Well I guess it’s about time for an update to my testimonial here.
I am now 33 years old and I am running three schools.

I just wanted to post a short story here about something really special which one of my students did for me recently!
I like to make a note of my student’s birthdays and several of them somehow also know mine.
Well, about a week ago I received the following message from a student:
I have a question!☆ but its late
If you don’t’ mind me bringing it, tell me what kind of cake you like.
lemon cake, um…….. can’t remember what I can bake…
some of them are rounded and some of them are square.
Do you mind if I bring cake in class? For your Birthday
like… cheese cake, cheese cake with pumpkin, chocolate cake, orange cake,
If you have any request, tell me! (not only the ones above)
I have a weakness for chocolate so I humbly suggested a chocolate cake and would you believe my student came to class a few days later with the most delicious decadent hand-made chocolate cake I have ever tasted!
After opening the cutely wrapped box and admiring this work of art I couldn’t resist so I grabbed three paper plates, napkins and teaspoons (nearest utensils in sight) and the two students and myself each enjoyed a piece of chocolate cake before our group lesson!
The cake was amazing and I enjoyed the rest of it over the following three days.
I was so impressed that one of my students cared enough to take the time to ask me what kind of cake I would like for my birthday and then make it all by hand and carry it to class; on a day when it was pouring rain outside because a typhoon was passing through!
I was left speechless and this caring act once again reminded me of the many special moments I have been able to share with my students over the past three years at Smith’s School of English.
Now if you think my birthday cake story was cool; check out what Craig Drayton over at Smith’s School of English Otsu recently wrote!
