Konnichiwa!! (Japanese classes)


Yesterday I started classes at the JCCC (Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre) here in Toronto.

When I was in Venezuela I took one level of Japanese, but didn't go anymore because of timing issues and the teacher was all from "the man first" culture.

Here, I've only had one class and I'm having a blast! Is one day a week, hour and a half, for 10 classes, for $100, not bad! The only bad part is that it's only during spring and fall, so no winter or summer sessions... Still don't know if I'm going to find another place for that time yet, or just wait until spring, but we'll see :)

My class is 8 guys and 5 girls, and everyone has interesting stories on why they are learning japanese; including 2 that are learning so they can comunicate with their parents in law xD

The other funny thing is how many languages we talk. I was talking to the girl sitting next to me, and the guy sitting next to her, and between the 3 of us, we know 5 languages and learning japanese now! Pretty fun :)

The Bamford Heritage Bicolor Paul Newman Daytona is obviously replica watches sale based on Rolex's existing Daytona model. As such, it's powered by Rolex's almost legendary caliber 4130 movement for peerless timekeeping. The case is 40mm wide and, like the Bamford Heritage Explorer I, has been given Bamford's light grey replica watches sale Military Grade Titanium Coating. Like all of Bamford's watches, these new Heritage watches will be divisive. I can already hear naysayers rolex replica uk cry, “As if butchering a Rolex isn't bad enough, these watches are copying from vintage Rolex watches!" They have a point, but the way I see it, it's a way for vintage Rolex owners to own something that looks like a vintage model from Rolex (and it actually is a Rolex underneath) that's rolex replica sale freshened up without being a totally blacked-out Bamford. Not everyone wants to go on months-long searches for their grail vintage Rolex, and I suspect even fewer still will audemars piguet replica want to deal with all the hassle surrounding authenticity and mechanical reliability.
