No Chance to use English...
I haven't used English since I had long break for going to the English school last late spring, where I had had private lesson from the young American teacher. Haha, even if I call English-lesson, I was having fun chatting in English once a month bringing my own topic. Actually, the fee I need to pay only for once (¥7,000) is way expensive now for me; who is surviving hubby's pension money. Well, I haven't contacted the school； I don't know if I have a membership there or not (^^;)
Far before that, I had a group lesson with 4people; but the relationship didn't go well... (haha, you might be able to guess why. I must have taken up much time rather than other members. I should have been more reserved.)
Anyway, even if how much I can hear the news from satellite broadcasting, watching movies on TV or rented videos, I have no one to chat with about it in English. Hubby has no interest in English, much less topic like presidential election this year in America from CNN and so on.
In Japan, we still have not much chance to get in touch with or enjoy natural, living English with native speakers. I deeply grateful for you all of my blggie friends to give me chances to look into expressions I don't know in your posts and kind comments, although it is a written form (p;)
Oh, how I crave for someone to talk with in English!!!
I'm willing to roll out the red carpet & serve a gorgeous meal if any of my friends would like to pop over through the ocean to visit me, hehe,
