This is a country which I have not had the pleasure to visit yet though I know several of my fellow franchisees have visited, especially given the amount of holidays we have here at Smith’s School of English, and it seems to be a very popular destination for Japanese people as well.
Just today at Smith’s School of English in Fuse I listened to one of my students describe to me how “eager” she is to visit this country for the first time later this year.
“Eager” coincidentally also happens to be one of the words we studied today in our vocabulary lesson.
She is excited at the opportunity to brush up on her English prior to her visit especially because she will be having dinner with people from all over the world at a function she will attend.
Listening to this student’s excitement about going to New Zealand reminded me of another student from Smith’s School of English in Horie, whom I consider a close friend, who is realizing her long-time dream of living and working in New Zealand.
You can read her story here at “Dreams Come True”.
She came back to Japan last Christmas to visit her family and we enjoyed a nice dinner together. I enjoyed listening to her tell me all about her new experiences and challenges living and working in an all English environment.
It’s exciting to know that we, even in a small way, can help to enrich our students’ lives through the study of English at Smith’s School of English.
