SBJPG, we had another round of ALL THINGS JAPAN (SBJPG) last night. I spoke mainly about cultural workshops I have planned in Japan while Genya and Masanaga (exchange students from Japan) shared difficulties they have experienced with learning English; not knowing when was the right time to join in a conversation/missing a chance to say anything. Once they told me what they had been feeling, I understood EXACTLY what they meant. This is a sort of thing I make a note to myself for my wanting to develop a system helping others learn foreign languages. Although I knew what they were talking about, it was nice to remind myself what it was like when I was experiencing the same thing. I hope Robert remembers Japanese he learned last night: Kocchie Douzo (Come this way, please)
Also Kotaro in Japan was with us (though different date) on Skype. He is about to start his new school (Tokyo KouGay University) soon – yes, you guessed it right: Photography Department! He is a Japanese liaison of SBJPG members in Japan. Arigato Gozaimasu!!
