and Seiya

Seiya is quite the oppsite of Yutaka. He spends most of the English lessons lying down under the piano. He is 9 years old and also a forth grader. He is at Fukamachi elementary school in Wakamatsu. He might be a candidate for a special "Sunflower" or "Blue Sky" class but there is no such class at Fukamachi and as long as the parents don't send their children to a special school they are being integrated. Seiya's homeroom teacher told me Seiya just can't learn English! But I don't think, it's true. He has got his moments. I used to squat beside him and tried to make him talk and he did utter one word or the other. And once he even came with two other boys to pick me up from the English room because the homeroom teacher wanted their lesson to be held in the classroom. Back in class and "mission completed" he was so proud of himself, he repeated and repeated: "Eigo no sensei yonda." (I called the Englishteacher, I CALLED the Englishteacher!) He is a cute boy.
Good luck to you, Seiya-chan, whatever you do!
