☆入口の「にほんごつかっちゃ、ダメよ~ダメダメ」の絵が人気

The English version is located under the Japanese version. 先ほど、男性がふらっと英会話スクールに入ってこられました。実は、先日いただいた絵手紙の写真を入口にも貼っているのですが、「とても気に入ったので、写真を撮って、Facebookにアップロードしてもいいですか?」と聞かれました。特に問題ないと思ったので、「是非、どうぞ」とお返事しておきました。(^^)♪ A man dropped by my English school a few minutes ago. He saw the picture I got from a friend of mine the other day on the entrance door and got interested in it. The Japanese phrase in the picture, "Nihongo Tsukaccya Dameyo Dame Dame", means "Don't use Japanese. No-no.", or something like that. It's a very popular phrase in Japan by a famous comedian now. He asked me if it's OK to take a photo and upload it on Facebook. I thought there wer…

☆恥ずかしい・・・社会の窓が全開(ズボンのチャックが開いていた。)(>_<)

<日本語は、英文の下です。> When I was going to take a shower around 1:30 after working in my factory today, the Japanese staff of my English school made a phone call to me. She told me that a lady was going to come to the school at 2pm to ask me the details of our kids classes. As soon as I cut the phone line, I took a shower much faster than usual, changed my clothes, and was off to the school. The woman has 2 children who have taken English lessons for ages at another school in Osaka as well as the mothers dropped by my place the other day. After the presentation, I realized something wrong.... My fly was full open!!!!! Holy cow! The Japanese staff lau…

◇何故、次のWindowsは、"Windows 9"ではなく、"Windows 10"なのか?

<日本語は、英文の下です。> Do you know why next Windows version will be called "Windows 10"? I saw some interesting articles on the Internet. As you know, the most popular Windows version is "Windows 7" now. On the other hand, the newest version "Windows 8" isn't so popular as the previous version. Microsoft was going to release "Windows 9", but "7" is too popular now. So, "Seven" ate "Nine"(Seven Eight Nine). Therefore, the IT giant decided to name new version "Windows 10". Is that true? I think it's a joke. :D 何故、次のWindowsは、"Windows 9"ではなく、"Windows 10"なのか?いくつかのWebサイトで、ジョークとして取り上げられているのだが、これが面白い。(^^)♪ 現在、最もポピュラーなWindowsは、"Windows 7"ですよね。なので、7(Seven) 8(Ei…

☆KIDS生徒さんが笑わせてくれます。(笑)

<日本語は、英文の下です。> A kids student made fun of me the other day. However, I believe he was serious. BOY -> ME "You have a lot of hair on your arms, but why don't you have enough hair on your head?" I was shocked to hear that. X( What a honest boy! The female Japanese staff was trying not to laugh hearing what the boy was saying. After that, I replied to him. ME -> BOY "I have grown up arms' hair as much as possible instead of less hair on my head."(I was trying to hide my weakness.) BOY "In that case, it's better for you to plant your arms' hair on your head." ME (I was thinking....it's impossible, of course!!!) "That's a great ide…

☆留学していた、元生徒さんがレッスン再開!

<日本語は、英文の下です。> An ex-student of Gi-tech(my English school) who went to Australia last year for studying English suddenly came in today with her sister, who is a student of my school now. Apparently she's just come back to Japan. She got a new job at KIX, so she decided to take lessons at my place again. I'm so lucky! I can't thank her enough for her decision. オーストラリアに留学していた、元生徒さんが、現在Giテックに通っていただいている、お姉さんと一緒にご来校。どうやら、日本に帰国されたようだ。新しい仕事は、関空の職場らしく、また通って下さるとのこと。ツイてるなぁ、俺。(^^)♪ レッスン再開、ありがとうございます。m(_ _)m

☆62歳で、ひ孫?

<日本語は、英文の下です。> Today is the mother's birthday of a native English teacher in my school. She's just turned 62 years old. Although she's still 62, she has a great grandchild. Amazing.. I can't imagine a 62-year-old woman is a great grandmother.... 今日は、某ネイティヴ講師のお母さんの誕生日らしい。 62歳になったそうだ。 実は・・・、そのお母さん、既に「ひ孫」がいるらしい。(@_@) ろ、62歳で、「ひいばあちゃん」ですか????(絶句)

●マッサージに行ったところ・・・筋肉の話に。。。

I got a massage at Rinku AEON Mall on the way to my English school yesterday because I had a terrible feeling around my spine. The masseur asked me whether or not I often do sports or something, but I actually don't. I've just worked in my factory for a long time. She also told me that my arm muscles were great. Speaking of "arm muscle", if my memory serves me right, it's called "gun" as an American slang. I heard the slang from some native English speakers in mixi(a famous SNS in Japan) or an English lesson at NOVA a long time ago. 昨日、英会話スクール出勤前に、りんくうイオンモールのマッサージ店に行きました。背中が異常にだるいので。(^^)♪ 私のマッサージをはじめて担当する方が、「スポーツでもやっておられるのですか?腕の筋肉、すごいですね。」…
