We had quiet a dinner with guests from Taiwan. I was so happy to meet my friends.
I get along with Mrs Y because we love shopping. But we didn't have a time for shopping. She wanted to talk with me because she could not speak Japanese. Her husband can speak Japanese well and he usually can do interpretation to his family. Her family visits to Japan many time. So they told me they wanted to buy a house near our house. They needed to have a Japanese bank account, but they didn't have it now. I did not know how to have it. She added that she wanted salesladies or men who can speak English at stores. I thought we needed to study English. I will finish my job until March...I maight be looking for a new job which is a saleslady...
