Thank you so much for your blogs. I am very pleased to have you here as my teacher. You taught me many expressions and vacabulary and I gained lots of things about English. Please keep reading after you are back to your work as a BBC staff. I hope everything works best for you! - Best regards, Yumi.
It is my great pleasure that you are my teacher now. I am a lucky girl (*1) that I could meet 2 teachers here! Yes, I have been to Delhi once and was fascinated by her culture and architecture. I hope we exchange blogs and share our experience.
Now I'm talking about what was happened in Japan before 62 years.
Have you heard of Hiroshima? There had the atomic bomb explosion and about one hundred snd thousand(*2) people were dead. Today there(*3) had the ceremony at 8 am and prayed for the people who passed away.I visited there for my school trip in high school.
Hiroshima is very popular for shool trip because it is historical, such as atomic bomb museum or the dome which was burnt by the bomb. At the same time there has the famous shrine called 'Miyajima', which was built in the surface of the wave(*4). I mean this architecture was on the seashore.
It takes about 3 hours from Tokyo by express train called 'Shinkansen'. I think this is well-known to its shape, and it is really funny because you can see many people relaxing over alcohol or sleeping deeply in the confortable seats. It is very 'Japanese', I think! If you are a traveler from overseas, you can buy the discount ticket! It is worth visiting there :)
*1: I often heard the phrase 'Lucky girl!'. Can you also use 'Lucky woman'? Also, how can I express it with full sentence?
*2: I would like to mention 100,000 people. Should I use 'one hundred and thousand of people'?
*3: Should I use 'it' to mention Hiroshima city?
*4: Could you please teach me the right and sophisticated expression??
Sorry that I ask you so many questions....
Good night everyone!
