It was the first day of my new English teacher, so I introduced myself.
I said, "I have two kids." and she asked to me, "How old are your children?"
I answered, "The oldest is the second grade in high school, so she's sixteen years old." Then she said, "So she's in the tenth grade?" I counted it up and answered, "No, the eleventh." She quickly noticed the difference of the school system between in the U.S. and Japan and said that she made a mistake.
When I introduce myself in the first class to the new teacher every year, I have to pay attention about that. However this year I couldn't explain good enough again.
I'm still learning.
