About me

I am Japanese homemaker living in Holland for a year and a half.
At the beginning I had troubles fitting in as everything was new to me.
But I've got use to living here thanks to other Lang-8 learner's support and encouragement.
My daily life is full of ups and down and lots of mishaps.
I'd like to express my honest feeling through a middle-aged woman's view point.
Please feel free to post your comment.

Testimonials from My Friends

Michael
Hi there, Thank you for adding me to your list of friend. Allow me to introduce myself. I am an English teacher in a high school in Taipei. Three years ago, I started attending a second-foreign language (Japanese) class with my students every Tuesday night after school. Soon they dropped off one by one but not me, because I was a teacher and as a teacher, how could I drop off and set a bad example. So here I am, still hanging there struggling... Hope I'll be able to write better day by day and in the meantime enjoy reading entries from you about your life in the Netherlands and later in Japan. Cheers. Michael
