7 July 2020

  Summer is here! I certainly look forward to more sunny days. I can't believe that 2020 is halfway over! Hopefully, 2020 won't bring us any more surprises.

  While countries like the US and Brazil have had many new cases of Covid-19, it has been great to see that Shimane is still without confirmed cases recently. We have been very fortunate. All of us at Oregon want to stay open and have face-to-face lessons as long as possible, but we are ready to go back online if needed.

  News of police brutality and riots in the US has really disappointed me. I can't believe how often American police officers use their guns on people. I also can't believe that so many Americans would destroy stores and shops of hardworking people that had nothing to do with police brutality. I feel so lucky to be living in a country where people don't riot, steal or shoot others. I am so happy to be able to raise my kids here in Shimane. I have no desire to move back to California. I sure hope the political climate in the US improves soon!

  If this were a normal year, I would be giving everyone information about the summer BBQ, but unfortunately this year we think it's best to cancel in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

  Let's hope the second half of 2020 is better than the first half. Looking forward to seeing everyone in class!


 夏がやって来ましたね!夏の晴れの日が続くのが楽しみです。2020年が半分終わっていることが信じられません。2020年の後半はびっくりさせられることがないといいですけどね。

 アメリカやブラジルに比べて、日本のコロナウイルス感染はまだまだ少ないですね。最近、島根県内での感染が確認されていないことに安心しています。とてもラッキーですね。いつでもオンラインの準備は出来ていますが、オレゴンスタッフはこのまま対面レッスンが続くことを願っております。

 最近、アメリカの警察残虐行為やそれに応じた暴動や無法をとても残念に思っています。アメリカの警察が簡単に人に銃を向けることが信じられません。そして、大勢の人が事件に関係ない人の店を壊したり燃やしたりすることも信じられません。こういうニュースを見ると、安全な島根県で子育て出来ることを幸運に思います。アメリカに帰る気は全くありません。アメリカの政治情勢が早く改善されることを願っています。

 通常の年なら夏のBBQを案内すべき時期ですが、残念ながら今年はコロナウイルス感染防止のため、BBQをキャンセルすることにしました。申し訳ありません。

 2020年の後半は前半よりいいことがいっぱいありますように。またレッスンで会いましょう!


BBQ 2020 Cancelled

  While there is most likely very little risk of getting Covid-19 in Shimane, if there were an outbreak at our BBQ we would be devastated. In order to protect students and staff, we have decided to cancel BBQ 2020.

  We are very sorry about this. We will have to make up for it and have a massive BBQ 2021! We wish everyone a safe summer!
