So here we are, back again from a long, long holiday and some of us must have relaxed so much we had indeed forgotten who we were for a day or two and what our chosen roles were in life!
On this first week back after a very eventful trip with my wife, I was greeted by smiling, happy, energetic and motivated English Conversation students at the Smith’s School of English in Kotoen スミス英会話 甲東園. I was quite surprised, to be honest, by the level of which some students had missed their weekly lesson. Everyone who was expected to come came and nobody was noticably late.
Of course I am happy about the 17 days we had off, but since most of the students had five days at the most, I felt rather privileged and didn’t put much emphasis on anything other than how much I missed them. I have been promoting the necessity of the long vacation as a way of combining Golden Week, Spring Break and Easter all into one required international package, an argument that seems to be rewarded with passive acceptance.
Anyway, back to work and happy as can be. Now time to start promoting again as a peak sales period is about to start at Kotoen.
