gingko trees

The Gingko Trees have reached their full glory now.

The rich yellow leaves can be seen from Tosa Road.

If you venture up to the park, you will find a golden
carpet of gingko leaves ...

"Silver Bazar"

This morning we went to "The Silver Bazar" in Kochi City

The room was filled with hand-made goods such as :

okarinas, preserved flowers, bags, bead jewlery,
knitted goods, woven goods, jams

.... and that kind of thing.

I bought a Christmas flower decoration made by T san.
It is very pretty!

Please look out for it next class ...

Some of my students were unsure as to how to use
the word absolutely in English conversation.

So, today let's learn 2 ways to use absolutely very naturally!

To mean "yes" strongly or when agreeing with someone .

Do you like ramen ?
Absolutely! (= Yes, I do!)

To mean "very" , to emphasise a point.

Did you enjoy your ramen?
Yes! It was absolutely delicious! (= it was very delicious!)

That's all for today folks!

a piece of cake ...?


I decided to make a birthday card by hand instead of
using the computer.

I thought it was going to be difficult, but actually
it was a piece of cake* !

(* to be a piece of cake is an idiom meaning to be easy)
