2019年1月7日「モバイル英語学習」第586号(英語のエッセイ):Sunrise, Food and Resolutions

—————–

The New Year’s vacation is over now. How did you spend it? Did you get up early and see the first sunrise of the year? I did! Did you eat any Japanese New Year’s food? I only ate rice cakes, but my students told me that they ate “datemaki” (a rolled sweet omelet), “kurikinton” (sweetened mashed sweet potatoes and chestnuts), and “zoni” (rice cakes in soup). If you were watching TV, you probably saw the Hakone Ekiden, a long-distance relay race from Tokyo to Hakone and back. I saw some highlights. Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? My resolution is to read one book a week. (by Professor Douglas Jarrell)
