International Forum–The suspicious eyes (1)

Japan and culture, Terakoya, The world and everything

Japan seen from the outside “Why?”

The story that happened was an event that occurred four years ago. The time when I was teaching Thai language to Japanese students at a private university in Tokyo, Japan. It’s a  new semester. That year, I entered the classroom with complacency.

I wanted to know my students who wanted to Learn Thai language came from where.  For example, every year there are a few students who choose to study Thai. With surprise in that year there were only male students who chose to study Thai.

I  know he is a very serious student who studied Thai  language when he was fresh man and sophomore year . In addition, he is a quiet student, so he will not be in line with my eyes, no matter how much I explain or give various stories. For some reason his gaze is he is  often looking at my chest.

It is easier to teach a language class where there are few students rather than teaching a student in class. Not only the teacher but also the students will have the tendency to  be tensed and tired.

No matter how much I explain Or tell him stories. He never looked or caught my eyes even once. On the contrary, his eyes would staring at my chest.
