So Mountaincastle-sensei, head of English at Kagikou, comes up to me this morning and tells me I have to give my goodbye speech to the entire 900-strong student body tomorrow morning. Yeah, thanks for the heads up. It's more notice than I got when I first came here, however, and had to introduce myself in the same fashion, back in the Higashi Kougyou days. The nerves haven't gone, though, despite having won a contest in the interim where I had to give a speech in Japanese for seven minutes. This should be a breeze in comparison.
Will report back tomorrow if I survive.
