They call me amy- sensei, it makes me smile whenever i hear it! Look how well-behaved they are!!!
Heres a little glimpse into everyday life in Shizuoka. Its getting warmer here so even tho cherry blossoms are thinning the chance of having a clear day and a good view of mt fuji are improving. My week consists of kindy 9-2 Monday to friday, where i have a class of 24 3 and 4 year olds with varying levels of english. 5 are new students who need to learn the routine etc, so its all a little chaotic, expecially seeing two of them are escape artists with basically no english!!! I then have tuition tuesday, wednesday and thursday nights, with children form the surrounding area ranging in age from 4 to 12. The aim of these classes is to get the kids using as much english as possible, so we play games, use flashcards and just have general conversation. Weekends (tho ive only had 2 here!) consist of going to the lemon shop (where everything is 100 yen- $1.15) going out to dinner, driving around looking for a furniture shop to buy some soft chairs (the car seats are not that comfy) and maybe going out in to the city. Hopefully this weekend karaoke!!!
Apologies to those of you
We had soem browning bananas and thanks to cyclone whatever it was in queensladn i didnt have the heart to throw them out!!!
who i mislead when calling where we live the mansion. By Japanese standards, it is a mansion because of the number of tatami mats on the floor. I also do not have a Black Manx cat, but this was the first animal i saw in Japan and i now see them everywhere!!
