PostHeaderIcon ノーアアアア

There is a woman that sits next to me at work who drives me insane. Today she has a massive show class with about 70 people coming to watch her. Next year they are introducing mandatory English classes to 5th and 6th grade students at elementary school. My school in Tano has been chosen as an example school and so this class is pretty important. However, I don't know why she is involved because she is not the homeroom teacher. More importantly... her English is so diabolical that I can't believe she has the audacity to get involved so much. For example, she has just asked Noah how to say:

My name is
Nice to meet you
Slower please
And last but not least... the alphabet. The alphabet.

Noaaaaaa. Noaaaaaaa. Mai naemu izu.... Mau naemu izi.... srrroooaaaa purease.... srrrooa puuureaaase. A A A B B B SHI SHI SHI.

I lost the plot when the whole office joined in with a massive rendition of Nice to meet you nice to meet you nice to meet you. You know... I learned how to say that in my first week here. I suppose I should go back to Scotland and teach a show case class on primary school Japanese.

Can't.... stop..... complaining.
