Wow! Thank you so much for leaving the comment, Ayako-san. :-)
Isn't it funny that you sound more like a teacher? Anyway, I was very happy having you in my CSK class. I wish you more than just luck on your future English study. Please drop by here and Quick Write Forum anytime. And let's get together again in the fall at ちばチャン again, okay?

QW 020912 “Ayako-san and Aya”

Can you imagine what CSK stands for? Hint 1: It’s related to languages. Hint 2 : It’s part of the class name for non-English-majoring students. You see that? Ta-da! It’s “Chinese Spanish Korean”. People from one of the two CSK Sophomore English classes that I taught this academic year got together tonight and had an alumni party at a Japanese bar near the campus. As far back as I can remember, it was the very first time for me to be invited to a semester-end gathering by the uni-students that I had taught. It was an honorable occasion for me to join the party as their English teacher, knowing that they wanted me to be there. I was quite relaxed from the beginning because I knew all of the students very well and I also knew they were looking forward to seeing me outside the classroom. It turned out just as I had expected. I had great time hanging out with my lovable students and listening to their hilarious interactions. Yeah, their talk was so hilarious! It was as if I was listening to astute comedians making fun of each other without any offense or cynicism, but simply with humor.

In the beginning of the gathering, one of the students said that it was a little strange that I kept speaking Japanese. For them, I was the teacher who spoke only English, which actually proved that I had successfully fulfilled my commitment as an English teacher who teaches English in English, and made me feel honored. The funny thing was that there were three people whose names were “Aya” or “Ayako”, me included. One of them was called “Sony” as her nickname and the other is called “Ayako-san” with respect, and I was called, as always, “Aya”. The girl called “Ayako-san” sounded more like a teacher and I was like one of their friends, which in fact was very comfortable for me. I’ve somehow found out that how students call their teachers can influence the view they would have towards their teachers and the motivation in learning with those teachers. The more intimate they regard their teacher as, the more likely it would be for them to enjoy taking a class and become motivated in learning. I am quite happy with the fact that my students casually call me “Aya”, feeling intimacy to me. In this coming April, I’ll again ask my new students to call me “Aya”.
