I attended "Asakatsu" taken place at Macdonald's in Tajimi. "Asakatsu", maybe we can call it as "early bird" but I'm not sure. "Social meeting"? or "Gathering?" Whatever.
It was a quite wonderful experience to discuss various topic with people who met for the first time. (actually I have known of them but only on "Facebook." I sometimes go to a Udon shop, named "Sottaku" in Tajimi and the shop owner introduced me to the community. I wanted to attend the "Asakatsu" but I failed. Finally, I'm involved there!! It's eyeopening and makes me think why I teach English to students. That's "to use in the real world," absolutely!!
Anyway, It's time to end up today but I'll participate in the Asakatsu when I can.
