      ... make sense in Japanese. The brand that made the shirt probably translated it directly from Japanese to English and the meaning got messed up. Instead of "anything" they probably meant "always" I'm sure this is how American shirts that have different languages on them would look in other ...

      ... parents requested extra English lessons. So that's where I will get to practice teaching more English. We will mostly focus on the alphabet for the 1st graders and phonics (sounding out words) for the older group. The only challenge is there will not be a Japanese teacher in the room to help if needed. Just me and the other English teacher. We aren't allowed to ...

      ... now. So I had to get ready for my first day of school. Tomorrow I'm going to just shadow the English teacher and see how he teaches his lessons. On Friday I will be on my own. I have a feeling I'll be doing more assisting because 1. I can't speak Japanese and the children only understand Japanese and 2. I haven't been asked to prepare a lesson plan for anything. So we shall ...
