Last Saturday, July 2nd, was the final lesson at the Kenkatsu Center until August 24th. That means that there is no lesson August 3rd, 10th or the 17th. There are two lesson on Saturdays at the Center. This was the second one. On this day, one student, Makiko-san brought a guest (her home-stay friend) to the lesson. Of course, she told us that she would. Over the last couple of years, she has brought other students to the class. We were all excited about it. This time she brought Jan Smekal from the Republic of Czech. He is 21 years old. He is in Japan for almost a month. His trip was sponsored by the Lions Club. At the lesson we decided to start with questions from the students. One student spoke to him in Czech language. That as cool. Another student read a speech that he prepared. He welcomed Jan to our class and then told of his visits to Czech. Then questions from all of us. The final 25 minutes was presentation that Jan prepared for us. He introduced the culture with names and places from his home country. His English was very good and easy for us to understand. Thanks Jan and Thanks Makiko.
