こんばんは。Today, i received a thank you note from one of the readers who read my blog.

Message as below:
Hi Can Sensei,

I would like to say thanks for the blog posts about the grammars and stuff, it helped me when I was taking Japanese as an elective in university.


Throughout my 12 years of teaching, its small messages like this that kept me going on. Who am i compared to those sensei-tachi in the school? I have to settle the administration, teaching and discipline issues when students don’t submit homework.

Its hard to find a sensei nowadays that will chase students to submit homework, take 30 mins to mark a piece of homework patiently, tell student where to revise if he/she gets a wrong on the worksheet.

Today, we had a farewell dinner for one of the students and i was sad that my student is leaving for Austria. I am happy that he committed to continue to study Japanese when he is in Austria.

A good teacher would care for his/her students. So choose your teacher carefully and make sure you put in effort to study. I also want to tell my students,
