November is almost over, which means it’ll be the end of the year before you know it. And Christmas is coming – which I kind of forget about living in Japan, because it’s not such a big holiday here. But yesterday I got a very nice package from family in New Zealand – and in it was this beautiful Christmas card, I think it was hand-painted by my cousin. So that was exciting and it got me thinking about Christmas.
Yesterday I went shopping at my local supermarket, which is great place to go shopping. And I bought this sweatshirt, which I really like, partly because I like the colour and the design but I also love what is written on it. This is a classic modern Japanese style of T-shirt or sweatshirt – with the strange English writing. So I thought I’d talk about it today because today is mistake day. Often the writing on this kind of clothing doesn’t make any sense or it kind of makes sense but it’s full of mistakes.
Today’s guest is Nick. He’s from somewhere near Philadelphia, in the United States. He’s been teaching English in Japan for five years. And he currently teaches young children at an English school in Hokkaido.
