感謝

突然ではございますが、この度サンライズ英会話を去ることになりました。
なかなかお別れを言うタイミングがなく(そして、お別れが辛いことと、また戻ってこられるかもしれないとの期待を込めて)、大変恐縮ですがブログで失礼いたします。
昨年の4月からここのスタッフとして働き始め、皆様とお会いでき、陰ながらサポートさせていただけたことを心から嬉しく有難く思います。ここで皆様から英語の話はもちろん、皆様のお仕事の話、学校、旅行、昔のことなどもお話しいただき、私自身も勉強させていただきました。ありがとうございました。

Lets make some examples:

So Long & Thank You!

So Long & Thank You!

I can definitely say that my 7 months here at Sunrise have been some of the most exciting and fun months in my life. Both in and out of work. I have over this period met many new, interesting and fantastic people. From talking about everyday things to cultural differences, I have learned a great deal from you and I hope I have been able to help you achieve a bit more in your English studies as well.

Secret Santa

Some people take part in Secret Santa exchanges. Secret Santa is a fun way to exchange gifts with your friends, co-workers, or acquaintances. Many people enjoy being surprised by unpredictable gifts.

  • First, the group sets a price for the presents.

  • Then, each person buys something around that price.

  • Finally, everyone exchanges gifts at a party.

A few years ago I experienced Secret Santa at work. There were about 30 people. 

I remember buying something predictable, a box of novelty chocolates for $10.

At the party we made a big circle of chairs and the presents were put into a big bag. Then one by one we pulled a present out of the bag. I recieved Russian doll nail clippers. Another co-worker received a purple wig.
