I was allowed to accompany Dr Tanabe to Utsunomiya, Tochigi, where he gave a series of talks in a teacher development seminar.
It was a good opportunity for me to review my phonetic knowledge that I believe I had learned before.
Yesterday, Dr Tanabe gave me a chance to read it aloud in front of teachers. I learned by heart the paragraphs in the book, so I was able to produce them. However, it was not that good. I read without putting my heart to them.
Participating in the seminar led me to realize how I got started about reading aloud. I will restart processing it so that I can present my English to a group of professional teachers without any hesitation. In that respect, my trip to Utsunomiya paid off.
I would like to thank everyone who gave me a chance. (Blue Sky)
