We had our first day of class.
I got put in the 3rd year group... WTF?
I am honestly not sure how that happened... hehe
It seems too hard, but I will give it one more day and see if I might be able to make it work...
We have several different teachers this week... I believe they were provided by the YMCA or something like that (WTF?) because of the off-site H1N1 arrangement.
So they split us up into groups today and I got stuck in the hard one with 3 other people. The student to teacher ratio is awesome, but we will see if I can keep it up.
My teacher was sick (how stupid is that? let's infect the gaijin so we can have a freak out fest once somebody in our group starts showing symptoms of being sick).
Yesterday we said hi to this old man and he ran across the road and asked us where we were from. We told him Utah and he asked if we were from Salt Lake City excitedly. When we said yes he pulled out a picture in an abnormally fast fashion that was already to be shown in a plastic lanyard of some random Americans and said 'That is my garden!' haha.
A lady had her kids tell me Konnichi wa yesterday. It was cute.
Today some little kids said 'konnichi wa' and 'nice to meet you' and 'goodbye'.
So far so good... let's hope it keeps up.
