     I had been learning English from an Australian lady for two and half years. She was gone to Australia with her husband last Friday. She had been here in Japan for 5 years. 

     A friend of mine found an advertising of an English lesson on a free paper two years ago. He and one of his friends went to her to take a trail lesson one day, and I accompanied them. After that, he and I decided to take her class. After one and half year, he stopped taking her class because he has many things to do except for studying English.

     One day I bumped into a lady who I know in the subway. She and I used to go to the same English school. She told me she was going to quit the school. Oh, what a coincidence! I introduced the Australian teacher to her right away, and the lady and I started taking her lesson together. That was about one year ago…Time flies…

     She and I went to Centrair, the airport with another student of hers to show her and her husband off last Friday. There are many shops and restaurants like a shopping center in the airport. So we enjoyed shopping there and had dinner to see our teacher. When I had to say good-bye to her, I couldn’t say almost anything. I couldn’t stop weeping. I felt really sad.

      Thank you for everything, Amelia. I won’t forget you and your class forever.

  1. 僕自身、何度か留学に行っているので、見送られる立場で、こういう事がありました。 別れる間際は辛いですわな・・・。 アメリカで一緒に勉強していたイタリア人を見送りました。 そのときは辛かったなぁ・・・。 会えない可能性の方が遥かに高い訳だから。 まぁ、その後は就職する前に会いに行ったんだけどね。

  2. Hi, Kenny! Thank you for your comment. Oh! You have studied abroad many times!
    How wonderful! Yes, I felt really sad when I had to say good-bye to my teacher at the airport…I am going to go to Australia to see her someday soon!
