Recently, I talked with a teacher from Bosnia and Herzegovina as an online English lesson.
Since it was the first talking for us, we introduced ourselves each other.
I had thought that she didn't know the word 'Ikebana' in Japanese. So, I told that I like `arranging flowers' instead of saying 'Ikebana'. However, she asked me if it was Ikebana. I then thought that she had known the word because she had talked about Ikebana with her Japanese students before.

To my surprise, she told me that her mother used to do Ikebana when my teacher was a child. I asked her whether her mother learned from Japanese, but she didn't know about it. According to her, those days in her country, some women used to do Ikebana. However, these days there are fewer.

At first, I was going to learn about a daily news from her, but I got interested in her country more. So we talked about her country during the lesson eventually.
She also introduced me about her country's some typical food. All of them looked very delicious.

My previous image of Bosnia and Herzegovina was only the war, but now I'm really interested in this country. Especially, I want to know about Ikebana there.

Recently, I talked with a teacher from Bosnia and Herzegovina for my online English lesson. Since it was our first lesson with one another, we introduced ourselves.

During our introduction, I had presumed that she did not know the word 'Ikebana'. So, I said that I liked 'arranging flowers' instead of saying 'Ikebana'. However, she asked me if I was talking about Ikebana. I then assumed that she knew the word because she had talked about Ikebana with some of her previous Japanese students.

To my surprise, she told me that when she was a child, her mother used to do Ikebana. I asked whether her mother had learned Ikebana from a Japanese instructor, but she said that she didn't know. According to my instructor, in those days in her country, some women used to do Ikebana, but nowadays, there are not so many who practice it.

At first, I was going to learn English from an article in the daily news, but I became more interested in her country. So, we instead, ended up talking about her country during the lesson.

She also introduced me to some of the typical meals served in her country. All of them looked very delicious.

My previous image of Bosnia and Herzegovina was formed from photos and video of their war. Now, however, I am really interested in this country. I would especially love to learn more about the styles of Ikebana which are practiced there.


Re: English Corrections

Hello, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.
I have just learned from you how to use the words 'presume' and 'assume'.
I checked them again on my dictionary.

I thought "ikebana" was a Japanese word used in other languages a lot. Examples: miso, karaoke, ramen ---> we don't translate these words, we just use them normally.

Re: No title

Hello, Always visiting.

Does it mean that many people know the word 'Ikebana' in your country?
Many of the online English teacher don't know it seemingly. Is it because of younger teachers? I'm not sure.
Thank you for your comment.

Hmm, Sakae I'm not sure. Maybe it depends on how old the teacher is and where he or she is from originally. I think some of your teachers are not from the US, so I wonder if they know about it.
