On usual Sunday, we are so busy at work.
Also today I was awfully tied up! Sorry Kiyoshi, I couldn't care of you a whole day.
An early morning lesson tomorrow would be available for me. Please get up earlier tomorrow.

Kiyoshi's English Education Report Vol. 23: Japan Philippine Vietnam
As of yesterday's,
Yesterday's lesson was started with the review of the greetings learned the previous day. And after checked how firmly he memorized them, I showed him a globe for the first time. It seems he found it very very interesting ^^
In that precise moment, I asked him where the sun and moon was. He showed a confused look for a while. Then he pointed at a place around the North Pole on the globe. I couldn't help but chuckling and I taught him how the universe is structured. So, yesterday's lesson was started from the things like that, just before getting down to the lesson ^^

The words he newly learned this day were Philippine and Vietnam. Both of them were chosen by himself.
