Subj: thanks for your mail

Mister Takaoka has better foreign language skills than I do. I posted something on the BBS of the Orion candy company (purveyors of candy cigarettes). Though the BBS was in Japanese, I posted in English. But Mister Takaoka sent this email in English, not his native tongue. If only more people were like Mister Takaoka and fewer people were like me, the world would be a better place.

mr. goro takaoka

I told Mr. Takaoka that I was a computer programmer who'd been to Japan in 1992 and 2000. I noted that his English was good and asked if he'd lived in America. He replied:

Hi, Mr.. L.A. Hosken

I got around 120 times lessons heretofore's very difficult for me

he is my teacher. his name is will. he is an American.

I said I'd gone to Japan to visit friends, and there the matter rested.
