Every little thing in my ordinary life 28

My student has come back
As I said before, I have a student, who is in the beauty business. She was in N.Y. for her work. Before she left Japan, I taught many phrases which can be used during her trip. I asked her how she went well in N.Y. after she came back.

‘The phrases you gave me were so useful. But the problem was I could hardly understand whay they are saying after I said something to them.’

As a matter of fact, she mailed me a few times while staying in N.Y., and reported her situations to me. The mail said the same thing. As the season 2, we’ve started a new program in order to improve her listening skills.

She had two tasks during her trip. One was to make up one bride and the relatives, and the other was to make up models appearing on a photo session. She told me the tasks were so tough because she had to do everything without her assistants, but things went well. Several accidents were happned, though. After the talk, she said to me, ‘They said they will not have the sessions in February.’ Oh, my Gosh, it means, I’ve lost my opportunity to go to N.Y. with her.

After that, we talked about how we(I mean, she) could get another offer from her clients oversea.

To say I love you. Where?
One day, I received a mail from my old friend. The mail said he wanted to know a good place like seashore on which you could enjoy sunset. The following sentences in his mail continued like this; ‘I’m in love with a woman. She is much older than me.’ Surprisingly, the woman is 18 years older than him.

‘Should I say… good for you? Anyway, being in love is good. Yeah, we have many places for a date. You can say you love her anywhere I tell.’

I hope he makes it.

Present perfect… a kind of tense?
I’ve been struggling with present perfect. I guess present perfect and present perfect continous are the most confusing part among Japanese English learners. My impression for them is, maybe I might be wrong, ’emphasis of status or actions.’ Ummm…I must dig them more. I think I should call them a kind of tense, by the way?
