so today i'm at Seka Jr. High, and because it's an exam day, i've got nothing to do but tell you folks about it, hehe. i already finished correcting the second-year kids' papers on their dream jobs, hehe. that was fun, though because they had a template, it wasn't all that FUNNY, just now and then a little goof that got me giggling.

anyway, after having spent two weeks at Tsurui Jr. High, coming to Seka has been like a resort vacation. it's closer to my home in Fukusaki, but it's in a beautiful part of Ichikawa full of trees and mountains. i thought the first school was small with 116 students. Seka's got about 45 kids total. still, unlike Tsurui, they have not only sports clubs, but art classes and a library and all kinds of stuff i think kids should have, heh. Nishihata-sensei, the English teacher, ACTUALLY speaks and understands english, which is something i will never take for granted again. he's a great teacher too, his classes are excellent. he's also got an incredibly smooth, soothing voice i could listen to all day. i'm tempted to ask him to record a japanese audiobook for me, hehe. the kids here are just as shy as the kids a Tsurui, but they are still better at wanting to talk to me and ask me questions. their English is also better though. there's wireless internet here too, if only my laptop would recognize it. oh well. i'm here one more day, then two days over at the Seka elementary school, and then i won't be back for a couple of months. ::sigh:: i would so prefer to stay here. no such luck though.

well, time to go back to pretending to do some work! catch you all later!
