One of the things that I love about being an English Instructor/Coach at Smith’s Eikaiwa Kyobashi is sharing things with my students. We share stories about traveling, photography, sports, family, etc. I often to talk to my long term student Takahashi san about his love of scuba diving, underwater photography and music. I was very impressed when he told me that he plays in an orchestra. I’m hoping to be able to see one of his concerts in the near future.
Yesterday we had an enjoyable Eikaiwa session. Takahashi san had a birthday this month so I surprised him with a little cake and some cool drinks. The best moment for me was seeing the surprised look on his face when I brought the cake into the classroom.
It was one of the greatest feelings I have had so far in Japan. I’m looking forward to sharing many more happy moments with my students.
