’s topic were “Can you tell me about…?” and “Habits”. Today we learned an interesting but potentially confusing question, “where do we learn our habits?”. This question is asking what is the source or origin of the development of our habits. That is why when you answer the question, you answer with: “We learn our habits from…”. For example, today a student answered that she learned one of her habits from her co-worker. Her co-worker taught her about something or recommended something to her and it developed into her habit. It was a bit confusing at the time so I just wanted to clarify. Please let me know if there were still any questions. Take care!

Thank you all for joining tonight’s Shijo FT class. It was great to be back after my time away. I hope you all enjoyed today’s topics. Today we discussed “Corruption” and “Are you good at…?” I admit the first class’s topic was a bit more difficult than the second but I hope you were able to learn new vocabulary and phrases. If anyone still has any questions or is not clear, please feel free to ask me, I would be happy to help. Take care!

Thank you so much for joining today’s Shijo FT class! It was great to meet Tetsuaki and Yasumasa at today’s lesson. Today’s topics were “Cars and Driving” and “Wishes”. Today we had an interesting conversation, and I asked a question that confused a few students so I would like to repeat it again. Today I asked, “When you were a child, how would you answer the question, ‘What would you like to be when you grow up?'” This means the answer you would say when you were a child. It was a little confusing so I hope it is easier to understand now. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have, I would be happy to help. Take care!

Thank you all for joining the Shijo FT class today. I am glad some of you are excited to be back to work from the Obon holidays, while others are less eager to get back into the routine. Thank you for sharing about your experiences during your vacations, as well as your special birthday experiences. I was impressed by your responses to some of the questions. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask at next week’s class. Take care!

Thank you for joining the Thursday Shijo FT class. It was great to see Miki and to meet Toru today. Today’s topics were “Telephones” and “Healthy Lifestyle”. I felt bad for poor Toru who has to go back to work tomorrow from the Obon holiday at 7am. It is definitely going to be a challenge to go back to the daily routine, right? Miki and I discussed about healthy lifestyle and came across a useful word to know, “irrevelant”. This word means something is not connected to something else, such as “A is not connected to B” would mean “A is irrelevant to B “. In Japanese, you would call this, “関係ない”. Just FYI! Have a great weekend.

Thank you for joining today’s Shijo FT class. It was very enjoyable discussing with you today. Today’s topics were “Television” and “Classrooms”. Now that I think about it, I think “classrooms” may have been a weird topic at some points, it sounded like we were redecorating the Velco classrooms! But I did like hearing about your experiences as students and sympathized with your struggles as language students. I hope the tips I gave could help you! Also, I attached the link to the funny Geico commercials here below, feel free to take a look. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Thank you for joining today’s Shijo FT class! I really enjoyed our discussions together. Today we learned an interesting phrase in the 2nd class, something called a “dealbreaker”. A dealbreaker is the one condition that you set that will end the relationship or task. So, in the example we used, if I would like to date someone but I found out they are vegetarian and I don’t like vegetarians, I would end the relationship and call that a “dealbreaker”. It is a bit difficult to explain online but I can explain in person if you still have any questions. Take care!
