I earlier wrote about helping a Smith’s School of English Tsukaguchi student prepare for working and studying abroad in Smith’s School of English Tsukaguchi Helping a Student Achieve His Dream. Recently I finished helping another student of English prepare for a stay abroad where he will be doing a homestay, studying English and playing American football. His name is Mihiro. He studied English with me in Tsukaguchi for about 7 months to prepare for a 10-month stay in Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A. Mihiro is just 15 years old but looks older because he is big! He is already in Phoenix now with his homestay family and speaking English every day! Before going to the U.S.A., he trained hard at his school’s football practices and weight trained hard getting ready for his trip. On Thursday nights, he came to his Smith’s English lessons and studied English conversation. I taught him as much English as I could during our short time together to get him ready for living in the U.S.A. He did a great job and his English improved. It was a pleasure teaching him English. I wish him all the best with school, football, his homestay and life in the U.S.A. I’m sure his English will improve even more while there. I hope he’ll continue studying English at Smith’s School of English Tsukaguchi when he returns to Japan! (^.^) Have fun, Mihiro!
