The lights are up, the trees are decorated, the Christmas CD’s are playing, the presents…well, they’ll be done when the stores close on December 24th….the Christmas parties and end of year parties are keeping everyone busy, and we wanted to take some time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.
This year came and went so fast, and it really was not a good year for the world as stock markets tumbled and we forgot to pay attention to the environmental crisis, but for Yuichi and I at Kamishinjo it was a great year!! It was a year full of new beginnings, new experiences and new friendships. We hope that next year will be even better and we hope that you all had lots of things to be grateful for in 2008 and much more to look forward to in 2009!
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy and prosperous 2009.
Carol and Yuichi

Carol and Yuichi,
Thank you so very much! You look so happy in the picture. Anyone could see that you are enjoying what you are doing. Yes, there were many problems this year, but it was actually pretty good for us Smith’s franchisees. After all problems might also be opportunities, right? The reality is that Smith’s is simple the best for both students and teachers, especially in these trying economic times. It is times like this that many people realize that working to become good at English is important for job security, their future job and enrichment of their lives. So, Merry Christmas to you and please enjoy the New Year too!

Thanks Carol and Yuichi. All the best in 2009!
