How the Japs learn English...

Many years ago, I went to Tokyo and every time I got lost and stopped someone on the street to ask for directions in English, I get that petrified look. I didn't understand why until I found out yesterday how English is taught in Japan.....

Ha! Ha! I like it.

So musical, so poetic, so dramatic, and above all....so oooooo sexy!

Wouldn't mind being taught a language in this way! Hope they have something like this too when I enrol for my Hindi class next month!

Lucky, you are a nice and jovial person.

You sure know how to lighten up seriousness on this blog. No wonder you got many visitors.

I am learning from you.

The thing about choosing an eloquent leader is that: the person will one day out talk you and out wit you and even swindle you without you knowing. At the end of the day, he makes you come and listen to him every Sunday and even help you to part with your money for singing songs usually written by others.

And also, the itch to enact guarded laws of self interests will soon follow.

However, if you pick someone who is not given in to the exaltedness of eloquence( not without wisdom), you may find the common voice grows stronger as the powers dissolve into common good for all.
