Dear Sensei

Dear Tsuneko Sensei, Kentaro Sensei, Amitani Sensei, Kawanishi Sensei,

恒子先生、健先生、網谷先生、河西先生へ、

I am proud to report that I’ve led a group of 24 students to Japan through the Jenesys 2.0 project implemented by the government of Japan last week. It seemed that whether it were the students, our new Japanese friends who were in the exchange programme with us and even the Japanese International Cooperation Center coordinators had a memorable time that will not be forgotten for a long time.

先週、日本政府のJenesys2.0の活動のわけで、生徒たちが24人と一緒に、日本へ行きました。生徒たちも、交流のおかげで友達になった日本人も、ジャイスの方も、懐かしくて長い時間に忘れなかったメモリーを憶えそうです。

14 years ago, I’ve started studying the Japanese language at Yano Language School.  Whatever you have taught me, I’ve taught it to the students. Whatever I’ve learned, enabled me to work smoothly with the coordinators from the Japan International Cooperation Center. Even though my Japanese is probably still in bits and pieces today, I’ve learned a lot from you.

14年前に、「矢野レゲジ学校」で日本語を学んで始めました。教えてくれたことを生徒たちに教えてあげました。学んだことのおかげで、ジャイスの方と仕事がやさしかったです。たぶん、今の日本語もばらばらしますけど、とても勉強になりました。

I would like to share with you a few photographs of the trip, as a testimony of what you have empowered me to do.

これから、いくつかの写真をShareしたいんです。これで、先生は私が今までにできることをエンパワーしてあげる証明です。
