In my life I have had many jobs and have worked for many companies, but nothing has made me feel as appreciated as I do now being an English coach as Smith’s Eikaiwa. It is a great feeling to have my students thank me for “an enjoyable lesson” as they are leaving. It is an even better feeling when they arrive to class and use a word or phrase that we had studied the week before. I am always happy knowing that their English is improving and their goal of leaning a new language is being completed.
This week I experienced an unexpected and completely enjoyable sense of appreciation when one of my new Kyobashi students arrived for our lessons and presented me with this delicious treat. I was very surprised and delighted to receive them. Knowing that someone appreciates my efforts is an incredible feeling. Although I do not feel like I am working, I never want to stop doing what I’m doing and I never want to leave this beautiful country of Japan.
