Happy news !!!

Amid the avalanche of bad news surrounding us, I am happy to tell you some good ones.

First, I got a message from a person in Tokyo.

It says that they (I use the word “they” to protect the person’s privacy by hiding their gender.) enjoy reading my webpage and find it amusing.

I had known from Google Analytics that there are some frequent visitors to my website in cities like Tokyo, Sapporo, and Osaka.

It is so encouraging that one of them contacted me to say hello.

Second, one of my students sent me the LINE message saying that she finally got this high score on TOEFL.

She has been working hard to make her dream come true, which is to study abroad. So it’s a must for her to get a satisfactory score on this popular exam.

As we all know, TOEFL is very difficult even for advanced learners. But she made it at last – after the lengthy losing streak.

Congratulations! I’m so proud of you !
