Joint lesson

Yesterday I had a joint lesson with a Nacos student (Hiroko) from Japan. Basically we, along with Michiko’s guidance, helped each other in using proper intonation when speaking in the foreign language. We traded stories based on each other hobbies and life. Though there was an apparent Japanese accent, Hiroko’s English was actually quite good and understandable. Unfortunately I was not the same. 😦 Even though I hear proper Japanese and when I speak it, to me, it sounds the same. I unconsciously have the tendency to accentuate certain syllables of the words. Sorry Hiroko! I hope your ears weren’t hurting too much!
