Katya, an English Teacher

When she came to Japan, Katya started learning Japanese in a Japanese school in Kofu. She learned it for one year.  She kept learning Chinese, too, going to a Chinese lesson once a week.

It was not easy to find a job even after her graduation, but one day she sent me an e-mail to my cell phone saying, “I found a job”.  Her Chinese teacher introduced her to a kindergarten for English teaching.  She started teaching English then.  Katya became popular among kids, and jobs after jobs started to come.

On Friday, she teaches from the morning till the evening.  Friday is the day when I cook the most.  Today, I prepared basil spaghetti.  It was a success.  We had it with an Australian wine.  Maya-san kept asking us for a share (and we agreed).

While I am writing this article, Maya-san is watching chocolates on the table.  Sorry, Maya-san, chocolates are No-No.

    It’s not an easy life in many ways, even if you find work. Moving country is always stressful – especially when there’s not a strong local (native) community of Russians in Kofu. I would really like to hear more of Katya’s experiences moving to Japan – and some of the difficulties she’s had.

    By the way, her photography just keeps getting better and better.

    Katya has been trying very hard in Japan. I will write about her experiences in my future posts.
    She says she is glad to hear your compliment about her photos, but that she is not satisfied with them yet.
