Hi, Andrew. I heard that you were a member of the shogi club.
That’s right, I was. I quit a long time ago.
Why did you quit?
Relationships between people were kind of difficult.
Do you know why the club has that strange rule?
You mean about no dating being allowed? Sota made it.
It’s because he liked one of the members, and another member started dating her. That’s why he made that rule.
Arnold, this is so exciting! I’ve never been to an event like this before!
You’re in the movie, Yayoi, so you deserve to be here.
I had so much fun working with you at Tokyo Tower last summer.
Yes, thanks to your performance, we had a great scene there.
Do you think I could be an actor?
Yes! Your English is great, Yayoi. Due to my thick accent, people couldn’t even understand me at first.
And now, I’d like to introduce a good friend of mine who writes beautiful haiku. Here is Cindy Robinson.
Thank you, Mr. Emori. I’ve never read haiku in front of an audience before, so I’m nervous.
Just relax, and you’ll do fine.
OK. So, I will read a haiku I wrote in a Japanese tea garden.
I’m sorry, Cindy. Could you speak a little louder, so everyone can hear you?
Sure, no problem. So, here goes… “In the light of autumn …”
Bill, do you have a minute?
Sure, Cynthia. I was just practicing for the upcoming tour.
Actually, that’s what I need to talk to you about.
What about the tour?
It’s Derek. He broke his leg.
He broke it while skiing with Doris. He’s in the hospital now.
How long will it take to heal?
At least two months. As a result, we have to cancel the tour.
I can’t believe this!
金曜日の Say It In English!
I can’t seem to improve my English.
I think that’s because you don’t study English every day. Native speakers use English every day. That’s why they’re so fluent.
Why don’t you start listening to Radio Eikaiwa? Then, you can study English at least five days a week.
How was your trip to Nara?
Thanks to the information you gave me, I enjoyed it a lot.
But since there are so many places to visit, I extended my stay there, and I ended up broke!
