We went to S junior high school in Tochigi. The purpose of our visit was to listen to Dr. Tanabe's class and teach some of the ways to use a dictionary to the first grader.
In this class, the most surprising thing I thought was how mature their thoughts are. The reason is that the questions students asked were to the point; “What is the best dictionary for us to use?”, “How do we study English?”. They thought about not only how to use a dictionary but also how to learn English by using a dictionary. They are down to the earth more than what I was.
When I taught the students, some of them listened to me earnestly. On the other hand, we are not. I realized that we should go back to the basis once again and rethink about my English.
Finally, I really appreciate for all people who gave us such a wonderful experience. (Morihiro)
