"Stuff my Japanese students say" Episode 8

I noticed a boy and a girl sitting next to each other. The girl clearly pouting. I asked her what’s up.

Her: What is 悲しい in English?
Me: Sad.
Her: What is ひどい?
Me: Terrible.
Her: OK. I am sad because my boyfriend is terrible.
Him: OI!!

Good English lesson.

"Stuff my Japanese students say" Episode 7

Today was my first class with the new 1st year students. Each student was supposed to come to me and give a short introduction. Before they began, the teacher asked the students to list off important things to remember when giving an introduction. Along with “Make eye contact”, “Speak loudly and clearly” and “Smile”, they included such sage advice as:
"Try to look as cool as possible."
"Don’t fall down."
"You should actually speak and say stuff."
"Don’t hit the other person, that’s bad."

It’s gonna be a good year.

Last weekend some friends and I escaped to Okinawa. It was sunny and beautiful, which makes the April weather in Hokkaido all the more depressing. We spent a few days in Naha, checking out the Shuri castle, Himeyuri monument and a bad ass cave called Gyokusendo. But the highlight was definitely going to Zamami, about 50 minutes by ferry from the main port in Naha. Seriously, if you’re ever in Okinawa, go to Zamami. The beaches are gorgeous, the locals are friendly and the water is so damn BLUE.
Also there were sea turtles. omg.

One day, Spring.
I will find you.

Me: How are you?
Student: I’m tired and hungry and sleepy and I love you.

Spring Breaaaaak

It’s still chilly in Hokkaido, so I’m headed to Okinawa for a few days to remember what warm weather is like.

If the weather is crap the whole time I’m there, I’m gonna be so cross.

I don&#8217;t eat at McDonalds, but I really want to try this.
