I had composed this arrangement of Loquat (ビワ) and Rose (バラ).

I often used to see loquat trees in the mainland, but I haven't seen one here in Hokkaido.
Now, double cherry blossoms are beautiful here.

By the way, I have chosen the same online English teacher almost everyday recently.
He speaks English fast and his lessons are no waste. I mean that he starts on the main lesson soon after a few words. And his lesson goes fast.
I think that it is good, because when I choose a friendly teacher, we end up talking just free conversations. I really enjoy talking with her, but I hardly learn from her.

However, in these days, it seemed that the 'no waste teacher' was often doing other things while I was reading a few paragraphs of the material according to the screen.
This morning, when I was repeating a few paragraphs after him as usual, he stopped reading after me, although he was supposed to read loud next. I knew he was doing another thing instead of watching the lines where I was reading. I got angry and I said to him, "Excuse me, what are you doing now?"
He excused that he thought I was thinking then, so, he was waiting.
I didn't say anything more than that, but I gave up choosing him anymore.

There are many online English teachers, but it is difficult to find an excellent one.

By the way, I *had chosen the same online English teacher almost everyday recently.

* Had is used because of what you had said at the end of this article.

He speaks English fast, and there is no wasted time in his lessons. He starts on the main lesson almost straight away. His lessons seem to end quickly only because they are very efficient.
I think that it is good because when I choose a friendly teacher, we end up just having free conversations. I really enjoy talking with them, but I hardly learn anything when I do.

However, recently, it seemed that the 'no waste teacher' was often doing other things while I was reading a few paragraphs of the material, according to the screen.
This morning, when I was repeating a few paragraphs after him as usual, he stopped reading after me, although he was supposed to read aloud next. I knew he was doing something else instead of watching the lines where I was reading. I got angry and I said to him, "Excuse me, what are you doing now?"

*He excused that he thought I was thinking then, so, he was waiting.

*I don't understand your meaning here. I am assuming that he had given an excuse which you thought had been transparently false, after which he remained silent on the issue.

I didn't say anything more, but I gave up choosing him anymore.

What are you looking for in an online English teacher? What kinds of skills do you want to learn? Are you looking for pronunciation, grammar, listening, or some other skill?

Re: English Corrections

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you so much for the corrections.

As for *He excused that he thought I was thinking then, so, he was waiting.

He said to me that the reason why he remained silent was that he was waiting for me. He expected that I wanted to ask something from the paragraph I had read.

However, I didn't believe this. According to the screen, it seemed that there were two screens on his computer. One was our material, and the other was something else which he was interested in. While I was reading the paragraphs, he was watching the other screen, and he was sometimes looking down to type or so.
He should have read next paragraph soon after I read.

Hi, Always visiting.

Wow, that's a good question.
Well, I want a teacher to instruct me. Do you remember that I mentioned about an amazing online English teacher on my blog before? I'm looking for a teacher like her.
When I took her lesson, I had to prepare thoroughly before the lessons. I was always nervous, but it was good for me. I had to study hard in those days.
I wanted to continue her lessons, but unfortunately, she quit working (teaching) at the online English school.

Re: No title
