The other day I received an email with an attachment that had a thank you letter from every student that I presented to at Nagasaki Minami High School International Day (see entry here). Some of the letters were so thoughtful, so I want to share some of them with you. These kids really do have amazing English (I was shocked at how well they spoke and expressed themselves). I'm glad I put some Texas spirit into some of them. TEXAS TEXAS YEEHAW!!!
(NOTE: Typepad doesn't like word documents being copied/pasted into it, so the formatting may look a little strange.)
