(Koshi, Kumamoto, Japan)
My name is Hiroshi. I am Japanese and 82 years old. I used to be an English teacher at schools. After retirement, I still continue studying English. I cannot abandon English in my life.
This summer, in August, I decided to go and study English at the language school in the Philippines for one month. And successfully I finished studying there and returned to Japan.
Naturally, the students there were all young, and they looked at me as if I were a living fossil. They were curious about me, and I became a kind of a celebrity. Some of them wanted to take a picture of me with them.
Of course, it was hard for me to live in a foreign country for a month, but with the help of the young students and teachers, I really enjoyed studying there.
I believe that it is because I have not abandoned English studying that I could have such a wonderful experience.
