Today I had my special Canada voice class. I got two class periods to talk about and take questions about Canada. I wish I had more time!
After a brief introduction, I ran through comparisons of Japan to Canada (population, area, GDP, exports, etc.) and took questions. After the break, I showed off some of my pictures from Canada, including lots of snowy winter pictures. Then it was time for “Canada: Myth or Fact”, where I gave some popular stereotypes about Canada and the students had to decide if they were true or not. Some examples include “Hockey is Canada’s national sport”, “Canada doesn’t have an army” and “All Canadians leave their doors unlocked”. (all myth BTW).
Basically I got paid to talk about Canada for 80 minutes today. Life is good.
